Please know that I sincerely care about each one of you and do my absolute best to protect your information, each time you are on this site. I will also ONLY recommend products that I know to be superb and helpful – there are enough products out there already that we have to go through. You don’t need someone recommending crappy products to you. I want you to be happy with any and all recommendations you receive from me. 🙂

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
We agree to comply with CANSPAM policies and honor your rights.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re almost home now! Any regulatory or privacy fans out there reading down here?! I hope so! Your rights are important!
This blog is principally written and edited by me, Morgan Garcia. From time to time, PCOS Project will and does accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.

The owner of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owner. If I claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.

Terms of Service and Additional Disclosures
Although I would love to assume that everyone that comes to this site intends to foster knowledge expansion among the PCOS community, we have all seen the nasty trolls that lurk and take away the fun for everyone. For that reason, I would like to protect PCOS project with the following statements:
Here is goes:
1. Copyright: PCOS Project is owned and administered by Morgan Garcia. All rights reserved.
2. Content: I am responsible for the content of this site, not including visitor comments or the content of individual contributors. Other than visitor comments and specifically stated guest contributions, PCOS Project reflects the personal views and opinions of Morgan Garcia.
3. Credit: I make every effort to give proper credit to any sources of content or information in this blog. If you feel you or another source lacks credit, please contact me as soon as possible! No one likes a plagiarist.
4. Accuracy and Validity: Believe it or not, people make mistakes from time to time! True life, I am far from perfect and found my cell phone in the fridge the other day. But, I try to make all facts and information as accurate as possible. In addition, PCOS Project is a work in progress. The world is an ever-changing place and medicine is ever-evolving, which means that content can become outdated quickly. While I hope to avoid having outdated material on this site, I can’t guarantee that everything is timely. I will certainly try my best, but I cannot say that you can always rely on the timeliness or accuracy of the information at PCOS Project.
5. Comments: I am not responsible for any comments made by contributors in the Comments section. Rude or offensive comments will not be published or will be immediately deleted. I will exercise my right to moderate and edit comments which are deemed to be offensive, childish or just plain dumb as a box of rocks. Because this is a supportive and loving community, I do not think this will be necessary.
6. Liability: As a reader, I ask that you do not hold me liable for libel (say that three times fast – but really, it’s actually kinda hard!) or defamation in the content of PCOS Project. In addition, there is no intention to do harm by hosting content at PCOS Project. The content at PCOS Project is not to be taken as fact nor absolute (though I do try my best to cite all relevant medical literature and give you the most up to date information that I can). If people use the information and somehow are injured, I am not to be held responsible. The sites that PCOS Project links to via hyperlinks are not under my control. Those sites are responsible for the content of those sites. I wish that I could say that I was in control of the internet…that would be pretty awesome, not gonna lie. But sadly, this is untrue and I am not the queen of the internet. Nor do I have control over certain things that my site links to.
So there it is. I’ve done the thing. Aren’t you glad we got that out of the way? Phew!
Now back to the business of blogging about PCOS!
