General Website Terms

1. Parties

I, Troy Simpson, run this website. This agreement is between you and me.

2. Agreement

By browsing, opening, accessing, or otherwise using this website (www.the-funny-dictionary.com), you agree to my privacy policy and to the terms you're now reading.

3. Change

I may change these terms to keep current with laws and policies. Please read these terms periodically to make sure you agree to and understand the latest terms. By continuing to use this website, you agree to the latest terms.

4. No promises

To use legal-speak, I provide this website "as is" without express or implied warranties. While I take due care and precautions, I make no warranty or representation that the content on this website, and content accessible through this site, is free from viruses or other defects and harmful components. I don't warrant that access to, or use of, this website will be uninterrupted or error-free. I don't warrant the quality, completeness, accuracy, timeliness, suitability, physical state, reliability, or a particular purpose of the content on this website or content accessible through this site.

5. Capacity

You promise me that you are 18 or older, or your parent or guardian has consented to your using this website and they agree to these terms for you.

6. Links to other websites

This website might link to third-party websites. I don't control those sites and I'm not responsible for them. I don't endorse the content of those sites. You use third-party websites at your risk. I can't promise that third-party websites don't infringe someone else’s intellectual property rights. So you mustn't take me to be authorising infringement of the intellectual property rights by my linking to those sites. I'm also not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party sites and I don't know if those third-party sites use cookies or other tracking devices. If your privacy worries you, you should find out the privacy policies of those third-party sites.

7. Advertisements

I don't necessarily endorse or recommend third-party goods or services advertised on this website.

8. Waiver

If I don't strictly enforce these terms, then it won't be a waiver of my right to strictly enforce these terms later.

9. Limit of liability

It's the nature of the Internet that things can go wrong. So, you accept the risks and responsibility for all loss, costs, damage, and other consequences of using this website or the content or material on or accessible through this website.

To use the magic legal words, I won't be liable for any loss at all (including, without limitation, special, indirect, incidental, or consequential loss, or loss of profits), damage, expense, or injury that is suffered (however so caused) in connection with your using this website or the content or material on this website (including linked websites), except for liability that I can't legally exclude. Where I can't legally exclude liability, my liability is limited to my minimum obligations required by law.

10. Severability

If a term is invalid or unenforceable, then that term will be "read down" (if it can) so that it will be valid and enforceable. If that isn't possible, then the term will, so much that it is capable, be severed from the rest of the terms to the extent of the invalidity or unenforceability, without affecting the remaining terms.

11. Governing law

These terms will be subject to and interpreted according to the laws of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). If a dispute arises between you and me, then you will submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the ACT’s courts.

Privacy policy

1. Collection

If you subscribe to this website, I collect your email address. Your email address is placed in a .txt file, which is saved on my web host's servers. I collect this information so that I can contact you with news and information I think might interest you. Occasionally, I might send an email to the email addresses I've saved in the .txt file. You can get a copy of the information I have about you by emailing me. You can tell me to remove your email address from the .txt file by emailing me.

2. Use and disclosure

I'd use your personal information for a secondary purpose only if you consented to such use, or where you would reasonably expect me to use or disclose the information, or where I am required or authorised by law.

3. Data quality

The currency, accuracy, and completeness of the personal information I collect about you is limited by the currency, accuracy, and completeness of the personal information you give me.

4. Data security

Access to your email address collected via this website is restricted to me and my web developers. My web host has a good record of protecting against hacks, viruses, phishing attacks, and so on. But, of course, there's no guarantee these days that someone might successfully be able to steal or misuse your email address. Unfortunately, there's not much more I can do to protect against this risk. So, you take the risk when providing your email address to me.

5. Openness

I do my best to explain how I manage your personal information, in documents such as this one, which I update when I can. If you have questions about the personal information I hold, the purposes for which I hold the information, and how I use, collect, and disclose that inform
