Small Print For This Blog

There are many aspects to writing a Travel blog and keeping it going. It is not all about traveling to wonderful destinations because there is the travel blog small print that I need to tell you about. This governs the privacy and usage for  readers and users.

Copyright Information: I love to share things with people but get a little hot under the collar when people use my pictures and articles without my permission.If you want to re-print any of the articles from the Turkish Travel Blog or use my pictures, then simply send me an email asking for permission and that will ensure that I stay a happy bunny. I will ask for credit and a link back to this website as part of the creative commons attribution policy. Please note, that if you use my content with attribution, I will file a DMCA policy complaint with your host provider.

Disclosure Policy: Running a Travel Blog can be a costly experience so I am always on the lookout for people to help support my traveling fund. From time to time, I may receive free products or services, sponsorship or advertising revenue. To support costs, I am also a member of various affiliate schemes so if you do purchase a product, I will receive a small commission. This does not increase the price for the purchaser and it just enables me to keep the site running.

Privacy Policy: I love it when people leave comments on my posts, whether they are criticism or agreement so feel free to say your piece as your email address will be kept safe and not given to any third parties. This also extends to anyone that signs up for the email notification of new posts.

Attribution Policy: If anyone has contributed towards my articles in terms of content or pictures, this will be disclosed on the same page.
