I maintain this site (the "Site") for your personal entertainment. Please feel free to browse the Site, however, your access to and use of the Site is subject to the following terms and conditions ("Terms and Conditions") and all applicable laws (including those of the Grand Duchy of Wotanberg, if it really exists) . By accessing and browsing the Site, you accept, without limitation or qualification, the Terms and Conditions.
1. The other pages on the Site were developed to provide "atmosphere" for my hobby model railroad. They are shared with you in the hope that you will find them entertaining. Neither my model railroad nor the Site is intended to serve any public or commercial purpose.
2. You are hereby put on notice that many, if not most, of the persons, places, businesses, and products referred to on the Site are not real, including (by way of example only):
Without limiting the force and effect of any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, and by way of example only, I assume no liability or responsibility for either of the following:
3. Some of the imaginary persons, places, businesses and products referred to in the Site are characters, places, businesses, or products found in various literary works, motion pictures, television shows, and radio programs. For at least some of these references, I provide a link to a vendor of the work where the character, place, business, or product is found. I neither receive, nor seek, any compensation for any such reference or link nor am I, in any way related or connected with any person or business involved with such a work, excepting, as a reader, viewer, listener, customer, and/or consumer. No such reference or link should be understood or construed as an endorsement of the Site by any person or business involved with such a work. My reference to any character, place, business, or product found in any work, is not intended to infringe upon any rights that any author, actor, copryright owner, or other person may have in that work or that character, place, business, or product. Because I believe that I am not legally required to do so under these circumstances, I have neither sought, nor received, any permission to make any such reference unless otherwise noted. However, I will remove any such reference if requested or directed to do so by someone appropriately authorized to do so.
4. On some pages of the Site, reference may be made and/or links provided to real persons, places, businesses, or products. (For example, all of the beers referred to are real, except for Elsinore Beer.) Any such reference or link is provided solely for your convenience and I neither receive, nor seek, any compensation for any such reference or link nor am I, in any way related or connected with any such person, place, business, or product, excepting, in some cases, as a fan, visitor, customer, or consumer. No such reference or link should be understood or construed as an endorsement of the Site by the person, place, business, or the producer of product to which a reference is made or for which a link is provided. Because I believe that I am not legally required to do so under these circumstances, I have neither sought, nor received, any permission to make any such reference or link unless otherwise noted. However, I will remove any such reference or link if requested or directed to do so by someone appropriately authorized to do so.
5. I believe that my use of any image or material used on the Site which was acquired from another source is in conformity with all applicable copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes. Because I understand that I am not legally required to do so under these circumstances, I have neither sought, nor received, any permission to make use any such image or material unless otherwise noted. However, I will remove any such image or material if requested or directed to do so by someone appropriately authorized to do so.
6. You may download any image or material displayed on the Site for non-commercial, personal use only if you also retain any copyright and other proprietary notices contained on the material or accompanying the image. You may not, however, distribute, modify, transmit, reuse, repost, or use the content of the Site for commercial purposes without my written permission. However, notwithstanding 3, 4, & 5. above, I neither warrant nor represent that your use of the images or materials displayed on the Site will not infringe the rights of third parties and I assume no responsibility or liability for any such infringment.
7. Your use of and browsing in the Site are at your own risk. Neither I nor any other person or business involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Site is liable for any direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of your access to, or use of, the Site.
