Terms of Use

The following Terms of Use govern your use of the 6200 Productions website and its content. Access to this website and its content is offered subject to your acceptance of all the terms and conditions specified herein and any other operating rules (including the Privacy Policy — please read it!) we may publish on the site. By accessing or using the website, you signify your agreement to and agree to be bound by these terms. If you do not agree to the terms, you may not access the site.

For purposes of these Terms of Use, the words “we,” “our,” and “us” shall be deemed to refer to Aaron Severson dba 6200 Productions, a U.S. citizen residing and operating in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

Please note that these Terms of Use apply ONLY to the use of the 6200 Productions website itself. Any writing, editing, or other professional services we may perform for you, or any other professional services, employment, or business dealings we undertake that are not specifically related to this website, shall be subject to the terms of separate client, employment, or other applicable agreements (whether written or verbal) — or, in the case of other websites we own and/or operate, those sites’ individual terms and policies — and any other legal requirements that may apply, NOT to this policy or the Privacy Policy for this website. (You are not obligated to use this website in order to hire us!)

Variations in text style (such as different font weights, sizes, or colors) are used throughout these Terms of Use to improve readability, but have no legal significance or effect.

Terms of Service for WordPress.com (primarily the version dated 30 June 2015, with some very minor portions of later versions) under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license. This policy (including both our adaptation of the Automattic terms and our preexisting terms and language as well as our subsequent updates) is offered under the same license. If you elect to use or further adapt our version, please credit Automattic Inc. as well as us. We also strongly recommend that you note the Effective Date shown toward the bottom of this page and include that date in your attribution if it is reasonably practical to do so. (For a full modification history of the Automattic terms, see their change log.)

    3. Make copies of the comment and its contents for routine backup or other internal administrative purposes.
    4. Transmit the comment and its contents via email to the site administrator and, if applicable, to other users who have requested email notifications of replies or follow-up comments.

Please note that in certain cases, we may respond to your comment by email (using the email address you provided) prior to or instead of publishing the comment on the website, particularly if we have questions about any of the above-listed points.

Comments are published on the site at our sole discretion. We do not guarantee that any comment posted will be published on the site and reserve the right to delete or unpublish a comment at any time for any reason, with or without notice. Comments may be screened prior to posting, to prevent spam, or to defuse contentious arguments.

We reserve the right to redact, edit, or otherwise modify a comment if:

  • It exceeds the maximum length permitted by the comment system.
  • Its content disrupts the formatting or functionality of the site.
  • We believe it contains malicious code, spam, or abusive language directed at another user or individual, or may violate the rights of others.

Comments posted on this website do not necessarily represent the opinions of 6200 Productions, our web host and contributors, or our advertisers. The publication of a comment does NOT necessarily represent an endorsement, validation, or warranty of its contents.

When you submit a comment, you may have the option to request email notifications each time a reply or follow-up comment is posted. If you have previously requested such notifications and wish to stop receiving them, please contact us via email (to admin (at) 6200productions (dot) com), by using the Contact Form, or by leaving a comment elsewhere on the site asking us to discontinue the notifications and we will do so at our earliest opportunity.

If you would like to edit or remove any of your published comments, please let us know by leaving another comment, emailing us at admin (at) 6200productions (dot) com, or sending us a message via the Contact Form, specifying the comment(s) in question and explaining what you want us to do with them.

Under certain rare circumstances — e.g., the restoration of the site from a backup file — a previously deleted comment may reappear. We will endeavor to promptly delete any such comments, but cannot guarantee it.

Technical problems, such as site backups or upgrades to the comment system, may occasionally result in the inadvertent deletion of recent comments. If you have a question about why a comment was deleted or not published, feel free to contact the site administrator. Again, 6200 Productions does not guarantee that any comment posted will be published.

6200 Productions accepts no liability for and offers no warranty, express or implied, of the accuracy, completeness, or fitness for any purpose of any comment or any website linked in a user comment. Any use of information in comments posted herein is solely at your own risk!

REPRINT/REUSE POLICY

  1. LINKING AND HOTLINKING: You may post, publish, or otherwise share hyperlinks to this website or any individual post/page. However, you may not “hotlink” to any image, script, or other non-text element hosted on the 6200 Productions website. (For the avoidance of doubt, “hotlinking” means means causing an image or element hosted on or served by this website to be displayed or run on some external website or service — for example, posting an image tag on your own website or forum with an HREF element pointing to the image location at 6200productions.com would constitute hotlinking, but copying a public domain image from this site and uploading that image to your own website would not.) This does NOT apply to images or content that are not hosted on or served by 6200 Productions. The use or reuse of any script, font, image, embedded video or audio recording, or other content hosted on or served by an external website is subject to the terms and conditions of the hosting site and the applicable rights holder(s).
  2. TRANSLATION AND ACCESSIBILITY AIDS: You may use automatic translation software to translate any portion of the written content for your own personal use or reference or for the purposes of creating bibliographic citations in languages other than English. You are also free to use accessibility aids or software (such as automated text readers) in any reasonable manner for purposes of enabling you to access the site and read or view its content.
  3. PUBLIC DOMAIN CONTENT: If we have used any image or other content (such as a photograph) on this website that is in the public domain in your jurisdiction, you may copy and use that public domain image or content in any manner permitted by applicable law. (Please note that material that is in the public domain in the U.S. is not necessarily in the public domain elsewhere and vice versa.) Except as required by applicable law, we offer NO WARRANTY whatsoever with regard to any public domain material we publish or display on this website (whether modified or otherwise), including, without limitation, the associated copyright and other rights information. Any use of such material is entirely at your own risk.
  4. CONTENT USED UNDER LICENSE: If we have used any content (such as text or images) on this website under a Creative Commons or similar license (details of which will be noted within or adjacent to the applicable content), we cannot sub-license such content, but you are free to copy or use the licensed content in any manner allowed under the applicable license (or any other terms offered by the applicable rights holder), or as otherwise permitted by law. If we have adapted or modified such licensed content, you may assume that our adaptations and modifications are also offered under the specified license. Except as expressly required under the terms of the applicable Creative Commons or other license or otherwise required by law, we offer NO WARRANTY whatsoever with regard to any material used or offered under such a license, including, without limitation, the associated license, copyright, and other rights information. Any use of such material is entirely at your own risk.
  5. CONTENT OFFERED UNDER LICENSE: In the event we have explicitly offered some portion of the content on the site (for example, a specific post or page) under a Creative Commons or similar license — the details of which will be noted within or adjacent to the applicable content — you are free to copy or use that content in any manner permitted by the applicable license or otherwise allowed by law. Except as expressly required under the terms of the applicable Creative Commons or other license or otherwise required by law, we offer NO WARRANTY whatsoever with regard to any material used or offered under such a license, including, without limitation, the associated license, copyright, and other rights information. Any use of such material is entirely at your own risk.
  6. COMMENTS: Comments posted on the 6200 Productions website are the property of the people who originally posted those comments. Except as otherwise allowed by applicable law, if you wish to reprint or reuse a comment posted on this website by someone other than us, you will need to seek the permission of the original poster (or other applicable rights holder(s)). We cannot grant such permission, although if you obtain the permission of the original poster/rights holder(s) to reprint or reuse their comment, you do not need any additional permission from us unless you also wish to reprint our comments and/or other content owned by us (for instance, if you want to reprint a comment thread between us and one or more other site visitors). The same is true of photographs, images, or other non-text content in comments left by people other than us.
  7. ALL OTHER CONTENT: Except as specified above or otherwise allowed by applicable law, you may not copy, republish, repost, or otherwise redistribute any portion of the content from this website, or publish or distribute translations of the content into other languages, without our prior written authorization or, for content not owned by us (e.g., a photo we have adapted with the express permission of the photographer), the authorization of the applicable rights holder.

All other rights, including the right to use any logos, trademarks, or service marks on the 6200 Productions website, are reserved. For questions or permissions, please contact us via the contact form.

6200 Productions will take reasonable efforts to terminate access to the website by a visitor who is determined to be a repeat infringer of copyrights or other intellectual property rights (e.g., by blocking the user’s IP address).

GOVERNING LAW

Except to the extent otherwise provided by applicable law, these Terms of Use and any access to or use of the 6200 Productions website will be governed by the laws of the state of California and of the United States of America, and the proper venue for any disputes arising out of or relating to any of the same will be the local, state, and/or federal courts located in Los Angeles, California.

TERMINATION AND SEVERABILITY

Any provision of these Terms of Use which by their nature should survive termination (including, without limitation, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability) shall survive termination.

If any part of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of these Terms of Use, or any breach thereof, in any one instance will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof.
