Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, both available under the Creative Commons Sharealike license, that have been modified to exclude specifics to Automattic (like mentions of “JetPack”, “WordPress.com”, and “VIP”) and have more generic language that can apply to most any site or service provider, including single sites, subscription sites, blog networks, and others. FYI: You need to edit the actual plugin file before using it (I know it’s not perfect, feel free to contribute your code edits). Then you can add your own page and use one of the 3 available shortcodes:

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Melissa collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mo purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mo visitors use its website. From time to time, Melissa may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Melissa also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on talkingheart2heart.com blogs/sites. Melissa only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mo websites choose to interact with Melissa in ways that require Melissa to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Melissa gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at talkingheart2heart.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Melissa are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Melissa collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Melissa. Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Melissa may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Melissa may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mo behalf or to provide services available at Mo websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mo websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Melissa will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Melissa believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Melissa, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Melissa website and have supplied your email address, Melissa may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Melissa and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Melissa takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Melissa uses cookies to help Melissa identify and track visitors, their usage of Melissa website, and their website access preferences. Melissa visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mo websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mo websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Melissa, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Melissa goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Melissa may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Melissa and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Melissa may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Mo sole discretion. Melissa encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a talkingheart2heart.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.

Privacy Policy:

Melissa G. McMaster ("Melissa") operates talkingheart2heart.com and may operate other websites. It is Mo policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Melissa collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mo purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mo visitors use its website. From time to time, Melissa may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Melissa also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on talkingheart2heart.com blogs/sites. Melissa only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mo websites choose to interact with Melissa in ways that require Melissa to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Melissa gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at talkingheart2heart.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Melissa are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Melissa collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Melissa. Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Melissa may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Melissa may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mo behalf or to provide services available at Mo websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mo websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Melissa will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Melissa believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Melissa, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Melissa website and have supplied your email address, Melissa may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Melissa and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Melissa takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Melissa uses cookies to help Melissa identify and track visitors, their usage of Melissa website, and their website access preferences. Melissa visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mo websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mo websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Melissa, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Melissa goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Melissa may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Melissa and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Melissa may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Mo sole discretion. Melissa encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a talkingheart2heart.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.

WARNING: I’m human. I’m not perfect. Neither are you. Neither is this…
But hopefully it’s more good than bad.

/*
DISCLAIMER: I am not an attorney. I am not liable for any content, code, or other errors or omissions or inaccuracies. This plugin provides no warranties or guarantees. Do not rely on me to update the plugin ever. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am not liable if Automattic removes their permission to use and adapt their work or if this plugin blows you or your website up or does anything negative. Finally, it needs to be said: READ YOUR OWN TERMS OF SERVICE AND PRIVACY POLICY BEFORE PUBLISHING. If you do not like Automattic’s version, simply replacing their info with yours, maybe this plugin is not for you.

/*
To-Do List:
1) Change so it uses DB or an external file instead of its own plugin file (so that automatic upgrades are possible).
2) Should it be more MultiSite friendly so each site can have their own information? It doesn’t currently break MultiSite, but it’s not quite a MultiSite plugin.
3) Add smartquotes / wptexturize? I tried but didn’t get it to work.

Privacy Policy:

Melissa G. McMaster ("Melissa") operates talkingheart2heart.com and may operate other websites. It is Mo policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Melissa collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mo purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mo visitors use its website. From time to time, Melissa may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Melissa also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on talkingheart2heart.com blogs/sites. Melissa only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mo websites choose to interact with Melissa in ways that require Melissa to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Melissa gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at talkingheart2heart.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Melissa are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Melissa collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Melissa. Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Melissa may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Melissa may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mo behalf or to provide services available at Mo websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mo websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Melissa will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Melissa believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Melissa, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Melissa website and have supplied your email address, Melissa may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Melissa and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Melissa takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Melissa uses cookies to help Melissa identify and track visitors, their usage of Melissa website, and their website access preferences. Melissa visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mo websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mo websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Melissa, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Melissa goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Melissa may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Melissa and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Melissa may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Mo sole discretion. Melissa encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a talkingheart2heart.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.

$tcpp_privacypolicyheading:

$tcpp_biznamefull (“$tcpp_bizname“) operates $tcpp_domainname and may operate other websites. It is $tcpp_biznamepossessive policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, $tcpp_bizname collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. $tcpp_biznamepossessive purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how $tcpp_biznamepossessive visitors use its website. From time to time, $tcpp_bizname may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

$tcpp_bizname also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on $tcpp_domainname blogs/sites. $tcpp_bizname only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to $tcpp_biznamepossessive websites choose to interact with $tcpp_bizname in ways that require $tcpp_bizname to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that $tcpp_bizname gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at $tcpp_domainname to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with $tcpp_bizname are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, $tcpp_bizname collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with $tcpp_bizname. $tcpp_bizname does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

$tcpp_bizname may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. $tcpp_bizname may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, $tcpp_bizname does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

$tcpp_bizname discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on $tcpp_biznamepossessive behalf or to provide services available at $tcpp_biznamepossessive websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using $tcpp_biznamepossessive websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. $tcpp_bizname will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, $tcpp_bizname discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when $tcpp_bizname believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of $tcpp_bizname, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an $tcpp_bizname website and have supplied your email address, $tcpp_bizname may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with $tcpp_bizname and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. $tcpp_bizname takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. $tcpp_bizname uses cookies to help $tcpp_bizname identify and track visitors, their usage of $tcpp_bizname website, and their website access preferences. $tcpp_bizname visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using $tcpp_biznamepossessive websites, with the drawback that certain features of $tcpp_biznamepossessive websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If $tcpp_bizname, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that $tcpp_bizname goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of $tcpp_bizname may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies.

This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by $tcpp_bizname and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy:

Melissa G. McMaster ("Melissa") operates talkingheart2heart.com and may operate other websites. It is Mo policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Melissa collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Mo purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Mo visitors use its website. From time to time, Melissa may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Melissa also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on talkingheart2heart.com blogs/sites. Melissa only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Mo websites choose to interact with Melissa in ways that require Melissa to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Melissa gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at talkingheart2heart.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Melissa are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Melissa collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Melissa. Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Melissa may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Melissa may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Melissa does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Mo behalf or to provide services available at Mo websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Mo websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Melissa will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Melissa discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Melissa believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Melissa, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Melissa website and have supplied your email address, Melissa may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Melissa and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Melissa takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Melissa uses cookies to help Melissa identify and track visitors, their usage of Melissa website, and their website access preferences. Melissa visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Mo websites, with the drawback that certain features of Mo websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Melissa, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Melissa goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Melissa may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Melissa and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Melissa may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Mo sole discretion. Melissa encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a talkingheart2heart.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
