Ah yes, the legal page. We know you can’t wait to read this scintillating bit of prose, but hey, if you’re into that kinda thing, go for it! It’s the place for cautionary stuff like:
- Please don’t follow our advice. If you choose to do so, it is at your own risk.
- Information on KD’s Bricktown is highly likely to contain errors or inaccuracies.
- Home improvement can be dangerous, even downright life-threatening. If you’re not a pro, consult one before taking on any project.
- Some products we actually review based on our direct experience (these will typically have the word “review” in the title). Clever, huh?
- Many but not all “Buy Now” or similar links are affiliate links in which we might earn commissions ranging from several cents to multiple dollars! However, sadly, not enough to feed our children.
- Email, comments or posts sent to KD’s Bricktown are considered our property and all correspondence is considered available for publication. We may also stroke and edit your correspondence lovingly while reciting “my precious” over and over again.
Our team of legal eagles said that the section above was barely worth the paper it’s printed on. Since it’s not technically printed on any paper, we figured they meant it in a bad way. So rather than rely on that iffy text above, you’ll find all our actual legal and terms of service info below. The lawyers say it’s super-important, so make sure you read every last word of it before venturing into the wilds of kdsbricktown.com!
