I reserve the right to change any of these Term and Conditions at any given time on this website. I love changing things up so you might have to check back here often.
Even though I work really hard to provide you with up-to-date information, I make no representations or warranties of any kind (expressed or implied) about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of any information, products, services or related graphics contained on Run and Smile for any purpose.

Remember, always double check things like current prices, addresses, opening hours, phone numbers, and website addresses.

As soon as I’m done with my run I promise to get back to you, ASAP!

Hold Harmless
This is a personal blog. I am not a nutritionist, therapist, or trainer. All opinions expressed here are my own. All the information provided on runandsmile is for general information and entertainment purposes only and is the expressed opinion of myself, Mary Jo Minarich (Run and Smile). As you read this blog, do what is best for you and your dietary/exercise needs. Please turn to your doctor or professional for advice specific to your needs and body. I just want to share with you my life adventures, experiences and what works for me.

Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage (including without limitation indirect or consequential loss or damage) or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of or in connection with the use of this website.

I cannot be held responsible for any offense taken due to translation, interpretation or mistakes in grammar and/or punctuation of my website’s content. In other words, please forgive any grammar mistakes and move on.

Copyright Policy
Unless otherwise noted, I (Mary Jo Minarich from Run and Smile) am the legal copyright holder of all (written, media and graphic) material on this website. But if you like a post, feel free to link to it! You may use a portion less than 1/3 as long as you link to the original post and give me credit. (Hey, I’m working hard on this stuff!) If you want to use more than 1/3 of a post please contact me to request permission. I’m sure I’ll say “Sure, sounds great!”

Privacy Statement
Any personal and/or contact information provided to me will be kept private. You will not be spammed in any way, I will not send you Holiday or Birthday Cards (but if you request one, I will) and I will not sell or disclose your information to any other companies.

I am not responsible for the privacy practices of any of my advertisers or blog commenter.

Reserve Rights
I, Mary Jo Minarich from Run and Smile, reserves the right to change the focus of the blog (for example, if I become an astronaut, I will only speak of the cosmos—which could happen), to shut it down, sell it, change the terms of use (go to a paid platform) at my own discretion.

Feel free to disagree with me or tell me I’m completely crazy in the comments section of each blog entry. Please be polite because my feelings are easily hurt. I reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to runandsmile without notice due to: comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam, comments including profanity, comment containing language or concept that could be deemed offensive, comments that attack a group of person individually, or comments from my husband who wants more key lime pies made. I do accept encouraging notes, flowers or cupcakes.

Advertisers and Sponsors
I’m sure I’ll want to share with you some products that I own or plan on purchasing. I LOVE sharing! I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not Run and Smile.

Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. Just because I love to wear running skirts (pink ones!), doesn’t have to mean you will like it too!

To help the website expand, to cover costs of running the site, some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a (very small) commission on any purchases made after clicking on one of these links. I will do my absolute best to only provide you with information about products that I truly believe in. I’m still against paid recommendations disguised as personal opinions, so anything I rave about is because I want to share something amazing with you – not because I was paid to say it. However I’m willing to consider sponsored posts if the product or service is one I’d really truly use or have used and like. No matter what, I promise that anything I write here is my own honest opinion. I will never take your trust for granted. All reviews on my website will be presented honestly and I will disclose whether I will be receiving any commissions or products for free.

Letters to the Editor
Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these letters or emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, blogs posts or columns. Big compliments will be framed and hung on my wall.

Thank you so much for visiting my website and Enjoy!

Mary Jo Minarich
