Permissions and Terms of Service

A few ground rules regarding this site…

The following may sound like it’s coming from an evil empire, but okaykate.com is not an empire and has no desire to be evil. However we know people who can be evil if you take advantage of us, so here is what we require to protect you from harm.

1. Welcome, but please keep your hands inside the ride…
Basically, we love having you here. We like to share ideas and stories and pictures of our work, but it is our work and is protected by applicable copyright and trademark laws. If you’d like to use a picture from this site please send us an email to kate(@)okaykate.com with “picture request” in the subject line. Tell us what you want and why and we’ll get back to you quicker than you can say Copyright Infringement with a yay or a nay. Chin up! We usually answer "Yay."

2. You can use us sometimes…
We like to be used in a mutually beneficial way. We do not like to be used as if we are a machine generating free content. Permission is granted to temporarily download one copy of any materials offered for download on okaykate.com. This copy is for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title.

Email us with a particular request for use and we will get back to you, but without our permission you may not: modify or copy the materials; use the materials for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (commercial or non-commercial); attempt to decompile or reverse engineer any offerings contained on okaykate.com; remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials; or transfer the materials to another person or "mirror" the materials on any other server.

This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of the above restrictions and may be terminated by okaykate.com at any time. Upon terminating your viewing of these materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession whether in electronic or printed format.

3. What you see is what you get…
The materials on okaykate.com are provided "as is". We makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaim and negate all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Furthermore, okaykate.com does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its Internet web site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.

4. We have our limitations…
In no event shall okaykate.com or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on the okaykate.com, even if Kate Godfrey or an okaykate.com authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.

5. What we can and can’t do about errors…
The materials appearing on okaykate.com could include errors. Sorry! We do try our darndest to get things right. We may make changes to the materials contained on this site at any time without notice, and we certainly will if you point out an error to us. However, the okaykate “we” is one person—a person often working under deadline. We do not make any commitment to update materials immediately.

6. Problems with links
okaykate.com is not responsible for the contents of linked sites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by okaykate.com of the entire site although we don’t go about willy-nilly linking to things. No single person can police the web frontier. Use of linked web sites is at the user's own risk.

7. We can and may change our mind…
okaykate.com may revise the terms of use for its site at any time without notice. By using this web site you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

8. Our higher authority…
Any claim relating to okaykate.com shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law provisions.

9. How we feel about sharing your information…
Our privacy is very important to us. We shall do onto you as we like to be done to. Thus, we will never knowingly share your email address or any other information about you, not even if the money offered will pay the rent. That is our privacy policy even though we may starve while sticking to it.
