THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE BORING. READ ON…
The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refers to ONE BRAVE COWGIRL. The terms “user,” “you,” and “your” refer to site visitors, customers, and any other users of the site.
The term “personal information” is defined as information that you voluntarily provide to us that personally identifies you and/or your contact information, such as your name, phone number, and email address.
ONE BRAVE COWGIRL is a blog discussing all aspects of dementia and dementia caregiving, with a humorous twist (the “Service”).
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
This Site only collects the personal information you voluntarily provide to us, which may include:
- First and Last Names and Email Addresses in order to subscribe visitors to the One Brave Cowgirl newsletter
The information you provide is used to process transactions, send periodic emails, and improve the service we provide. We do share your information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business and servicing clients and visitors. These trusted third parties agree to keep this information confidential. Your personal information will never be shared with unrelated third parties.
We may record information relating to your use of the Site, such as the searches you undertake, the pages you view, your browser type, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp information. We use this type of information to administer the Site and provide the highest possible level of service to you. We also use this information in the aggregate to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site.
We may send cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service. The term “cookies” refers to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the Site. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). You have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly or at all.
THIRD PARTY LINKS
We maintain security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, misuse, or disclosure. However, no exchange of data over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. While we make every effort to protect your personal information shared with us through our Site, you acknowledge that the personal information you voluntarily share with us through this Site could be accessed or tampered with by a third party. You agree that we are not responsible for any intercepted information shared through our Site without our knowledge or permission. Additionally, you release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of such intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
UPDATING YOUR INFORMATION

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
Everything written on this site, unless otherwise indicated, is MINE! ALL MINE! In other words, it’s the property of ONE BRAVE COWGIRL. Feel free to take pieces of our work and replicate it online or in print; but if you do, I’d be much obliged if you’d please link back to onebravecowgirl.com. If you want to use more than a few paragraphs, please holler at us at email@example.com.
Many of the kick butt photos on this site were taken by David & Kaylane Crandall at Crandallography. They are amazing and so fun to work with. All other photos were taken by One Brave Cowgirl or have been purchased for use as stock photography or are being used under the Creative Commons license. Any use of copyrighted photos is unintentional. Scouts honor. If you believe a mistake has occurred and that you own the copyright to any of the photos used on this site, please let us know, and we will happily remove the questionable photo immediately.
Thanks for visiting! My blog is a resource guide for educational and informational purposes. (And sometimes venting about inappropriate topics such as changing Depends and/or Memory Care Dating Games. You know–the usual.) To write my articles, I use my experiences, the experiences of others and various other resources including but not limited to the wild wild web, the Encyclopedia Britannica (what? you didn’t buy the extended library collection of 1989?) and/or The Bible. (Kidding. But maybe not.) That said – my advice doesn’t come with any guarantees. By visiting this site, you’re essentially signing a contract that says that you understand that I make no guarantees, and you won’t try to sue me or report me to the Obama Administration or my mother. Because that? Would be awkward.
And by the way…we should probably give a group nod to the fact that I am not a licensed psychologist or health care professional, and my services don’t replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals. (Though I do own an impressive brown leather couch and stacks of outdated magazines, thankyouverymuch.) With that comes the standard eye-glaze inducing disclaimer that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of the discussions and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series, and my comments about the outcome are expressions of (my very personal) opinion only. I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to point you in the right direction, and I’ll do everything in my power to help.
AFFILIATE LINKS DISCLAIMER
Guess what? If you click on a link that I’ve provided, it might be a link to someone who will give me a commission if you buy something from their site. That means that I might get paid if you click on that link. And the reason why I’m telling you this is because I want to be upfront with you, and because it’s illegal not to. (So, you know, right side of the law and all.) That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good causes: Things like reinvesting in this business to bring you even better resources, and quite possibly at least one trip to the Ft. Worth Fat Stock Show & Rodeo. Because who doesn’t want to see fat stock?
We love our products, and we hope you do, too. That said, sometimes we might slip up, and sometimes, errors happen. Things like pricing or merchandise descriptions get mixed up, and then we look bad. While that stinks, what’s most important to us is that you’re happy. So while we can’t guarantee that all information on the site is always 100% accurate at any given time, if you do notice a mistake? Please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know. Since we can’t guarantee the products for your particular circumstances or purposes, nor the color, size, etc., we can guarantee that we’ll give you the best customer service we can to remedy the situation. Damn straight.
