Terms of Use and Disclosure Policy

Platform and general terms:

Hef's Bridge Blog is hosted by the Blogspot platform and will fully abide to the Blogger terms of service.
All users are personally responsible for their comment and behavior. This bridge is created out of passion for bridge, and will not allow for discriminatory or other offensive acts.
Hef's Bridge Blog will not sell or rent any information about users, except if required to do so for compliance with any legitimate legal request - warrants, court orders, subpoena. Currently, Hef's Bridge Blog does not explicitly collect ANY user information except for the default information retrieved by the Blogspot platform and traffic indicators. 

Hef's Bridge Attic affiliation and terms:

Hef's Bridge Attic is an online store that has an affiliate relationship with Amazon.com and will fully abide to the Amazon.com Conditions of Use. Please read Amazon's Privacy Notice that fully describes the flow of personal information through any Amazon affiliate and Hef's Bridge Attic.

The products included in Hef's Bridge Attic are 100% managed by Amazon.com - this includes prices, characteristics, delivery, payment and security, all other respective rights. Hef's Bridge Attic can not and will not interfere with any of those processes. All purchases are made directly from the Amazon.com website, not from Hef's Bridge Attic. All store logos and other rights are the property of Amazon.com

When a visitor purchases an item from Amazon.com via Hef's Bridge Blog, I receive a small commission. I will invest this commission in bridge books for reviews and prizes to the readers. 

From Amazon's excellent products I've selected and categorized the most relevant ones:

- Books I've read and considered meaningful/interesting/useful
- Books I would like to read and review for the blog's visitors
- Other products I personally trust

These products are only recommendations made out of my bridge playing and reading experience. I take no other responsibility other than "Yes, I've read it or used it / No, I haven't read it but I think it's worth it"

Text or image links to selected books or other products available at Amazon.com will appear in blog posts and will be featured in this blog's sidebar.


Currently no marketing e-mail is sent to visitors of this blog.
Any other business or commercial relationship (such as paid blogs, commercials, etc.) will be clearly marked as such on the blog.
