Hold Harmless

All the information provided on lilacsandavocados.com is for general information and entertainment purposes only and is the expressed opinion of myself, Megan Herrmann (‘Lilacs and Avocados‘) and not others. This includes (but is not limited to) my membership organizations and/or employers.

I am not providing any medical, legal, professional … gynecological, astrological, paleontological, philosophical, bacteriological, mineralogical, criminological or dermatological advice. You are taking all the provided information at your own risk. Please contact your local hospital, jurist, emergency service, bar association, phone book, Google or your mother to find or obtain a referral to a competent professional.

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. I’m only human. Forgive me.

Although I try to keep lilacsandavocados.com running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, access to the site may be temporarily or permanently suspended and without notice at my own discretion, due to possible updates or technical issues beyond my control (such as the internet rebelling against the world and throwing it into complete chaos in apocalyptic times.) I will not be liable if for any reason the website is unavailable at any time or for any period of time. I will try to get the website back online as soon as possible. Or as soon as the apocalypse ends and the world returns to business as usual.


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 Valentines and/or Christmas Cards (unless you ask me to and I really like you) 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 commenters.


Reserve Rights

I, Megan Herrmann from Lilacs and Avocados, reserve the right to change the focus of the blog, to shut it down, sell it, and/or change the terms of use at my own discretion.

I also reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to lilacsandavocados.com without notice due to: comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam, comments including profanity, comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive, or comments that attack a group or person individually. I do accept virtual kisses, flowers and encouraging pats on the back.


Advertisers and Sponsors

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 Lilacs and Avocados.

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 like the color purple (usually in any of it’s forms), doesn’t have to mean you will like it too!

To help the website expand, to cover costs of running the site, and for me to be able to fly to Bora Bora three times a year (YEAH I WISH!), some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a (mind you – very) small commission on any purchases made when visiting Amazon 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 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, and Instagram, 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, blog posts, columns or up-and-coming books. Big compliments will be painted on a tile and put up in my custom bathroom in a future home.


Thank you so much for visiting my website and don’t forget to enjoy yourself!

Megan Herrmann
