Whether you’re accessing this site on a computer or a mobile device, it is still worth your time to read and understand the terms and conditions I formulated for this website.
Terms and conditions (“Terms”) are a set of legal terms I define as a website owner. These set forth the details of the policies and procedures governing your activities as a website visitor on this website and the relationship we build. This way, I could protect myself from potential legal exposure.
THE WEBSITE OWNER

issabacsa.com serves as a portfolio website and informational blog.
This website offers visitors a glimpse of my works and writings plus an informational blog about health and wellness, and other topics I usually write about. By accessing or using this website, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

As a portfolio, in order to receive my writing service, you must be at least 20 years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right, and freedom to enter into these Terms as a binding agreement. You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.
NO UNLAWFUL OR PROHIBITED USE
The Blog section provides information to the general public. Effort has been done to make each blog post accurate and factual, unless the blog post is fictional in nature. An effort has been done to make each blog post adhere to my values of truth, kindness, and simplicity.
Although writing comments is disabled, as a user, you agree not to publish, post, or transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, or racially or ethnically derogatory content, or any content expressing hate towards any person or groups of persons due to race, religion, color, creed, nationality, or sexual identification.

Any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, or any other form of illegal solicitation will be blacklisted.
I offer e-books that are available online for perusal by anyone. It is assumed that a web visitor will access a copy for himself. However, it is discouraged to share the e-book with anyone or to any device. Instead, I encourage users to request another copy for another person.
Clicking the “Donate” button, if present, is optional. Feel free to donate any amount via PayPal to cr***************************@gm***.com.
There is a button that allows you to request a written service quotation or Statement of Work (SOW) which sends an email.
