Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

Privacy Policy

Stephen Coombes and PreparedCopy.com offer a free emailed newsletter and other free content. Should you choose to voluntarily sign up for it, you can expect to receive email directly from us with great articles and possibly even an occasional promotion.

That said, I'm not in the business of selling email addresses or even renting them out. I’m definitely not going to give your information away voluntarily. In fact, I’ll go so far as to say I won’t even give your private information to a dark suited pair of guys in sunglasses with FBI badges unless they come toting a signed warrant.

So what kind of information is collected at PreparedCopy.com?

Just the usual built-in analytics from our service provider and Google Analytics which tell us stuff like how you found us (so I can improve SEO) and basic details to help us improve your browsing experience like type of browser, speed of connection, etc.

Since I may at some point enable advertising on this website or remarketing to those who have visited, I'd like you to know the type of information Google says it collects when you visit (yeah, I know, boring lawyer details but in a day and age when the NSA tries to monitor anything and everything online without telling you, at least here you know what you're overtly dealing with):

  • Prepared Copy may use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online.
  • Third-party vendors, including Google, may show ads from Prepared Copy on sites across the Internet.
  • Prepared Copy and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to your website.
  • Prepared Copy and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report back to me details like ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to this website.

Naturally, I also collect any information you voluntarily submit via the Contact page, email newsletter sign up form, or any purchase or request for free information you might choose to make on our site. How else would you get what you asked for?

Terms of Use

Stephen Coombes and PreparedCopy.com are in the business of delivering awesome copy and improved sales to marketers of emergency preparedness and survival supplies.

On my website, blog and other writings you may find links to stuff you can buy or ideas you can use. In fact, I certainly hope you do.

However, I’m not a doctor, lawyer, accountant or other financial professional. I don’t claim to know the future (other than that revealed in the Bible), so don’t come crying to me if I make a prediction that fails to come to pass. You’ve been warned.

The truth is, I can be a rather opinionated sort of fellow... but that doesn’t mean I know everything. So any information you use from this site you agree to use at your own risk.

Furthermore, any purchase you make from this site or as a result of something you read on this site should be based on your own sound research and consulting with the appropriate experts.

It’s my goal to only present sound ideas and products. Ethically speaking, I wouldn’t allow any form of financial gain to cause me to knowingly misrepresent something. But you can assume anything you might buy from this site or purchase from a link from this site has some financial or other motivation for me to make the product, service or link available.

Finally, all content on PreparedCopy.com is the sole copyright of Stephen Coombes unless otherwise stated. All rights are reserved. But if you’d like to re-use one of my articles (that isn't noted as copyrighted by someone else) be my guest - just be sure to include my byline and a link back to this site like this:

Oh, and please do me the courtesy of letting me know how you used it by sending me a note through my Contact page along with a link to where you used it.
