Thanks for stopping by! Here's all of the behind the scenes legal type info that you may or may not want to know. "CS3" refers to the website www.cleansmartsimplestyle.com which is owned and operated by yours truly.
Unless noted as otherwise, the words and photographs published on CS3 are original works and property of CS3, protected immediately upon creation by U.S. Copyright laws. Fair use clauses permit the reproduction of images for certain purposes such as education and commentary/critique. I welcome the use of my images under these guidelines as long as proper credit is given (accompanied by a link to the site of my page where the image was featured), and photographs have been reproduced in a way that neither borrows bandwidth from CS3 nor alters the initial context in which the original image was created.
On the occasion that I feature images or photographs that are not original creations of CS3, every effort is made to follow the guidelines outlined by U.S. Copyright Laws and Fair Use Clauses (as well as proper etiquette for sourcing and image hosting for bandwidth purposes). If you feel that an image has not followed these guidelines, please contact me and I would be more than happy to remove the image in question.
