Questions of Copyright

All content material on JeffGinger.com and subsidiary web sites should be unique and original, or open source publicly available material. Citations should be given to any material referenced or used as a supporting agent for a publication. Stipulations below:

Site Design and Layout

Web site designs for JeffGinger.com and JeffGinger.com Subsidiaries should fall under one of two categories:

  1. Completely original graphic content and layout design
  2. Hybrid graphic content and design based off of SiteStudio templates provided as a service by my previous web host, Infinology. I do not hold the copyright to these graphics or design templates, nor do I take credit for their creation or ownership. Many of these sites can be identified at http://jag-wire.net/web/hybrid.html. Other websites may rely on remixing of graphics, layout frameworks and code assets available under open source or similar licensing, as indicated on a per-page basis.

Pictures and Photography

Photographs on JAG85.com Pictures and in the Vibes Photography Portfolio are unique and original and belong to myself or other individuals who have given me explicit written permission for their public use.

Other photos in use on JeffGinger.com and subsidiary websites may be stock, public domain or defensible under fair use. If you have any comments, questions, or complaints about picture materials or site designs please let me know immediately so I can resolve the issue in a timely manner.

Code and Scripting

Any and all HTML (or CSS, XHTML, javascript, etc...) code is open for unlimited use, unless otherwise noted by copyright indicated in the file. For instance, Javascript that someone else wrote that I am using on my site falls under their terms and conditions.

Accountability and Responsibility

Jeff Ginger should be held accountable for content, design, organization, and management of JeffGinger.com and related subsidiaries. Some other individuals may contribute to content, photographs, or other minor site materials, but Jeff should be held primarily responsible for everything here.

JeffGinger.com Non-Subsidiaries and Exemptions

Any websites included in folders with the root JeffGinger.com are formally considered subsidiaries unless one or both of the following conditions are satisfied:

  1. Said websites or folders in question are specifically and publicly designated as exempt from the JAG85.com terms of service and use
  2. The website or content is designated as an Unofficial Production

Formal Designation

If a web page is marked as a JeffGinger.com Subsidiary then it is considered a part of the official website and thus falls under all conditions of copyright above. These websites, however, may be managed or accessed by individuals other than myself and thus may require special permissions or conditions for usage of material.

As of October of 2013 JeffGinger.com Subsidiary domains include:

Unofficial Productions

These consist of websites designed and occasionally updated by myself but run by other individuals or organizations. Many of them will be located on other servers and should be considered to have their own set of copyright and privacy policies. They are not subject to any of the rules, ramifications or specifications detailed above. At this time there are no unofficial subsidiaries.
