In contrast with the Privacy Policy which is meant to protect you and your information, this page of Terms and Conditions is meant to protect me and the website. Besides that I think it’s important to flesh out the basic ideals of use here on Abroad American.

Overall, I want everyone to be respectful and contribute positively to the website, if you don’t behave in a way that I consider to be up to standard, I can and will revoke your access to the Site. The rest of this page below is just legalese to cover my butt. So, sift through the legalese below, and if you have any questions about this policy, use the email provided in the last section of the page.
