The Boring Stuff (Editorial Policy and Disclaimers)

As with all things, there is a need to mention the “boring stuff”. These form part of our disclaimers in regards to

Whenever we mention “We, Us, Ordinary People or” we are referring to our website and company and/or all of our social media sites, including but not exclusive to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and any other associated accounts.

First things first:

Ordinary People brings you our hand-picked collection of ideas and stories that may be one person’s way of life but another person’s inspiration. This means that all views, opinions and comments expressed are those of the author and each writer takes responsibility for the opinions within their own articles. While we reserve the right to edit, each author is responsible for the information contained within their stories.

The majority of our content is produced originally. If it is from another source (ie. another blog), we have received the blogger’s permission and given credit to the source. All content on Ordinary People is not to be amended in any way without written consent from the author. It may not be distributed or duplicated without permission and where approval has been given, clear reference must be given to the author and by way of link to the website. We retain all rights to articles that have been originally written, photographs we have taken and/or artwork produced for (whether paid for or not).

We believe in authenticity and ethically sourcing and presenting our content. This means that any favourable mentions on will be because we genuinely like the story we or our writers are telling. Unless expressly stated, any content we cover is not a guarantee of service or product quality. We are giving our opinions and telling the stories behind the brands and products we write about. In most cases, we have done so based on our own preferences and have not received any payment for and on behalf of the companies or people we feature. If there has been an acceptance of service, samples or payment in any form and of any kind, we will clearly disclose this to you.

If we have been invited to attend an event, food tasting or been invited to try a product by a brand, we will clearly disclose this interaction but we also reserve the right not to cover the product, service or event if we feel that it is unsuitable for our website.
