Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

June 24, 2006 (I backdated the post date so it wouldn't pop to the top of the feed.)


Parent Hacks is owned, operated and edited by Asha Dornfest. By accessing, using, and/or submitting material to Parent Hacks, you agree to abide by these terms of service, including any modifications that may occur to the terms in the future. All modifications will be posted in this document.

All content published on Parent Hacks becomes the property of Parent Hacks.

Parent Hacks content is available under a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial license. As such, anyone can reproduce Parent Hacks content provided that the reproduction is for personal use and is non-commercial in nature, and the reproduction acknowledges Parent Hacks as the original source of the material either by including a link back to the original Parent Hacks post, or by including the following notice:

Content originally appeared on Parent Hacks (), and is made available through a Creative Commons Attribution Noncommercial license (/creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/).

For more information about the Creative Commons license, read the Creative Commons FAQ. If you're in doubt about fair use, please contact the Parent Hacks editor at hacks@parenthacks.com.

If a reader's submission is featured in a derivative work produced by Parent Hacks, Parent Hacks will, in good faith, attribute the submission to the reader (as the reader's name appears on Parent Hacks) and attempt to contact the reader to let him or her know, but is not obligated to do so.

While Parent Hacks publishes what we consider to be safe tips and suggestions, all Parent Hacks content is made available on an as-is basis, with no warrantees expressed or implied. As such, readers use any advice found on Parent Hacks at their own risk.

All content published on Parent Hacks is subject to editing or deletion. Opinions expressed on Parent Hacks are not necessarily those of the editor.

Parent Hacks reserves the right to restrict site access for any reason. Examples of inappropriate use include abusive behavior and comment and/or trackback spam.


Parent Hacks will not sell, distribute, or reveal readers' email addresses or other personal information without their consent. Readers who subscribe to Parent Hacks email updates (provided by a third-party service called Feedblitz) are also subject to the Feedblitz privacy policy.

In general, when publishing reader-submitted material, Parent Hacks will identify the reader by first name only and, if the reader desires, a link to the reader's blog or website. If the reader is already in the public sphere (that is, the reader is well-known or has a blog or website that reveals the reader's identity), Parent Hacks may publish the reader's full name. If, in the submission, the reader requests first name-only identification, anonymity, or the use of a pseudonym, Parent Hacks will respect the request.
