DISCLAIMER and DISCLOSURE:
TYPE OF VENUE:
The Pippin Pals are Hero Helpers! books and this website are not manuals, nor professional publications in respect to medical advice. They are and should be considered kid-friendly tools to aid in the understanding of things related to a global pandemic. All pandemic and health-related content is supplementary in nature and based upon information put forth by the CDC, health experts and various professional resources, all of which is available to the general public through television, the internet, printed media and other sources, and not based on the personal opinion of the author.
All links to outside sources are compiled here to serve as a convenient hub of pandemic-related information available elsewhere. Inclusion of any link through this site is not an endorsement and recommendation of its content or other content it leads to once leaving this site.
Any information gleaned through this site or the Pippin Pals are Hero Helpers! books, if put into practice, is at your own discretion. These basic points are explained in more detail elsewhere in this document should you want to look further…
How you perceive the information put forth anywhere on this site is up to you; you may understand or misunderstand anything. That is outside my control. You can choose to disregard it—it’s 100% up to you; I am not responsible for what you do or don’t do with it. Within this “Disclaimer & Disclosure” document, specific aspects of this are explained in more detail. I encourage you to read them 🙂
In coming across information, whether online or off, when I feel something is worth our time to discuss or for you to be aware of, I will also share with you the opinions, perception, knowledge and wisdom of others. My sharing of others’ information or statements does not affirm that I agree with, condone or am responsible for that information.
It is important to note that English is the only language I speak and fully understand. I can only suggest using Google Translate or another online translator if you prefer, but there is no guarantee the translation will be accurate.
