Disclaimer
This is an unofficial fan appreciation site, created and maintained by a simple fan. I am in no way associated with The Vampire Diaries,
or anyone associated with  the show.

I do not intend to infringe on anyone’s copyrights, just display my own appreciation of
The Vampire Diaries, and provide other fans
with a place to come for accurate and up-to-date information.  Anything found on this site, including any images, are items that I’ve
put into a format for this site, but the images, stories, and the characters involved are owned by CW Television Network, Alloy
Entertainment, CBS Television Studios, Outerbanks Entertainment, or Warner Bros. Television,

The images found on this site have been gathered from various resources, most of which are  publicity stills or pictures released
specifically for public consumption.  I do sometimes have to work on the images, whether it’s to cut down to highlight a specific
character/actor or to use an effect for a banner, so please do not take any image without asking for permission.

Last, but certainly not least, if any official representative of
The Vampire Diaries views this site, and feels I’ve done anything
except further publicize and show appreciation for
The Vampire Diaries and you intend to attempt to shut down my site through
Geocities [which is a horror story I've heard several times about several other fan sites], please
contact me first, so you can let me
know how to correct my unintended copyright or other error; thanks in advance for the courtesy.  A great deal ot time and love has
gone into all my sites, and I'd just assume work with you then have to see all that precious time of my life be a big waste.  I personally
believe fan sites like mine are good for your show, providing an outlet for the show's most loyal fans and additional ---free--- publicity
for you.

Endorsements and Commerical links
This is a privately created, owned, and maintained domain, and I do pay for domain space and for the forum, so while there are no
irritating pop-up ads throughout
SolitaryPhoenix, I do include banners to various organizations whose cause I support, or businesses
that have been selected to be included here.  If there is a business ad included, yes, it usually means I am in their affiliate program,
but [ believe me! ], the rare proceeds do not even cover the cost of the web space.   There are banners throughout the sites for a
page I wrote up about spaying and neutering your pets, and keeping them leashed.  I have links to organizations like Planned
Parenthood and the Humane Society on the
About Me links which are on the main pages of all the sites.  The causes and
organizations are those I personally believe in; this does not mean that any of the companies that produce the television shows and
movies, or the actors themselves, or anyone involved with same companies or individuals that are the subject of my sites support or
believe in the same things.  The opinions and endorsements you see throughout the domain are mine, and mine alone, unless
otherwise noted.

Links, in general
SolitaryPhoenix permits other websites to link to our sites, and we include links and banners to other websites here, however, this does
not imply endorsement of products or services on those sites.
