Disclaimer

Here is the fine print that my lawyer says I should have:

This site is based on my opinion. Any factual information is true to the best of my knowledge, but I make no guarantees or warranties as to the accuracy or reliability of the information contained herein. This site is to be used for informational purposes only.

Levi Bloom (Coach Levi) and Coal Hill Media Group, LLC will not be held liable for any loss, damage, injury or wrongful death caused by your reliance on information obtained through this website.

My Advice

Any advice I post on this website is simply my opinion about what I would do in certain circumstances. It is not personalized advice for a specific individual, and it should not, under any circumstance, be used in place of advice from a qualified medical professional.

Health and Medicine

Keep this in mind – I am not a lawyer, doctor, certified trainer, physical therapist, or Registered Dietitian. I’m just your average Joe (except that my name is Levi) with a website. While I can advise you from my personal experience and tell you what I think is right, you should always consult a professional before making changes to your diet, exercise routine, or lifestyle.

For this reason, I do not provide any sort of medical advice.

Advertisements

To defer some of the costs of running this website, you may see banner advertisements, and sometimes I have included “affiliate links” when writing about a product I like. I may earn a small commission on any sales if someone clicks through my link. Read more about this in the Advertising Disclosure section.

Dangers and Risks

Coach Levi is a trained professional (kind of), so Don’t try this at home!

 

Terms of Use

By browsing this website you agree to the terms of use outlined below:

Copyright Notice

Know that all content on this website, including, but not limited to, text and images, is copyrighted. You may not under any circumstances republish my content in whole or in part on your site without prior approval.

You may, however, reference any of my articles provided that you only cite a short excerpt and provide a link back to the page on my site. You cannot claim ownership over the content nor can you claim that I endorse your site in any way.

I understand if you like this website and want to share the content with more people, but I put a lot of work into providing this information for free, so please don’t steal!

RSS and Syndication

The RSS feed is provided as a free service for you to stay up-to-date on our content and is offered for personal use only. You may not include it as part of an automated blog, or use it in any way that displays my content on a third-party website.

Comment Policy

Comments posted on this site are copyright their respective author. I cannot be held liable for third party content.

By commenting you are granting CoachLevi.com a non-exclusive license to use your provided content as desired.

Commenting is a privilege and your comment may or may not be displayed. Spam, excessive links, lack of meaningful content, and irrelevance are some of the reasons your comment may be removed from this website.

Comments are also removed as required by law, and I usually delete any defamatory or libelous comments as soon as I see them, to avoid the hassle.

Resolution

All violations will be handled at the fullest extent of the law. If you violate copyright laws, you may have your website shut down, your profits forfeited, and just plain bad karma following you around.

Email Policy

I have provided an “Email Me” link so that you may contact me with questions or feedback about my website. You may also write in with racing, training, and/or nutrition questions and I will answer them on the website if time permits.

However, I do not always have time to answer, so I cannot guarantee that I will have a chance to respond.

Also, there are certain questions I just cannot answer. First, medical questions. Those should be addressed to your doctor or another qualified professional. Second, customer service for other companies. Just because I write a review of an energy bar does not mean that I can help you with order tracking or provide you with specific information about the manufacture of that bar. For specific questions like that, contact the company, not me. Third, extensive personalized questions. If you are looking for a personalized diet and training plan with consultation, you will have to hire your own coach.

All rights are reserved and these terms may be changed at any time at my discretion, without notice.

Affiliate Links

To defer some of the costs of running this website, sometimes I have included “affiliate links” when writing about a product I like. I may earn a small commission on any sales if someone clicks through my link. It does not harm you in any way; it simply helps me, and allows me to spend the time necessary to provide quality content on this website.

I think I deserve to make a few dollars here and there after putting the work into this website. In no circumstance would I point you to a product I would not use myself, only to make some money.

Anything I promote I either use myself and/or recommend for certain people. But if advertisements make you uncomfortable, you are free to leave (or you can just avoid clicking on links or looking at ads!)

 

Privacy Policy

The privacy of all the visitors to CoachLevi.com is very important.

Personal Information
In most cases, we do not collect personal information at all. We only collect your name and email address if you give it to us, and we will not give it away. You can unsubscribe from all our emails with one click, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted emails.

We will not spam you either.

Cookies and Web Beacons
CoachLevi.com does use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include “remembering” your information for the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums, without hassle.

We also use third party advertisements on CoachLevi.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Pennsylvania bike shop ads to someone in Pennsylvania, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing mountain biking ads to someone who frequents other mountain biking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Tracking and Analytics
We have implemented certain Google Analytics Display Advertising Features, currently including Demographics and Interest Reports. This information, gained primarily through anonymous identifiers, is used to better serve site visitors (for example, providing more articles suited for younger or older visitors.) You may opt out of this by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on (download here.)
