Notes and Legal

Table of Contents

This website's default language is British English.

However, I was not born as an English speaker. I am a bilingual person that learns and uses English as a second language, mainly online.

As much as I tried to write English in a non-chaotic and understandable manner, with less errors as possible, I cannot guarantee that there will be no errors at all. If there is one, it is highly recommended for anyone to contact me and allow me to fix it. I might have missed and not aware that I have made a mistake.
