In layman's terms, the license says that you can take TiddlyWiki and do anything you want with it without any license fee payment or other legal obligation to the creators of TiddlyWiki or anyone else. The quid pro quo is that there is no warranty or guarantee with open source projects like TiddlyWiki. You can't sue the contributors to TiddlyWiki for any loss or damage due to the use of TiddlyWiki: even if your data is lost due to a tragic chain of circumstances that involves TiddlyWiki.

You are respectfully requested that to make an attribution to the project, but there's no obligation to do so.

For the avoidance of doubt, any information that you choose to store within your own copy of TiddlyWiki remains yours; using TiddlyWiki to publish content doesn't change whatever rights you may have to that content.
