Taylor & Francis Green OA Self-Archiving
just fine for OA needs:

*3.2 Retained rights*

*In assigning Taylor & Francis or the journal proprietor copyright, or
granting an exclusive license to publish, you retain:*

*the right to post your Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM)
<http://www.niso.org/publications/rp/RP-8-2008.pdf>  on your departmental
or personal website at any point after publication of your article.*

As for the later hedge:

Embargoes apply… if you are posting the AAM to an institutional or subject

Ignore this completely.

The author’s institutional repository is the author’s institutional
website. Period.

Authors and institutions: Please don’t prolong the needless, empty,
pseudo-legal nonsense and subterfuge that has been holding back OA for
decades. Ignore this phoney, groundless distinction and self-archive your
final draft in your IR immediately upon acceptance (as HEFCE/REF2020 & EC
Horizon2020  require), and *make it OA immediately.*

Your Wizened & Weary Archivangelist
