Anything I say on ellegracedeveson.com will always be honest, wether that’s product reviews, my life in general or anything in between. The products I review I have purchased myself (unless I’ve stated otherwise) that I’ve genuinely come to love and continuously enjoyed using. Personally, I believe honesty is the best policy and I will stand by that when reviewing products and speaking about my life.
PR SAMPLES / GIFTED ITEMS
I promise to give my honest review if I am sent any gifts or PR samples as I’d never lie to you guys despite being sent nice gifts. I will always state if I’ve been sent a product etc, for reviewing purposes during each post. (please know not all products which I may get sent are guaranteed to be mentioned on my blog or reviews unless I’ve agreed with the brand beforehand. Though, I am always mentioning products on my Instagram & other social media pages)
SPONSORED WORK / COLLABORATION POSTS
wether it be on my blog or on any of my social media’s I will always state and mark any sponsored or collocation posts. This will be stated at the beginning or end of the post. Like I say, i believe honesty is the best policy so I won’t ever not tell you if a post is sponsored or not, it will be clearly marked; #AD or #SPON
All images are my OWN! unless I state otherwise and then I will always give credit to that person. I will always provide the links to the website that owns the picture or to the personal owner of the image.
If you’d like to use any of my images, please just ask for my permission first or always credit me.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO I COLLECT FROM THE PEOPLE THAT VISIT MY BLOG AND WHY?
i collect your name or username, email address, IP address and website URL. I also collect non identifiable data such as browser information in order for me to see my website statistics.
HOW DO I PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
I wouldn’t ever ask for your credit card details or payment details. Your personal information which you give to my blog is contained behind secured networks which is only available to be seen by a very limited number of people who have access rights to such systems but they are also required to keep this information confidential. Furthermore, all information given to my blog is secured via “secure socket layer (SSL) technology”. Which basically means I do everything I can to keep whatever information you’ve submitted to me, safe and secure.
You can always choose to be notified for follow-up comments by email and be notified if a new post has gone live when you leave a comment. Both of these things are optional and you can choose wether you do them or not.
I continuously back up my website including all the comments and personal data attached.
DO I SHARE DATA?
I DON’T sell, trade or transfer any of your personally identifiable information to ANY outside parties. The only time I would do so, is if it was required by law or for giveaways in which I collaborated with a brand (for example; when choosing a winner, I will need to pass on the winners information to the brand in order for you to claim your prize). By entering any giveaways or entering such information, you will be agreeing to the terms, therefore if you don’t like what your reading, please don’t enter. If I’m ever collaborating with a brand, I will always state that, like I’ve mentioned above.
HOW LONG DO I RETAIN YOUR DATA?
If a visitor leaves a comment, the comment and it’s metadata will be there indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For those of you that register on my blog (if any of you) the personal information provided is in your user profile. All of you users can see, edit and delete your personal information at all times expect your user names, that’s for keeps.
MY CONTACT INFORMATION
if you want to contact me for any further information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – I can talk can privacy concerns or if you just want to clarify any of the information I’ve written above. Thankyou.
