Disclaimer/privacy

Who we are

Our website address is: http://clairescosylittlehome.co.uk.

Claires Cosy Little Home operates an open & honest policy across this blog. From May 2019 I will be marking posts with an * in the title so to make readers aware of a collaboration.

When products have been sent for review/advertisement purposes, I will always endeavour to make readers aware of this with the marked * & also with a statement at the bottom of the post. These products have usually either been discountined or sent to me as a sample for the purposes of the post.

Occasionally, some of my links on this blog & Instagram are affiliate marketing which means that I get a small commission from each product sold (although this does not affect the sale price) however these are all items I have either bought & used myself personally, heard positive things about or offer good value to my readers.

From time to time, I will also publish sponsored posts. These might be in a form of a product or brand promotion, and will always be marked with * & also with a “sponsored post” disclaimer at the bottom of the post. These posts are written by myself & I will only accept collaborations that I believe are fitting and in keeping with the tone and content of my blog. In doing this, I reserve the right to be honest & authentic. All opinions expressed in this blog post are my own & 100% genuine.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

Who we share your data with

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Where we send your data

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

comments

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

from time to time I will review these policy/disclaimers if anyone has a complaint or question about anything published on my blog please contact me.

Thank you Claire
