From the 25th May 2018, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced across Europe, including the UK. The law aims to give citizens more control over their data and to create a uniformity of rules to enforce across the continent.

I use cookies throughout numerous pages to ensure that I am able to track and report how my visitors use my website. Google has the ability to share this information with third parties if it is required to by law, or other third parties contracted to process its data. To ensure I have your safety at heart, I have made sure everyones information is as secure as possible. This has been done by reassuring you where your comments are going to, who is foreseeing the analytics and who has control over the information I collect.

Comments

Every comment that gets written, is then approved by myself before it gets published onto the post. If I feel as if the comment is going against safety regulations, or simply disrespectful towards other parties then these will be deleted instantly and possibly taken further. As of now comments can be made from a Google account or WordPress.

Analytics

Analytics is the route to having the ability to foresee how my website is growing. This can be done by seeing my daily views, where the views are being made from (eg, England) and how people are being directed to particular posts. For example, this may be from Twitter, facebook or even a link from a certain company’s website that I have partnered with for a particular brand deal.

Subscriptions

By subscribing to my blog, this means that you are able to be notified when any upcoming posts have been published, through your email. By doing so you are giving permission for myself to be aware that you have officially subscribed. This alert is sent through my emails and I am notified of who it is. I hold these emails for managing purposes only, eg, knowing who is subscribed and who isn’t. These are not passed onto any other person, unless you have gone against strict guidelines: Abuse of myself or other members, hacking into any source, abusing the use of visiting my blog and or sending any form of racism/ abuse to myself or other users. I then may have to pursue other advice, which you will be notified of before any action is taken. This is to make sure everyone on the page is kept safe and happy. Other than that, I assure you the emails I am provided with, from yourselves are kept strictly between us both.

Cookies  –

Although most people would associate cookies as being the scariest thing when it comes to the internet, they are simply just small pieces of text files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive, of course only with your permission! This then enables the site’s system to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. These are kept secure, and will not be accessible to anyone apart from myself. I have this put into place, to ensure that you have the best possible outcome when coming to my blog. With this, I can remember your ‘preferences’ and later make your viewings suited more towards what you like and enjoy reading!

Copyright & working with brands –

The content I create is done by myself. Unless, noted otherwise. These posts are copyrighted by myself, and if there is any form of stealing or selling without my permission then I am able to take legal action if necessary.

The photos I use are either my own, taken with assistance from family members or friends (will be noted), or are taken from specific brands/websites which will also be noted on posting. These are taken with permission, and are only used for advertising purposes.

If I am working with a certain brand, then I ensure you I only work along side them if I am 100% positive at least a certain majority of my audience will be happy with seeing the products being featured. If I feel this will prevent my viewers from enjoying their time on my blog, or it is beyond my particular preferences then they will simply not be featured. Brands either have the choice of sending me products free of charge, paying me with a certain amount of money or I will purchase the products with my own money. Any of which, will be mentioned in the post and if there are affiliate links – they will too be mentioned which ensures everyone, you are aware of what is being sold to you. I may make a small fee, if there are affiliate links posted. This is at no (extra) cost to you, and you have the choice to not click on the links provided if you wish, and instead you can search up the certain products by your own accord.

As of yet, I am part of no affiliate link connection. Meaning I only will make a small fee if and when brands decide to give me this option. Other than that, I purchase products to review with my own money (unless mentioned otherwise). I am in no partnership with other blogs or websites and only do the occasionally partnered post. So, every time you click onto my page, I am making no cash sum from it and simply create my content to provide you with some sort of escape route from reality and a makeup, lifestyle and inspirational world created by myself!
