This website accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
This website abides by word of mouth marketing standards and we believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
I am at times compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics, and this will be clearly identified in the blog post. Even though I may receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products regardless of compensation received. The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This website does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
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 visit our login page, 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.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize 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.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
This website uses security measures and filters to protect user data.
To align with my value of full disclosure, please know that from time to time I will recommend a product or service that I have used and loved. Some links may be affiliate links and not be specifically marked as so, and it would be reasonable to assume that if you click through to buy a product, it is likely an affiliate link. When you purchase through one of the links on my page, I get a small percentage of the sale. It does not cost you any extra to purchase through affiliate links. Thank you for purchasing through the links and supporting Simplify Create Inspire.
Please know that I will never recommend or receive compensation for promoting anything I don’t love or wouldn’t use myself. Occasionally I may review a product at the request of a brand, however I assure that I will fairly review the product and only give you my own opinion on it, whether that be positive or negative.
If you see a product that you would like, please consider purchasing it through my page. Your support is appreciated.
