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 exactly the 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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

ANALYTICS

We collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the internet or allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of web pages to you and to measure traffic on the site.

On this site we use a plugin called Jetpack and externally we use Google Analytics to measure analytics, (See Google Analytics privacy policy here). These analytics offer information such as which pages and sections on the website are the most popular and which device people are using to browse, which in turn allows me to offer relevant, device appropriate content. I can also see how users are finding my website which helps me target my marketing.

AFFILIATE LINKS

This site includes links to websites I recommend or work with on a collaborative basis and provides access to products and services offered by third parties whose privacy policies I do not control. Some of the links I provide are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item connected to that link, I will receive a small affiliate commission at no cost you. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through this site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting or the provider of such products or services.

I have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that this website and its owner shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.

GIVEAWAYS AND COMPETITIONS

This site  may run competitions and giveaways. In order to facilitate these, entrants will be required to supply certain information which includes, but is not limited to; full name, email address, and full postal address.

Full postal addresses of winners will be shared with brands where necessary to ensure delivery of your prize. As such, supplying of full postal address is necessary to enter any competitions on this site. Your details will never be shared with anyone other than the brand/s supplying the prize/s for the giveaway or competition which you enter. I will take steps to ensure that prize suppliers are GDPR compliant and do not use your details for any other reason than to provide your prize, but I cannot be held responsible for any misuse of data by any third-party.

Email addresses supplied during the entering of competitions and giveaways are used solely for the purposes of contacting winners. Your details are never added to mailing lists or shared with any third parties, unless necessary.

The sharing of full name, email address, and full postal address is required in order to facilitate competitions and giveaways, and therefore the collection of this information is granted legally under the GDPR base of ‘contract’. As such, if you are not happy to share your full name, email address and full postal address I will be unable to continue with your competition or giveaway entrance.

You may request to have your details removed from my database and competition software any time after the competition or giveaway has ended by contacting me at jane@practicallyperfectmums.co.uk
