YourLifEvents Privacy & Disclosure Policy
The privacy of our visitors to YourLifEvents.com is important to us.
At YourLifEvents.com, we recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit YourLifEvents.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on YourLifEvents.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
The Federal Trade Commission (F.T.C.) requires that we disclose any relationship I have between a product manufacturer and/or service provider when I write about a product or service.
Here are the guidelines we operate under at YourLifEvents.com:
We are never paid by anyone, individual or company to do a review on their behalf. We have never accepted money to review a product or service, but if we did it would be with the understanding that the review would be an honest and authentic review – good or bad. We invest our own time to review and test products. We pay out of our own pocket the cost to produce any videos, pictures or blog posts we make about products.
We don’t always pay for the products we test. Sometimes they are sent to us by the manufacturer. Rarely do we request a product. In almost all cases, the manufacturer approaches us first via email.
If we feel it’s a product our readers might get benefit from, and it fits into our business model, then we request they send us the product.
It is seldom that we return the products after we test them. We are two individuals and so don’t have the staff or the resources to process the return of the products. That is made clear to manufacturers when we agree to a product test/review
If we create a link from my website to a product in a review we have undertaken, sometimes we may get paid a commission if you purchase the product or service. Other times we may not get paid, such are the intricacies of online tracking of purchases, but it is always my intention to place customers with suppliers and to be paid for doing so .
These are good rules and practices in today’s digital world, rules we fully endorse and adhere to in a clear and transparent manner. We see it as important for you as a consumer to understand the relationship, if any, between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer or service provider. If you don’t see a disclosure policy as part of a review of a product, that reviewer could well be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
Thank you for taking the time to read our affiliate trading disclosure. Enjoy your time @ YourLifEvents.
