Policies

This is all the serious stuff. Have a quick read, and then let’s get back to the business of making heads or tails of technology, yes?

Privacy

Your personal information is safe with me, dear reader. I will never ever sell your information to a third party or advertiser: I sure don’t want people spamming my Inbox, and I know you don’t either. I do gather data from everyone who visits my site to learn more about who my audience is, but this information is not shared with outside parties.

Integrity

CarleyK.com occasionally receives vendor/ brand sponsorships for mentioning their products and services.

If I receive monetary payment for a post or review or giveaway, or a product in exchange for a post, review or giveaway, it will be clearly disclosed in compliance with FTC guidelines. If I do write a sponsored post or review it’s because I am genuinely excited about the product or service, and think you will be too. I never take money from brands that I don’t feel my readers would enjoy knowing about, and if I test and dislike any product, I simply will not write about it.

All of the opinions on this blog are my own and no one can make me, or pay me, to write otherwise.

Any products that have been gifted or provided gratis to me for review are always noted in the post, and are only used if they are a good fit for the blog’s content, and if our team tests and likes the product. I only post about things I love— if I don’t like it, I don’t write about it, no matter how lovely the gift might be. I don’t claim to share the views of the companies I receive gifts from.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links mean I receive commission on sales of the products that are linked to in my posts. So if you click on a link and make a purchase from an affiliate site, then I may make a commission from that purchase. Clicking on these links supports this blog and helps me continue to create high quality content for you. If you’re reading about a product or service on my blog, it’s because I genuinely like and recommend it, so click away, and thanks in advance.

Comments

I appreciate each and every comment I get on my website— thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on the things I write about! That said, any comment deemed inappropriate or negative, including general spam, offensive comments or rude language, overtly self-promotional stuff or other items unrelated to the post will be deleted without notice or explanation. Let’s all be kind to each other, okay?

Thanks for sharing

This blog is my heart and soul, and it’s a lot of work to put it all together. I love it when you link to my blog, but I do not love it when I find bits of my articles (or often the whole darn thing!) re-written on your blog and not properly credited. Please properly credit and link to all graphics, headers, blog photos, and writings found on my blog, and I’ll do the same when I link to your work (if I haven’t please bring it to my attention and I will update it ASAP).

Brands

Hey brands! Before you send me pitches, please have a look at my work and determine if your product is a good fit for my blog. This will ensure a successful partnership. Unfortunately, I can’t answer all the pitches I get, but I do read them all, so follow-up emails are not necessary.

If you do feel your brand is a good fit, let’s talk! There are a number of ways we can work together. Please reach out to Danielle Torocsik at ads {at} carleyk {dot} com to discuss.
