Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you what personally identifiable information we may collect and how it may be used.

Spam & Email 

If you enter your email to receive a freebie from rhythmsandgraceblog.com, that is giving the company the right to send emails and/or other information to you. You will likely begin to receive emails from me. These emails are not spam. 

You have the right to unsubscribe or opt out at any time. Every email I send has an “unsubscribe” option at the bottom, thus I am abiding by the law to include a link for this within any information e-mailed to you.

Reader Contact Information:

Renee, writer and owner of rhythmsandgraceblog.com, will never share personal information such as name or email address. Anonymous information is tracked to gather information to improve site performance and to help us track site analytics. No personal information is collected except for what is voluntarily provided by the user. Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. If you provide your email address to receive a freebie or offer, I will likely begin emailing you – giving your email grants such permission. As required by law, all emails and newsletters from this site allow you to unsubscribe from further mailings.

Affiliate Program Participation

This blog is owned and edited by Renee Cook based upon personal experiences and preferences. The FTC requires full disclosure of relationships I have with brands when writing about a product.

Rhythms + Grace Blog is an ad, affiliate and PR friendly website. Brands and advertisers will never influence the content of blog posts. I carefully select products that I love and use and create all content relevant to the  blog. Sometimes I link to a product or website and may be paid a commission based on the sale of those products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are always my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other compensation. If I receive payment to write a post, it will always be disclosed clearly at the beginning of the post. 

The Website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program – As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Please see my full disclosure for details about what products and services I do and don’t promote. (There is way less legal jargon over there.)

Errors  

Rhythms + Grace Blog is not held responsible for an incorrect link to a product or offer that lapses before a reader has a chance to participate.

Policy Regarding Freebies, Offers, Discounts, etc.

Rhythms + Grace has no control of when or how you will receive any free offers. Any issues regarding the free offer should be addressed directly with the company making said offer. While Rhythms + Grace makes every effort to ensure the offer is still in effect at the time of posting, a company may elect to take the offer down without any warning. Rhythms + Grace has no direct contact with the merchant making the offer and therefore has no responsibility for what is contained in said offer. Participation in these offers is at the sole discretion of the reader and he or she should use personal judgment before participating in any offer.

Comment Policy
