Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how www.lensandfeather.com uses and protects any information that you give when you use this website. You will not be spammed in any way and I will absolutely not sell or disclose your information to any other companies.

I am committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should I ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Cookies

There are 3rd-party applications, however, like Google Analytics that would collect cookie and usage data. This basically means that Google will analyze visitor behavior in an anonymousform in order to track, examine and compile statistical reports on the traffic, activity and visits in this website.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

My website uses traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps me analyze data about web page traffic and improve lensandfeather.com in order to tailor it to my readers’s needs. I only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help me provide you with a better website by enabling me to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Controlling your personal information

I will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless I have your permission or are required by law to do so. I may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which I think you may find interesting if you tell me that you wish this to happen.

If you believe that any information I am holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please email me as soon as possible at the above address. I will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

Advertisers & sponsors disclosure

This blog is also open to forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and other forms of compensation and/or projects. But even though this blog is open to advertising, I will never recommend and write about products or brands that I don’t personally use nor believe in. I will always disclose whether I will be receiving any commissions or products for free, or if a trip was sponsored or not.

But I am definitely not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues and NOT with me. Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

What’s more is that some of the links on the website are affiliate or referral links. At no additional cost to you, I will earn a small percentage of the sale if you make a purchase through my affiliate link, and I may earn a bonus from your registration through my referral link.

Important: These Affiliate links are trusted resources I use myself and I recommend them and they help me to keep my website running and up to date. Thank you for your support and trust. Should you have any doubt, concern or question about the topic, feel free to contact me.
