Congratulations! You found the boring page. Yay….
Even so, you’re probably here to read the many, wonderful policies I’ve either got to write about or want to write about. Ready?
Here are the policies you can find on this page:
- affiliate and advertising
- health or medical disclaimer
- republished content
- limited liability, governing law, and termination of use
Affiliate and Advertising Disclosure Policy
I do use advertising and affiliate links on this website. Those advertising fees help keep the virtual lights on – and fuel my chocolate addiction. Those links will always be disclosed because it’s just the right thing to do, FTC rules or not. This is what my standard disclosure looks like:
This is me giving y’all a heads up that there’s affiliate ad links in this post. Learn more.
I am an Amazon affiliate, because Prime is a lifesaver. “Kimberly C. Starr is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”
I do product reviews or sponsored posts. While I review items or post affiliate links, I will only endorse products and services that I wholeheartedly believe in and use myself. When it comes to free stuff, I’d rather say “no” to a potential advertiser than accumulate junk or write a review I’ll regret. Sometimes I’m paid for these posts and sometimes I receive free products as compensation.
I do have ads on this blog. It’s just a way to keep the blog finances paid without you having to do anything except burn an an extra calorie scrolling. If you want more sleep-inducing legal stuff to read, here’s what Google has to say about ads.
The views, opinions, and advice on this site are 100% mine. Any product, statistic, claim, or representation of a product or service should always be verified with the manufacturer or service provider.
Health Disclaimer and Disclosures
The stories and health-related information I share on this website are for information only and should not be construed as medical advice. Never substitute these online anecdotes for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always talk to your primary care provider (doctor, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, etc) for specific guidance on your medical and health needs. Never delay treatment or disregard your doc’s advice because of something you read here.
I have no financial interests, investments, or stakes in any institution, practice, test, or any other medically related anything. I do design and make my own line of designer cute compression socks; they are, however, a fashion statement and not a medical device.
If you’ve got a medical emergency, please call 911 or seek immediate assistance. This site and information on it are provided “as is” and reliance on it is solely at your own risk.
Want to republish my content? Aww, I’m flattered. Please email me first at starrkimberlyc (at) gmail (dot) com.
Republished content from my previous blogs. This isn’t my first rodeo, y’all. In fact, this is my third blog. Many of my articles were originally published on those other blogs. Anything republished from those websites will have been updated for this site and may be noted as republished content. That disclosure may even direct you to my featured writing for more information.
Other articles I’ve written, originally published elsewhere, may be republished here. These articles will have a link back to the original publication site in compliance with both blogging best practices and agreements with the original publisher.
This blog uses Google Analytics and WordPress. Both use “cookies” to enhance the user experience. (Not actual cookies. Computer cookies. Sorry!) Cookies transmit information back to Google (not me), where it does its own thing with that data. If that’s not cool with you, you can opt out here and get lots more info about guarding your data here.
There is some third-party content on this site – and my site does not access or directly use that data. This third-party content includes:
- audience measurement (Google analytics)
- advertising networks
- social networks (where you login using a social network so you can leave a comment, share a post, or both)
Finally, there’s a few things in life that I believe you should never share: underwear, swimsuits, toothbrushes, and emails. If you sign up for the email newsletter, or use your email to leave a comment, that info will never be sold, because that’s gross.
In compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to have all of your data removed from any non-aggregate compilation. To request your right to be forgotten, please email StarrKimberlyC (at) gmail (dot) com.
European Cookie Law
Despite me being in the USA, there are some amazing European folks who read this website (I’ve got family living in Germany). That being said, you agree to consent to cookie use by accessing and using this website.
