disclosure

policy

Effective date: 21 February, 2021
This disclosure policy is subject to change at anytime with or without any notice.

 Reliability 

My wish is to create and maintain a reliable and trustworthy source of information and content for all of my readers and I will never be paid or incentivised to speak positively about a product, service or experience if I do not agree. I only feature items that I feel deserve to be featured on this site in some way, so I may choose not to feature something entirely if I see it as being a waste of my own time and also my readers time. This ensure that everything featured on KA5THLEEN (and my social media accounts) is featured honestly, and because I wholeheartedly love and use it myself.

Opinions

All views and opinions mentioned on KA5THLEEN are of my own and are mentioned for information, enjoyment and review purposes. They will not be influenced by PR or commerce, nor represent those of people, companies or organisations that I may or may not be associated with. Everyone has their own opinions, and these are my own. I do not wish to offend or insult anybody by what I write.

Image Credits

The images used on this site are included in posts to better the viewers experience and, unless otherwise stated, belong to this site and author. Please do not use the imagery for professional purposes or material. If you would like to use any of the images on KA5THLEEN for you blog post or social media, ideally contact me in advance and please credit myself in the caption clearly and do link back to this site. Images from other sources used on this site will include credit captioned under the image. Please note that KA5THLEEN may also include images from a number of sites such as Pexels – those photos will not include a caption stating their source due to the Creative Commons Policy. 

Affiliates and Gifts

I utilise affiliate commission services including Skimlinks and Awin to earn a small percentage of commission on product sales, alike to the majority of bloggers, which helps me cover the costs associated with my website. This site therefore uses cookies. The links or products used don’t cost you any more that what they usually would (the commission is taken from the retailer, so think of it as a little thank you from the retailer for introducing you to said product or service). Each individual blog post will declare the use of affiliate links in the integrated text if they are used -these declarations will be at the very beginning of each post if applicable. Some widgets may also use affiliate links. I choose to be extremely mindful about reviewing PR and of potential collaborations as I want to create and maintain a reliable and trustworthy source of information and content for all of my readers. Receipt of any PR item/service/experience does not promise a review on this site or exposure across social media – I have the right to control my content. Some products, services or experiences featured on this site may have been gifted or bought with discount codes or vouchers. These will be marked with an asterisk (*) in the title as well as a short explanation at the beginning of the post. 

Comments

I love hearing your thoughts, opinions and feedback, thus comments are more than welcome on KA5THLEEN. However, I reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to this site without notice due to any of the following: deemed to be spam or questionable spam, includes profanity, contains language or concepts that could be deemed offensive or contains hate speech, credible threats, or direct attacks on an individual, group or community.

Disclaimer

I make money as a digital content creator and social media manager for an organisation which I really enjoy, so I feel no added pressure to monetise this site unnecessarily. If I’m using affiliate links, I’ll tell you, if I’ve been provided with product gratis, I’ll tell you, and occasionally I may forget because I’m not perfect – so I apologise now for that.

Content for a range of topics including mental health and wellness is covered on KA5THLEEN. Please note that I do not have a qualified expertise in these areas and the aforementioned and forthcoming information provided is based on my personal life experiences, career experience, knowledge, and research. Please do take this into consideration when viewing any of the content I create – whether that be through this site (KA5THLEEN.com), my social media accounts (@KA5THLEEN).
