Disclaimer & Privacy Policy

Disclaimer

Posts on this blog that include work with a brand are marked with an asterisk (*). All views on products that I have been asked to promote and review are completely honest and my own. Not all products sent to me have been sent for free, some I have paid for at a discounted price.  Occasionally, I do use affiliate links/codes on my blog however this does not affect your user experience in any way or cost you anything; it is simply to benefit me in a small way. If you have any further questions concerning this, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Privacy Policy

Below is the privacy policy for this website - ohhelloitshannah.co.uk. This has been created in order to provide more information on how this website complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.

What personal information do I collect from people that visit my blog and why?
Name or username, IP address (automatically collected) and website URL. This data is collected when visitors leave comments on my website. Email addresses will also be collected when I receive emails to my blog email address, for example from a brand or a brand representative. This information is kept strictly confidential between myself and that person in order to maintain a professional relationship and abide by the law.

I also collect non identifiable data such as browser and operating system information, as well as the names of countries where users have accessed my website, which all allow me to see my website statistics. I use this data to run my site efficiently and to personalise user experience.

How do I protect your information?
I never ask for credit card numbers or payment details. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. I implement a variety of security measures when a user enters or submits their information to maintain the safety of your personal information.

Cookies
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, I use cookies to collect information on your browsing behaviour. Cookies are placed on the device you are viewing the site on and remember when that device accesses the site. These cookies do not collect personal information but monitor your behaviour whilst browsing. 

These cookies and the information they collect help improve this site for yourself and future visitors by monitoring traffic of users and success of particular content. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.

Embedded content from other websites and third-party plug ins
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include links to other articles, images or videos on my website.  I also have widgets on my website that are hosted by third-parties, for example Bloglovin', Instagram and Twitter. These websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, which I would recommend reading. I therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my website and welcome any feedback about these third-party sites.

Do I share data?
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties.

How long do I retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. 

Your data rights
If you have left comments, you can request to receive the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Changes to this privacy policy
I reserve the right to alter this privacy policy when necessary, for example the introduction of new laws and regulations. Further changes can be understood by viewing when this privacy policy was last updated (see bottom of page).

Contact
Please contact me via email ohhelloitshannah@gmail.com for privacy-specific concerns or if you would like me to clarify any of the above.
