We will only collect an process such information where we have the lawful basis to do so, which would include when you provide consent for us to do so and where the processing of such information is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, i.e. the purchase of one of our products.
We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you or about you.

We will retain your information for as long as is reasonable and necessary, as long as you are purchasing products from us, and no longer than permitted by law.

Disclosure

Images: Other than the images created by Mackenzie Carol, and those created by Allie as indicated, all other images that appear on this blog are the property of their respective owners. Every possible effort has been made to give credit where credit is due, when applicable, and I take no credit for any images that have not been created by me.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I often receive free books from authors, publishers, and publicity groups in exchange for only my honest review. I am not required to write a positive review, and therefore any opinion I express is my own. Whenever I review a book I have received for free, there will be an indication of that at the end of the post, otherwise any other review labeled "My Bookshelf" is one that I have purchased.

I am never paid for any review that appears on this site.
