Disclaimer, Disclosure & Copyright
DISCLAIMER & DISCLOSURE POLICY:
The views expressed on abeautifulstory.net are mine and are based on my own – and featured others’ – experiences with different health and beauty products as an every day lay person. You may have different responses to products compared to my friends and I, as everyone is unique! Any and all information on this blog is not a substitute for professional advice from your treating health professional/s, beautician, or hair/makeup professional.
All views expressed on this site do not represent or have any association with those of my full-time employer. In creating, updating, and maintaining this blog I ensure there are no conflicts of interest between my blogging and my full-time employment.
As stated in About > The Blog, I do review or otherwise feature products received from PR (Public Relations companies, brand representatives) from time to time. This is always clearly disclosed in the particular blog post. All other products are purchased by me unless I state otherwise; I will always tell you where or how I have received an item or service (as hey, you may wish to go get it too!).
This blog accepts various forms of advertising, including banner, gif, and widget based ads (images that you click to take you to the advertiser’s site), sponsored posts and affiliate links. (Sponsored posts = I am paid to write about a particular product or service on the site, but retain editorial control and continue to provide my honest thoughts. Affiliate links = I earn a very small % commission from any products that you may buy if you have found the particular online shop via a link on this website.) This is because abeautifulstory.net is a self hosted site, and advertising helps me (partially) cover the costs! All banner and gif ads, sponsored posts and affiliate links are always clearly identified – either with a disclaimer statement in a blog post, or via use of the word “advertising” or “sponsored” above the particular banner, gif, widget or link.
My readers are important to me and as such I endeavour to keep advertising to a minimum and focused on products and services that I think are relevant to the site and its readers.
FOR PR: I value hearing from PR and companies interested in working with me, and appreciate your time. Please be aware that due to the volume of requests I receive, sending me an item/s will not guarantee review or feature of said item/s on the site. If you would like to send me something AND wish it to be reviewed/featured, please email me to discuss first.
I take this seriously. I work darn hard on this blog and as such I, Sarah at abeautifulstory.net, hold the copyright for all the blog’s posts, pages, and images unless the post or image is credited in this blog as coming from another source. If you would like to use a post, page, excerpts of a post or pages, or any of my photographs you MUST receive written permission from me first. To do this, please email me at abeautifulstory@hotmail DOT com
Thank you and enjoy abeautifulstory.net!
