I'm a rule follower. Type A, first born child, Catholic-school-nuns-put-the-fear-of-God-in-me rule follower. So when the FTC mandates something, I follow it. I wouldn't survive jail.
In 2009, the FTC made some rules about bloggers disclosing compensated interests. Because I value honesty (again, rule follower), I'll always let you know when I get money, products, or services in exchange for a blog post. You can rest assured though…my opinion is NEVER for sale! I'm not that hard up for cash. So while you may see sponsored posts (noted with a disclosure in the post and #ad on social media) on Burgh Brides, every word I write is 100% genuine. I got your back, girl. I won't lie to you.
I should also tell you that I use affiliate links on this site. That means that I may earn a commission for purchases you make via said links. Hey, a girl's gotta eat, right? When those links are present in a post, I'll also disclose it.
When signing up to receive new posts via email, your email address will be collected via this blog's server. This information will be used to send you an email each time a new blog post is published. When commenting on a blog post, your email address will also be collected. This information will be used to send you follow up comments, if you choose to receive them. When placing an order in the Burgh Brides shop, your mailing address and credit card information will be collected via Square's secure online payment system. This information will be used to process payment and to ship your order. When entering a giveaway, your email address and social media handles may be collected. This information will be used to verify giveaway entries. BUT NONE (and I repeat, none) of this information will ever be sold. You can also visit the site anonymously.
Comments are cool…I love engaging with my readers! But play nice! I reserve the right to delete comments or ban users that I deem inappropriate, offensive, discriminatory, or self-promoting in nature. Basically, don't be a jerk and we'll all get along just fine.
