Reserve Rights

I, Amber Snyder from Heeding The Hearth, reserve the right to change the focus of the blog (like turning it into a platform for fellow philanthropists and book collectors – as I might very well do in the future), to shut it down, sell it, change the terms of use (go to a paid platform) at my own discretion.

I also reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to www.heedingthehearth.com  without notice due to: comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam, comments including profanity, comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive, comments that attack a group or person individually, or comments from my parents telling me to call them more often. I do accept virtual kisses, flowers and encouraging pets on the back.

Advertisers and Sponsors

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues, not Heeding The Hearth.

Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. Just because I like the colour red (usually with white polka dots), doesn’t have to mean you will like it too!

To help the website expand, to cover costs of running the site and for me to be able to fly to Fiji three times a year (YEAH I WISH!), some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a (mind you – very) small commission on any purchases made after clicking on one of these links. I will do my absolute best to only provide you with information about products that I truly believe in. I will never take your trust for granted. All reviews on my website will be presented honestly and I will disclose whether I will be receiving any commissions or products for free.

Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. (Part of) these letters or emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, blog posts, columns or up-and-coming books. Big compliments will be painted on a tile and put up in my bathroom.

 

Thank you so much for visiting my website and don’t forget to enjoy yourself!

Icing On The Cake

If you have enjoyed reading this disclaimer (did you ever think you would read those words together?), please allow me a moment to credit The Travel Tester for the vast majority of this comically written but legally binding disclaimer provided with their permission as noted at the bottom of their own disclaimer page.  They just made that legal mumbo jumbo fun to read and you’re sad it’s over now.  Shocking, right?
