Advertising Privacy Statement

This Site is affiliated with Google Adsense (“Adsense”) for the purposes of placing advertising on the Site.  Adsense uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, Google and our other advertising partners will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.  

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.  Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Site, you consent to the use of such cookies and the sharing of data captured by such cookies with Google, and our other third party partners. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting: https://adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the network cookie using those settings or using the Network Advertising Initiative’s multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://optout.networkadvertising.org. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained.

In compliance with FTC guidelines, In Our Spaces is required to disclose affiliate links. Links that are advertisements (banner and / or text) are either affiliate links or paid advertiser links. This page was created in order to have full disclosure with my readers. I do use affiliate links on this website. Therefore, you should be aware of the fact that some of the links that you click on my blog might earn me a little something. This does not add any extra cost on your part, but it helps me out to produce more content.

In the case of affiliate links, In Our Spaces may receive a small commission from sales of certain items, without negatively affecting the price you pay for such items. In fact, sometimes the affiliate links you click on various In Our Spaces pages may entitle you to a discount or bonus that is not available to the wider public.

The commissions earned by In Our Spaces cover a small portion of the expenses associated with running In Our Spaces, a web site that provides free blog content and informational content.

In Our Spaces is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. In addition, In Our Spaces participates in other commission programs such as affiliate partnerships with different brands. Pages on this site may include affiliate links sites on which In Our Spaces may make a referral commission.

If you click on a third party advertisement or an affiliate link on this site and are taken to a third party’s website, that third party site may track information regarding your visit or collect personal information that you submit. In Our Spaces does NOT have control over or knowledge of how or whether this occurs and you should read that site’s privacy policy if you want to learn about how your information may be used.

This blog does not share personal information with third parties nor do we store any information about your visit to this blog other than to analyze and optimize your content and reading experience through the use of cookies. You can turn off the use of cookies at anytime by changing your specific browser settings.

Sponsored Posts

I occasionally work with brands on sponsored posts. However, I can promise you that all opinions presented are honest. I will never say I like a product if I don’t truly think so, regardless if it’s a sponsored post or not. I am very particular when it comes to brands I work with, and only accept the ones that resonate with me or that I would buy/use myself.

Also, any products sent to me for review purposes will be marked accordingly.

Legal Stuff

I am not a licensed financial advisor. The information that is found here are my opinions and the opinions of other readers/contributors, and should be taken as such.
