Disclaimers:  

Books

Lavender Prose will sometimes receive books (Advanced Reader Copies or otherwise) in exchange for an honest review.  Any ARCs received are never sold, but are either kept by the blogger or are part of a giveaway.  Any and all posts that have ARCs or other author/publisher provided books will say so.  So unless it is stated, the books that are reviewed were borrowed by, gifted to, or bought by myself or any lovely guest reviewer.  


Privacy Policy:

 

We may collect personal identity information when you comment, subscribe to Lavender Prose or ScribeKit newsletters, enter giveaways, or simply visit the site.  You do always have the option to use the site anonymously.

We will never sell your information, but there are a few third-parties who will have access to it; namely our email service provider and our comment service provider.

We might use some of your general information (IP address, country, etc.) for statistical purposes, but it will never be associated with your name or email address.  

We will not ask for anything except for your name and email address when you comment or subscribe to the site or newsletter; so you don't need to worry that we might ask for your bank information or anything similar.  
The reason we do ask for the information we gather is so that your comments or subscriptions aren't marked as spam, and so (if you subscribe) we can send you our newsletter.

The exception to this rule is if we are hosting a giveaway; if you win a giveaway, we will need your mailing address.  But any information gathered when hosting a giveaway will be deleted once that giveaway is over.

Complying with the children's online privacy protection act, I will not, as far as it depends on me, gather the information of anyone under 18 years of age.

Lavender Prose will contain links to outside sites, but we am not responsible for those sites and they have their own privacy policies.

The information we collect from you during the ordering process will NOT be shared to anyone except the third-parties who handle processing the orders.  (Squarespace order go through Stripe, a reputable company!)

In the case of custom kits:  We would NEVER steal any of your intellectual property.  It is yours and yours alone.  We ask for information on your writing project so that we can customize the kit we send to you!
