Full Disclosure: We're weirdos.
You want to use professional, specific language, and cover all aspects of your blog that people knowingly or unknowingly encounter. It doesn't need to be a focal point of your website. Most privacy policies are discretely placed at the very bottom of the page in somewhat small letters. Since mine is long, there is a link leading to a hidden page containing the whole policy. Some blogs with a shorter policy just put the whole thing down there.
This is where you want to specify citation policies and general ownership of your blog's content.
Feel free to use any content or pictures from The Framed Lady, but please cite. Additional written consent is not required, unless specified. If you would like to use an entire post (i.e. a guest post, of sorts) or multiple posts on your site, please inquire before using. All content and pictures on this blog are the sole property of me, Tess, owner of all things “The Framed Lady,” unless otherwise specified. If an idea or image is not mine, I cite the original source to the best of my ability.
Advertising and Affiliations
This is where you want to disclose your personal and professional affiliations and advertising connections. If you do sponsoring on your blog, say so. If you use Google Ad sense, say so. If you are an Amazon affiliate, say so. Same goes with any other companies (I'm looking at you, Shabby Apples). Do you host sponsored giveaways on your blog? Do you offer ongoing discounts for stores?
The Framed Lady contains advertising and some contextual affiliate marketing links from Amazon, as well as other sites. This means that I may get commission on sales of the products that I link in my posts. I’m not trying to hide it or trick you into giving me a chunk of the money from your purchases. I’ll be wide open in saying that’s what I want you to do. The prices of the items are not higher in order for me to get a commission. You pay the same price, but you’ll be helping a sister out.
Some items or services may be labeled “c/o.” This means I was given the item or service in exchange for advertising or reviewing it on my blog. I list anything that I was given by a store or brand, free of charge, as "courtesy of" or "c/o".
This and the next section is where you specify any softwares that your blog may use. Just copy the whole thing. It also lets your readers know that certain ad programs (like Google Adsense) track their previous search history to customize ads to fit their consumer needs, that their history is not controlled or even seen by you, the blogger, and that they have the option to disable certain softwares.
