Dani Dearest is considered a for profit blog. Sometimes networks, brands, or other companies approach me and ask if I can place an ad of their’s on my site or try out a product of their’s in exchange for compensation in the form of free product or money. Everything I write about these things I am compensated for, both on Dani Dearest and on all of my social media channels, are 100% my own opinions and my own words. If I don’t like a product, I’ll let you know. If I love a product, I’ll let you know.
I will also make sure to indicate if a product was gifted to me or if I am receiving compensation for sharing my thoughts on the products by inserting a clear disclaimer at the top or bottom of each post that I received compensation for, so that you are completely aware about what you are reading.
There are also some posts on Dani Dearest which use affiliate links. These companies pay me a small amount of compensation when you click their link or purchase their product after clicking the link on my site. This does not effect the price that you pay if you purchase the product through the link on my site at all. These links are under the “my favorite things” section in the sidebar on the right and posts which contain these links will have a disclaimer of “This post may contain affiliate links” at the top.
For purposes of this Agreement, “Service” refers to the Company’s service which can be accessed via our website at www.danidearest.com or through our mobile application. The terms “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to the Company. “You” refers to you, as a user of Service.

We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive.

For example, when you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, you consent to our collecting and using such personal information for that specific purpose, including by transmitting such information to our vendors (and their service providers) performing these services for the Company.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment processors, have their own privacy policies in respect of the information that we are required to provide to them in order to use their services. For these third-party service providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand the manner in which your Personal Information will be handled by such providers.
