Privacy Policy Cookies Disclosure

Privacy Policy and Cookies Disclosure   09/Aug/2017 (latest update)

We value our readers and we value your privacy, we comply to recommended safety guards including having the HTTPS in our URL making our site secure, we aim to link to safe sites that we trust and we handpick any banner ads that we place on our pages, we don’t want to link you to somewhere we wouldn’t want to go!

‘Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTPS stands for ‘Secure‘. It means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.’ Googled

Don’t panic if you don’t see HTTPS on a website you are visiting but you should expect to see it on pages where you are transfering personal data such as making a payment. Sometimes the HTTPS has a line through usually due to outward links that do not have the same status as the one you are on. Hope that clears it up a little.

Affiliate Marketing
fashion diy participates in affiliate marketing programs where we receive a small commission only when certain products are purchased through links on our website. We showcase Indie Music, include Indie Authors on our book pages and showcase Indie on our independent clothing page these have been self-chosen with no monetary value unless already associated with any of our affiliates including Amazon for books and iTunes for music. We will only showcase what we like and things that might be on our wish list we appreciate our original links as they were there from the beginning and so we thank them and continue to promote them on our site. We are obliged to clarify that when you click on affiliate links we earn a small commission which will hopefully enable us to keep this website updated and continue to showcase all the awesome people and businesses being viewed by our amazing readers when you click on those links they help support us so we can keep writing and showcasing.
