Please refer to our Affiliate Disclosure
What are affiliate links? Very simple, whenever you click on a link and you purchase the product we recommend, we will earn a small commission at no cost to you. This is helping us to keep the blog up and running. So, all the commissions we earn are being put straight back into our website (or are donated to charity!). Please note that we only recommend products that we have tested and used, and we find valuable (unless indicated otherwise). None of the products are displayed to only make money – because, that’s not the point!
If you have any questions or any concerns, please always feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Filling out a Contact Form, you are required to provide your name (you are free to choose, and may choose to use a nickname rather than your real name) and your email address (it’s important that you provide your actual email address, otherwise we won’t be able to contact you). Your name and your email address are only required, so we can reply to your message. You may also leave a note that you do not want to be contacted.
Lavender Gypsy is only keeping your contact form submissions for up to 3 months for customer service purposes, but the Website does not use the information submitted through the Contact Form for marketing purposes.
