Privacy Policy

This Influencer Disclosure Policy is valid as of May 1, 2020. This policy covers the below social channels owned and managed by Amy Samuel:

  • Instagram Handle : @the_weekend_designer
  • Blog : https://theweekenddesigner.com

These channels strive to abide by the FTC Guidelines for online influencers. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. The compensation I receive from marketers may influence content, topics or posts. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content in accordance with the FTC Guidelines.

I may be compensated to provide my opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even when I receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed through these channels are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Thanks for spending time with us!

While I strive to create as much original content as possible for The Weekend Designer, I also provide links, images, and information that will direct you to other resources that I am unaffiliated with. I believe in community over competition, so if I love something, I’m excited to share the discovery. If you notice something that was miscredited, please email me and I will take the steps necessary to make sure all benefit goes to the original creator.

Feel free to share or pin any images or text that I created specifically for The Weekend Designer. All I ask is that you provide a link to the blog and provide proper credit.

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links will always be clearly identified. When you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, I receive a small (often very small) commission in return. Clicking on and purchasing through affiliate links serves as a small gesture of appreciation for the blogger and I am so grateful when you choose to use an affiliate link to purchase a product or service you discovered through my content. It lets me know you find my content useful and helps me continue planning great content. The affiliate commission will in no way impact your purchase.

How I Protect Your Information

I never, ever sell your information to third parties.

Like most websites, I collect and use data collected in log files only for general traffic and analytic purposes. The information I receive is your IP (Internet Protocol) address, your ISP (Internet Service Provider), the browser you used to access https://theweekenddesigner.com, the time you visited, how many pages you visited, and which pages you visited.

I use third party advertisers such as Google Adsense to place banner ads throughout the site and in various locations within pages. These third party advertisers may use technology like cookies and web beacons to collect similar information such as your IP address and your ISP, typically for targeting purposes – serving the right ad to the right audience.

No personally identifying information is collected or stored.

You consent to the use of cookies and the sharing of data captured by cookies through Google and/or any other third party advertising partners through your use of this site.

You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your specific browser at https://adssettings.google.com. You may opt out of the network cookie using those settings or using the Network Advertising Initiative’s multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://optout.networkadvertising.org. These opt-outs also function through cookies, so be aware that clearing these cookies from your browser means your opt-out will be cleared and no longer function, as well.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
