Affiliate Disclaimer, Terms of Use, Disclaimer and Privacy Policy

When you utilize the resources on this website, whether by reading or downloading my content, you are agreeing to follow the terms outlined on this page.

 

The simple version:

My goal is to give you as much helpful content as I can. And most of it will be completely free. Seriously, my goal is to deliver value and make a real difference in your blogging journey. I do utilize affiliate links where appropriate on my site, but I always divulge honest information. My affiliate links are for products that I actually use and love. These are products that I would recommend to my closest friends. I will also never share your name, email address, or any other personal information I collect with any third party without your explicit permission.

While my hope is that this can establish your trust in me, this means that I have to trust you. I trust that you will not externally share my content in a way that doesn't lead back to my website as the original creator. I trust that you will not remove my copyright information or plagiarize what I create. I trust that you will not share the content of any of my paid products with someone who has not purchased the same product.

Simply put, respect me and my content, and I will continue to respect you and provide you with the very best I have to offer!

If you're still uncertain about anything that may or may not be allowed on my site, you may continue to read the following disclaimers, disclosures, statements, and terms. Or you can contact me at katie@thelazysource.com.
