PRIVACY

COOKIES: If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used most frequently, and this information is used in statistical analysis.

COMMENTS: When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

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.

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

THIRD PARTIES: Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on prior visits to KISE and / or other sites on the internet. Most web browsers automatically accept ‘cookies’ but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies at any time, if you prefer.

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 tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

ANALYTICS: This site uses Google Analytics.

YOUR DATA RIGHTS: 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.

KISE BRAND POLICIES

WHO WE ARE: Our website address is: https://www.keepitsimpelle.com. This site is run by Elle Linton

PRINCIPLE: The aim of KISE is to inspire, motivate and empower individuals. My personal values are rooted in honesty, fairness and authenticity.

LINKS: I will sometimes use affiliate links on my site – this means I get a very small payment when you make a purchase, but costs you, my readers nothing. I spend all money I make on my blog so it helps to keep me running. I created a tag for posts that contain affiliate links – “contains affiliate links” when they are knowingly included. I also use an automatic link converter through Affiliate Window.

PAYMENT: I accept sponsorship, paid insertions and other forms of compensation / fair reimbursement to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. In such cases, I will declare this.

GENUINE OPINION: The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts in this blog. Even though I may receive compensation for posts, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog 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.

PARTNERSHIPS: I have chosen to only work with brands that I trust, respect and identify with as a way to remain authentic.

ADVERTISING: I have installed google adsense on KISE. One is located at the top of the sidebar and then intermittently between blog posts.

CONSULTANCY: As part of KISE, my role as a Personal Trainer, Sport Development Professional and my lifestyle as a fitness enthusiast, sport participant, blogger, reviewer and consumer, I offer a consultancy service to brands and agencies for which I may charge a fee.

GUEST POSTS: I currently only request guests posts, usually from individuals I know or think my readership and myself would be interested in. Everything else on KISE is written by myself, in order to remain authentic.
