Disclosures

Unless otherwise indicated, the products reviewed and/or mentioned on Cosmetopia Digest have been purchased and paid for by the blog owner, or a close family member or friend as a gift with no favours or services given in return. Products purchased may not always be disclosed as such in order to prevent clutter.
Disclosure may be in the form of text, with a link to this disclosure policy page, from June 15, 2014. Previously published PR sample reviews or sponsored posts contain disclaimer text alone, without links.

I never buy, use or review fake or grey market products. Everything shown on this website is sourced from the brand's official website or from an authorised retailer. 

Content and copyright

Unless otherwise indicated, all content (except for Comments) including text and images are supplied by me alone and belong entirely to me. Images and text may not be used, uploaded, copied, reproduced or duplicated without express written permission from me, obtained in advance. You may share the links to the blog and the posts itself, and social media share buttons are provided on relevant pages for this purpose. Press photographs supplied may be used, and credited where credit is due.
All written content is provided for general information purposes only and are not intended to replace consultation with a licensed medical practitioner or accredited cosmetologist. Opinions expressed are mine alone, based on my personal experience, except in Comments. I am not liable for medical, legal, financial or other damages sustained by readers of this blog.

Liabilities

The views expressed on this site are my own and are provided for informational purposes only. I make no warranties about the suitability of any product or treatment referenced or reviewed here for any person, and any reliance placed on these reviews or references by you is done so solely at your own risk. Nothing on this site shall be construed as providing dermatological, medical or other such advice and you are always advised to seek the advice of a suitable professional should you have any such concerns. I will not be liable for any losses, injuries or damages from the display or use of this information.

Press samples

Cosmetopia Digest accepts beauty and related lifestyle products for editorial consideration, provided these are products that suit the nature of this blog and are products that I would want to try out.
Not all products sent for editorial consideration may be reviewed, and reviews will be posted only after testing the product(s) for a suitable period of time - a minimum of four to six weeks. The owner of this blog reserves the right not to publish reviews of products if she feels that such a review post may not be in keeping with the character of this blog or that the product is unsuitable. If the product is accepted and reviewed, I will be disclosing that it is a PR sample sent for review within the post. My opinions will be entirely my own. Posts featuring samples sent for review will include the term "PR sample" at the end of the page.
Only about 1% of products featured on this site are PR samples.

Sponsored posts

This site accepts sponsored posts and you will see a clear declaration on such a post, marking it as sponsored. Incidentally, a sponsored post is where a brand or company pay you to ensure that the product or service appears on the website within the specified timeline. Sponsored posts will include the term "Sponsored" or "Sponsored post" at the end of the post.

Sponsored giveaways

This site also accepts sponsored giveaways for the benefit of readers, providing the prize is suitable for a varied audience and is in keeping with the blog's character and aims. As most of this blog's traffic comes from the US, followed by the UK, prizes MUST be open to one of these two regions for the giveaway to be accepted. For sponsored giveaways, brands/PR firms are expected to ship out the prizes. All sponsored giveaways will include a disclosure at the end of the post. All giveaways are void where prohibited and price delivery is the responsibility of the sponsor. 

Trolls

Will be blocked, ignored and blacklisted. 

Affiliate links

I have begun using affiliate links and referral codes as on June 15, 2014, and will be adding the term "Affiliate link(s)" at the end of the post. Please note that I may be using VigLinks or a similar affiliate network. These may add links on all posts, including previously published posts, which may not carry disclosure buttons or text as I am only in the process of updating posts made prior to the date mentioned.

Comments

Comments with hyperlinks will be edited to remove the hyperlink, or deleted altogether, at my discretion. I reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice or disclosure if deemed unsuitable for publication or found not in keeping with the character of this blog.
Comments on this blog are the sole responsibility of their writers and the writer of each comment will take full responsibility, liability, and blame for any libel or litigation that results from something written in or as a direct result of something written in the comment.

Display advertising

I do run display advertisements when approved by ad networks. Some of these may have third-party cookies. You may block these on your browser. I have no direct contact with anyone at any of these networks and only apply for approval through their websites.
