Disclaimer

Our website does contain some affiliate marketing links, which enables us to receive a small commission payment on sales of products or services that are featured on GroomingMail. We rely on this revenue stream to enable us to bring you new and exciting content.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to offer a way for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk. We are also members of other small independent affiliate platforms.

Our editorial content is not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships. However, we do use affiliate links to link to products that are featured in our editorial content.

Sponsored posts can be found on GroomingMail.com which are marked via our ‘Featured’ tag. These posts are produced via third parties and are not the views of GroomingMail.com.

You should not use the information contained on GroomingMail to diagnose or treat any health problems or conditions, or to self-prescribe medication. If you have, or suspect that you may have a medical problem, please consult a healthcare professional or your doctor.


Privacy Policy

The privacy of our visitors to GroomingMail.com is important to us.

At GroomingMail.com, we recognise that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use and visit GroomingMail.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell or share your personal information to third parties.

Who We Are

Our website address is: http://groomingmail.com

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 anonymised 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.

Cookies

We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on GroomingMail.com to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing London real estate ads to someone in London, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequently visits cooking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

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.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

If you want to see a copy of the information we hold about you, under section 7 of the Data Protection Act then please email contact@groomingmail.com. Your email needs to come from the email address you used and include your name. If you no longer have access to the email account you used, then we will require you to provide photographic proof of ID such as a driving license.

Log Files

As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Data Breaches

If any data breaches do take place then you will be made aware of it as soon as we are.
