Who Am I?
I’m Arfa, the creator of Shemeansblogging and the website address is https://shemeansblogging.com/.
I would like to let you know that I do have affiliate links on my site. That means I use this blog as an income source and I use affiliate marketing, ads, sponsored content and other methods for making money. If you make a purchase through my affiliate links, I’ll earn a small amount of commission. But, it doesn’t cost you anything extra at all. That’s all.
At Shemeansblogging, I only choose to promote products that I personally believe in. I also believe in sharing my honest opinions related to products, services, and tools.
Reviews of products that I share are 100% personal opinions whether I’m an affiliate of that business or not. I write for the benefit of my readers.
It is important for me to disclose to my valued readers whenever a blog post contains an affiliate link. We make our readers aware of including an affiliate disclaimer.

Let’s be fair with the legal stuff.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it?
Be assured that we collect personal data such as name, email address, transaction data as in purchase information and importantly, technical data such as cookies. Keep that in mind that we do not store any data with us.
You can turn off the cookies anytime by just changing the browser settings. It’s as simple. You can always decide which cookies to accept or decline.
Cookies are just tiny pieces of data that collect information when a visitor visits the website or blog.
I use WordPress to host this website and by default, WordPress does not collect any personal data about visitors, and only collects the data shown on the User Profile screen from registered users.

In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyse this data.
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.
I use Contact form submissions for a certain period for customer service purposes, but I do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes.

How long we retain your data
