Following recent guidelines issued ASA guidelines, all blog posts which feature payment from a brand in cash, kind or gifted items/experiences in return for coverage will be labelled as ‘This is an advertisement feature’ with an explanation. Accompanying Social Media posts will be labelled with (Ad).
If you look at my blog you will find a lot of product reviews, mainly because I love trying new products and services and sharing my thoughts about them. I often receive the products for free in order to try them out and review them, but I will make this clear in my post. I will give an honest opinion about the product and try and cover the good and bad points.
I retain editorial control of everything published on this site.
Older posts may have different disclosure:
- Collaborative Post:- I have been paid (either in cash or kind) to write about this brand. All thoughts, words and opinions will always be my own.

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.
I am committed to ensuring that my website contains content that is valuable and useful to my readers. To help me with this I have implemented the Google Analytics demographics and interest reporting features on my website. These tools allow me to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age and interests of website visitors and adapt my website content to better reflect their needs. Although this information is collected through your Google ad settings, it is not provided to me in a personally-identifiable format. This means I cannot identify what information is about you, and I will never attempt to do so.
Who we share your data with
The only time any details are passed on are if you are the winner of a giveaway hosted on this blog, and your permission will be asked for before this happens. Permission will be requested via email and your details will be received and passed on via email, only to the brand for which Dragons and Fairy Dust is hosting the giveaway or competition. Once a period of one month has elapsed, your details and giveaway email notifications will be deleted from my personal email account. Dragons and Fairy Dust is not responsible for your details held by the brand once they have been passed on. You may also request your details to be removed from the competition widget within the blog post which you entered through.
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.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
