Personal statement

I am not a doctor or therapist and advice given here is given as a sharing of my own experiences. Please use your own good judgement in implementing any advice or activities given and consult a professional should the need arise.

This blog accepts forms of advertising sponsorship, and affiliate compensation. The compensation received does influence my honest opinion of the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

I will always disclose whether or not I have received a free product to review within each post and will also identify affiliate links.

I’ve worked hard to build trust with my readers and I will not jeopardise that.  In other words, I will never tell you I like a product when I don’t. I have refused several paid offers. I am particular about the affiliate products I support, the products I sell, the products I accept for review or to giveaway and you can be certain that these high standards I set are with you, my blog reader, in mind.

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. Please don’t hesitate to email me should you have any questions or concerns.

Commitment on Protecting Personally Identifiable Information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site.

“Legitimate interests” for processing your personal information exist where you submit the information with an expectation that it will be processed and there is no undue impact on you. If you disagree or have questions, please contact liza @ maltamum.com and we will cease the processing of your data under this legal basis.

Under data protection laws you have rights in relation to your personal data that include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent.

You can see more about these rights here

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive, or we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you.

If you live in the E.U. and are not happy with any aspect of how we collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).

We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have any complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.

Sharing your personal information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. (That means I might tell an advertiser how many people clicked on their links or entered their giveaway, but I’ll never share your email addresses or names with them, unless you are the winner of a giveaway.) We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and www.maltamum.com or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out products via a courier company (normally Maltapost) that you ordered online via www.maltamum.com or www.maltamumshop.com. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission. Tracking pixels do track visits and are shared with third parties to measure ad effectiveness. (For example, if you click on a Facebook or Pinterest ad, the site will register that you arrived here and share that information with the social media site from where you came.) We may also upload email lists to third party sites for the purpose of targeting advertising, as explained in the bullet above. You may opt out of this by emailing liza @ maltamum.com. For Pinterest visitor retargeting, you may opt out through your browser’s Do Not Track feature or your Pinterest personalization settings.
