Privacy Policy and Disclosures

Boring (But Important) Legal Shit

Privacy policy & disclosures

Well hello friend, I see you are here to be regaled by my legalese! BUCKLE UP!

The internet can be a big and scary place, and we all must be diligent to ensure that our personal information is not used for nefarious purposes. Well, I- the Head Bitch in Charge of Healthy Living for Hot Messes- just want to make sure you know that I am a firm believer in keeping your personal information confidential.

However, I’m gonna go ahead and show you the receipts here, so you can rest happy knowing what information is collected when you come to this website, as well as how it is used and shared.

What information is collected?

Healthy Living for Hot Messes collects as little information as possible from users looking to post comments and messages. This might include a name (whatever you choose to enter, we aren’t picky), your personal website, and e-mail address. If leaving your details stresses you out then feel free to pass on commenting. I love me some comments, but causing Internet friends and strangers anxiety is not my bag.

Cookies / IP address tracking

Sadly for me, these cookies are *hashtag boring* and not the delicious type that my arse likes to hoard as insulation. SAD FACE! However, like all pages on the Internets, Healthy Living for Hot Messes uses cookies to uniquely identify users for the purpose of log files, posting comments, and potentially other stuff like polls, voting, etc. This is just one of those Internet things we all have to deal with when we’re swimming about online. Apologies these aren’t real cookies, because I get it- I’m disappointed too.

Your personal information is not being kept, cookies are simply a way to identify your computer. I’m trying to embrace minimalism so you can keep your personal information to yourself. Deal?

Links to other websites

Healthy Living for Hot Messes may contain links to other websites of interest. Just know that once you have used these links to leave this site, you aren’t in my house anymore so I’m no longer the boss! You should note that we do not have any control over that other website. This means that we are not responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting those other sites. Cool?

A little louder for the folks in the back- those sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question. This legal shit is proper boring but important to be aware of.


With whom information is shared

None of your information will be shared with anyone else unless specifically required, i.e. to arrange delivery of a giveaway prize, should I ever do a thing like that. Obviously in a case like that I would receive that info from you in writing with consent. Winning shit is cool.

If you have signed up to my email list then you will get random inconsistent emails that are there to help you remember to love me and visit me again on Healthy Living for Hot Messes, and I have sent out the required forms to be compliant through my email delivery provider.

Opting out

Emails from Healthy Living for Hot Messes have an unsubscribe option at the bottom should you decide that you’re sick of me. Feel free to unsubscribe at any point! I’d miss you, but wish you well anyways.

Third party advertising

I have third party advertisements on my site, and that third party may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.

These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.

Again, all very standard, and not something I can advise you on, but if you need to know then visit to find out what it’s all about and how to opt out of this.

As per CCPA- We do NOT sell your information, all that is tracked is neutral information (demographic data and cookies, etc.) collected for the purposes of ad network targeting.

Ad Networks that Healthy Living for Hot Messes is a part of:

Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics, like most every site online. This keeps track of what you’re reading, for how long, and where in the world you are. If I were to get ambitious and figure out how to use this service I could also see your age, your gender and how the hell you ended up here (It was probably Facebook). That being said, I can’t identify you, so don’t worry.
