It’s time for me to get serious for once. This page includes all things that will hopefully prevent me from getting sued. If you want to know about ChiCityFashion’s privacy policy, disclosures, and other rules then this is the place to be. If you have any questions about the information below, please email info@chicityfashion.com.

 

Disclosure:

We sometimes work with brands on site collaborations for which we are compensated (whether it be with cash money, free stuff or otherwise).  When that happens, we disclose the relationship clearly at the top of the post.  We would never endorse a brand or product that we didn’t believe in and we would never provide our readers with anything other than our own, unadulterated reviews, opinions and experiences with a product or service.

We also sometimes make use of affiliate links via SkimLinks, rewardStyle, and other such services.  A commission is earned when a product is purchased using such a link which helps support the continued provision of content on the site (plus, a girl’s gotta eat…right?)

The views and opinions expressed on the site are my own.  Any product claim, statistic or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.  We make no representations or warranties as to the effectiveness or quality of any product or service.

Privacy:

We take the collection and protection of your personal information (for example, your name, phone number or any addresses of yours) super seriously.  We do collect personal information when you contact us, submit a comment, subscribe for site updates and fill out any other forms on the site. We will never sell your personal information to anyone.  We will not share your personal information either, except to those trusted partners of ours who help us operating the site and servicing you (so long as those parties pinky swear to keep it all confidential).  We protect your personal information using the same kinds of industry-standard measures used by similar websites.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from persons under 13 years old. If you are under 13, you may not use this website (sorry) or send us any information (L).

This website is a member of the GLAM Media network.  Please refer to the GLAM website for information on Cookies, including what they are (hint: they are not food), how they are used (in general, to make your user experience more relevant), and your opt-out rights (you can disable cookies).

Intellectual Property:

Please don’t steal my fantastic content.  This site, and material contained in it, is copyrighted.  It is made available to you for your own personal, non-commercial use only. You can also pin, tweet, regram, pose, etc. but only if you link back to the original post.  Any unauthorized use of such material is strictly prohibited.

If you believe that your work has been copied and posted on our site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with the following information pursuant to the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”): (i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site; (iv) your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (v) a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.  Our agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached by e-mail at info@chicityfashion.com or by mail here.

Comments:

Look, we love comments… even those that disagree with us (just don’t be too harsh…I’m sensitive).  However, we reserve the right to reject or edit comments that we deem to be: (i) lewd or obscene, (ii), violent, insulting or threatening, (iii) racist, (iv) libelous, (v) plagiarized, (vi) private information published without consent, (vii) off topic, vague or meandering (viii) trolling, or (ix) advertising, promotions or spam.  Also, don’t send us a treatise you’ve grabbed from elsewhere; doing this likely constitutes copyright infringement.  Currently, we allow visitors to post comments anonymously (meaning, readers won’t see who you are even though you have to enter your email address and name in order to post), but we reserve the right to change this approach in the future.  Please understand that any information that you disclose in comments becomes public information that may be accessed by third parties that we do not control.

Changes; Consent:

If we decide to change these policies, we will post those changes on this page and they will become effective immediately.  By using the site, you consent to the privacy policy, as amended.
