AFFILIATE MARKETING PROGRAMS

The majority of the posts on CitrineLiving contain affiliate links, meaning we may get a small commission at no additional cost to you if you make a purchase. Additionally, affiliate marketing embeds tracking links into CitrineLiving. Most of the products on this site that are available for purchase are linked through LIKEtoKNOW.it – please click here to refer to their privacy policy, which discloses all of the data collection information you need to know. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions. All items linked through affiliate partners are ones that I personally select, do use and/or would use in my home and designs. Compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made and that sponsored content will always be clearly stated as sponsored or paid content on this website and/or in a blog. The sponsored content that is shared here is always written in our own words and is also our own opinion – we only endorse products that we love!

NEWSLETTERS

On CitrineLiving, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows CitrineLiving to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.

At no time should you submit sensitive personal information to CitrineLiving. This includes your social security number or social insurance number, information regarding race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, health information, criminal background, or trade union memberships.
