These will not be added to my mailing list, nor will it ever be passed on or shared with third parties.

I also collect and store information that is generated automatically when you visit this site, via the help of cookies.

To ensure the security and safety of this site, I may create regular backups of all information on this site, which are held on my own machine or within the database of the server of my site. Each backup file will be deleted in full when the next one is created.
I reserve the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this site without notice due to, but not limited to:

The site also includes links to websites of brands I review/ companies I work with on a collaborative basis, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties. I occasionally also link to other websites of interest. These third-party sites have their own privacy policies and we therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
https://talesfrommamaville.com/ is not responsible for any republished content from this site on other blogs, websites or other media.
I sometimes host competitions and giveaways on my site. In these cases, I will require participants details such as Name and E-mail address. I will never disclose your personal data to any third party unless you have won a competition/ giveaway on the site. In this instance I will need to share your Name and E-mail address with the company offering the competition prize. I may also be required to provide your postal address in order for the company to send you the prize – I will always ask your permission before doing so.
Once I have passed over your details to the company offering the prize, I do not have any control over how they use your data.
In the event that the online software I use to facilitate competitions and giveaways incurs a security breach, I will notify the ICO within 72 hours of being aware of the breach. I will endeavour to notify all competition entrants for whom I have details as soon as is reasonably and safely practicable.
I will never sell, barter or share your personal information with advertisers or a third party unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
