Disclosures and Privacy Policy

.

Updated June 23, 2018

Disclaimer

The videos and lessons presented on Embroidery Gatherings and Happy Home Acres Education Ltd are strictly my own and do not represent any other affiliation. Unless otherwise noted.

This website was intended to be a resource for people who are looking for help to learn the Floriani FTCU digitizing program.

I am not affliated with RNK Distributors or employed as a Floriani Educator. These tutorials are completely independent and developed by myself.

 

Disclosure

Since this blog is a source of income for me and may occasionally incorporate endorsements or testimonials, I feel it is important to disclose the following to you:

  • I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
  • I only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have used and that I feel will be beneficial to my readers.
  • If any products are provided to me, by any advertising partners, for my review and are given free of charge with no cost, the product review is written with an objective opinion and does not necessarily result with a positive review of the product.
  • You can trust me.  I will always give my genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so.
  • My number one priority is accuracy and fairness to the readers of this blog, and I would never compromise the truth just to make money. And that’s a promise!
  • I try to make note of any mention of associated products/services/businesses within the content of this blog when affiliated, but some product mentions may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

At Embroidery Gatherings and Happy Home Acres Education Ltd, I am holding myself to the highest standards of integrity and strive to deliver interesting, helpful, and encouraging content while generating a small profit to compensate me for my time, research, and ideas. I really appreciate my readers and make it my goal to be up front and honest with every post that I write.

 

Affiliate Links

Occasionally, I talk about affiliate links. This simply means that in some tutorials on Embroidery Gatherings, I sometimes recommend a product or service that I have personally used, and if you choose to purchase that product or service via my recommendation, I will get a small referral commission. Of course, this is at no extra cost to you.
