The Fine Print

The Fine Print
The FTC requires that I disclose pretty much every detail about my relationship with any company that gives me something, whether it is a purse, shoes, or cash. You might also like to know. So, here it goes!

All Things Kate is a personal blog, written and edited by Kate Retherford. The editorial integrity of All Things Kate is extremely important. I fully control all of the content on All Things Kate and all opinions expressed are my own. All items worn were selected and purchased by me unless otherwise noted. Items gifted to me will be disclosed by using “c/o”.

Affiliate Programs & Third Party Advertising
All Things Kate uses affiliate programs and third-party advertisements to monetize content and/or to serve ads when you visit this website. When available, I will make use of affiliate links when linking to outside brands that I like or am talking about in a post. If you click on a link to make a purchase or to get more information, it may result in a commission for All Things Kate.

On occasion, I will also host giveaways on my blog. I am not paid to do these giveaways, but often companies or individuals think my readers would enjoy using their products and I will agree to put the giveaway up on my site. Many times, I will also elaborate on my relationship with the company or individual, so that you may know my true intentions, and because it often is interesting. I also receive free products for review from companies and organizations from time to time. Again, I always let you know where these products came from and the reviews will always be my own opinion and based on my own experiences.

Social Media
All Things Kate may share affiliate links through social media including, but not limited to, Facebook and Twitter. If you click through an affiliate link when buying an item, I will be partially compensated for your click or your purchase. You are under no obligation to click through via one of the links when shopping online.
