About School Time Snippets

Founded in 2011 and based in the United States of America, School Time Snippets is an independently operated blog run by Kristina C. School Time Snippets is a personal blog to share various learning and play activities that you may replicate in your home.

Through-out our regular learning and play-inspired activities, you will find posts that have been sponsored by a company and/or a review of a product where I have been compensated to provide my opinion.  Such posts will specifically state  in the beginning or at the end of the post that I was provided a product for free in exchange for the honest and fair review.  The views expressed in all content are my own.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.



Liability:


Adult supervision is recommended and encouraged for all activities shared on this blog.  The author of this blog disclaim liability for any damage, accident, mishap, and/or injury that may result while engaging in an activity found on this blog.  Please read through the activity prior to setting it up for your child to make sure it is appropriate for you child-- remember, no two children are alike!


Affiliate Disclosure:


School Time Snippets is a participant in Amazon Services Affiliate LLC Program--an affiliate advertising program to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com at no extra cost to you.   Money earned through this program helps fund this website and our homeschooling needs. 


I am also an affiliate to a few products you find in our Shop and for a few companies that we have purchased from to fulfill our curriculum needs in our homeschool. If you click on a link and purchase an item, I will receive affiliate commission, which in turn helps us support our homeschooling journey. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers.


However, each program collects and retains their own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these affiliate programs. It is best to read their individual privacy policies for more information on how your data is collected and used.



Privacy Policy:



Your privacy is important to School Time Snippets. The policy below outlines how your personal information is collected and how it is used when you use our website.


How Information is Collected
Here is how your information is collected on School Time Snippets:


  • if you subscribe & confirm email via Feedburner (prior to 5/15/2018) or via newsletter (5/15/18- onward)

Newsletter


If you decide to receive emails from School Time Snippets, then your first name and email address are required. We require your email address in order to send you the emails and we require your first name so that my emails to you will include a friendly personalized note. So if you prefer to be called Aunt Sally, Princess Fiona, or Jane Doe- let us know!


At the bottom of every email I send, you will find a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. If you are having trouble unsubscribing or would like to be removed from the newsletter, then simply send me an email at kristina@schooltimesnippets.com asking to be removed.


Up until 5/15/2018, I used Feedburner as my email service provider. If you received emails from us, it was because you supplied your email and activated your account. As of 5/15/2018- onward, blog post updates will be sent through MailerLite (read their privacy policy here). If you were a subscriber via Feedburner, your email address was moved to MailerLite.

As of 5-15-2018- onward, anyone that subscribes will also receive a monthly newsletter or two. When subscribing, data is collected and then passed to them, such as your name, country of origin, etc. Tags are used within MailerLite to track your actions and page visits so that future emails can be better tailored to meet your needs.


Currently, emails are set up to go out when I post a new blog post and (which is no more than once a week) and a monthly newsletter. However, I will occasionally email you about products and other promotions that may be relevant to your interests.


All emails you receive are CAN-SPAM compliant. At the bottom of every email, you will find information on how to contact the sender, as well as information on how to unsubscribe.


Cookies


Cookies store user-specific information into a log. I use the following cookies on School Time Snippets:




Google Analytics


School Time Snippets uses Google Analytics to track blog growth and user behavior. It provides information on pageviews, how you found my blog, and other valuable information that helps me adapt the content I write for this website. I am able to see what blog posts are being viewed in real-time, and that helps me share what YOU think is relevant across my other social media outlets. Google Analytics does capture anonymous data about location, age, gender, and interests, but I have no way to connect that information and specifically identify you. Google Analytics may also capture your IP address as you make your way around this website. User and event data is retained for 26 months and then is automatically deleted. You can read more about that here.
