Privacy & Disclosures

Warning: This page is a total snooze fest. It includes info on our site policies, including cookies, affiliate marketing, privacy policy and other exhausting stuff we are required to have because, you know, we are on the internet.

Thank you for visiting Showered in Grace at NickiSchroeder.com. It excites me that you found my little nugget of encouragement on the big wide crazy thing we call the internet. High fives to you for being here! I appreciate you.

So now on to all the technical and legal stuff that I’m required to do. Ready? Here we go…

DISCLOSURES

This site is administrated and maintained by creator Nicki Schroeder. All writings are solely chosen by the creator of this site for the purpose of encouraging and uplifting its readers. As this blog continues to grow, so do the expenses. In order to cover all the service fees, hosting fees, email newsletters and other techie things that this blog requires to continue operation, I now accept paid advertising on my blog’s sidebar and use affiliate links in posts when they are available. I will selectively choose to do sponsored posts on this blog too, if I feel they will serve my readers.

At this time this site also offers free giveaways created by the site owner to those who share their email address. By accepting our free gift, you will be signed up through Mail Chimp for a newsletter and you may cancel at any time. Please note it’s possible down the road there will be self-created products and eBooks promoted on this site and in email correspondence with you. These products will be created with love to serve you and offer you hope and encouragement. They will be clearly noted and labeled as a product for sale.

SPONSORSHIP & AFFILIATE ADVERTISING

At this moment NickiSchroeder.com Showered In Grace is accepting opportunities for producing sponsored posting. If you feel this site is a good fit for your brand, please get in touch through the method listed on the speaking page to have us best serve you. In the future when our contact form is reinstated, feel free to contact the site owner through the contact page and you will be considered for future possibilities.

The cost to maintain this site and offer encouragement and entertainment to our readers is costly with things like site hosting fees, website plugins, design programs, etc. For many years we chose to absorb those costs out of pocket, but as we have grown and have served a larger audience, the tools necessary to maintain a site have dramatically increased. We promise to very carefully choose affiliates, ads, products, services, vendors, etc. to work with to help cover the cost of site production. We promise that we will choose companies and products we believe in and trust or are highly recommended by other bloggers we believe in and trust. Any written post that offers compensation for affiliates and their products or services will be clearly noted within posts, that’s our promise to you!

You recognize that it remains your personal responsibility to investigate whether any affiliate offers are right for your personhood and will benefit you. You will not rely on any recommendation, reference, or information provided by our website and its content, but you will instead conduct your own thorough investigation and knowledge to make a personal decision on whether to purchase the affiliate product or service from our site.

The owner of this site is 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. We will promote Amazon affiliate links in posts and in the blog/article sidebars in order to help with the costs to keep this site running. The links will be clearly marked as affiliate or have an association with Amazon or identifier of “Ads by Amazon.”

We have put a header at the top of each post that states something similar to the following: (This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.) We do this to ensure you are aware that links contained in the content of posts may allow us to earn a small commission or fee at no cost to you, our user.

GUEST POSTS

Guest posting on this blog is at the discretion of the site owner. From time to time we open up our site to others in order to help them grow their own platform. This is done only with those the site owner has found to have integrity and like-minded values and beliefs. If you are interested in guest posting, sign up to receive our free gift and monthly newsletter and get in touch. Be sure to include your site link in the communication and any ideas you have to offer on why you feel you are a good fit for Showered In Grace. Guest posting is only offered to established bloggers of active Christian-based sites and in an existing networking relationship with the site owner. An email will be sent back to you if there is availability and/or interest.
