Privacy/Disclosure Policies

Privacy Policy

I take all reasonable precautions to keep your data, including credit card numbers, safe and secure. And giving me your email address will not cause you to receive a bunch of emails offering to help you lose weight, grow or remove hair, cure whatever illnesses you have, enlarge body parts you may or may not have, and so on.

My philosophy is simple: I treat you the way I like to be treated. I am honored when you trust me with any personal information, including your email address. And I won’t violate your trust.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Thank you. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact cathy(at)idealady(dot)com.

Disclosure Policy

I value the relationships I have with my readers and subscribers, and appreciate the trust you place in me. In that spirit, I offer the following disclosures:

This website is a money-making venture, and my compensation comes from several sources. Here are some of the ways I am compensated:

  • There are contextual ads, clearly labeled as such, on nearly every page of this website. When visitors click on one of these ads, I receive payment. These ads are automatically generated. I do not select these advertisers and do not necessarily endorse the products or services offered.
  • I create and sell products such as books, ebooks, audio programs and more through my company, Special Interests Publishing. I also provide training and consulting services.
  • I sometimes recommend products or services, with links to where they can be purchased. In some cases, I may receive a commission or other compensation when a reader clicks on the link and makes a purchase.
  • Recommendations are never made solely for the purpose of obtaining a commission. I will not be influenced by possible compensation to make a recommendation or give a positive review. When a product or service is recommended on my sites or in any of my writing, it is because I believe in the product. Often, it is a product or service I personally use or have used in the past.
  • Sometimes a link is just a link. Many links on this site are there just because there is something I want to share with my readers, and I do not receive compensation of any type when someone clicks on the link and visits another site or makes a purchase.
  • This site sometimes features content created by others. This content will be clearly labeled with the author’s name. This content may include links to their sites or resources recommended by the authors. They are solely responsible for this content.
