I reserve the right to change the focus of the blog, publication status, or change the terms of use at my own discretion. I reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments without notice due to comments deemed to be spam or potential spam, comments including profanity, comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive, comments that attack a group or person individually, or otherwise as I deem appropriate.

Copyright Policy

Unauthorized duplication of material without express and written permission from this blog’s author and/or owner is strictly prohibited. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. Please refer to my Link with Love page for details on how to share. We love it when you share! 

Advertising and Sponsorship

This is a personal creative blog, with the primary purpose of encouraging and supporting creativity in all forms. Any post at Creativity Unmasked must align with the ethos of this blog and suit the target audience.

Creativity Unmasked exists to share. I often post about interesting discoveries, activities, products and shops. These are usually my own creative activities or personal finds (real and virtual). In the interest of supporting creativity in all forms, relevant websites of origin are always credited as are any shared images. Guest interviews and feature posts for artisans and independent creative entrepreneurs are free of charge in keeping with the aim of Creativity Unmasked. Unpaid posts may also include other unpaid links which help to provide supplemental information on a post or topic, including but not limited to definitions, resources, charities, events, etc. I am not compensated in any way for writing these posts or sharing the links - I just love to share!

Creativity Unmasked will accept select forms of sponsorship and affiliate compensation.

Compensated posts will only be accepted if they suit the ethics, audience, style, and intent of Creativity Unmasked. Compensated posts at Creativity Unmasked will always be clearly identified. I believe that it is important to be upfront, open, and honest with readers. Disclosure of any material relationships or compensation is not only a legal requirement, but also a matter of personal ethics. Creativity Unmasked accepts products for review and/or giveaway. Reviews at Creativity Unmasked are honest. Whether a post is paid or unpaid, I will only recommend products that I have personally used and enjoyed. Compensation will never influence the content of content posted in this blog.

Blogroll positioning cannot be bought. The same general rule applies to any of the Creative Goodness links that I share on the sidebar. These websites get a starring shout-out because they are helpful, I have used their resources, and/or I simply enjoy reading them.

Advertisements that appear on this blog are third party (Google AdSense, Google Affiliates and/or Project Wonderful and/or other sponsor advertisements). From time to time, Creativity Unmasked may also offer free advertising blocks to artisans and independent creative entrepreneurs. I do not personally vet or endorse the products and services advertised in any of these formats.  

Note: Any product claim, statistic, quote, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
