Paulaaroundtheworld.com contains some affiliate links. If you click on an affiliate link (as on the Favorite Goodies pages) through to a retailer and purchase something, I may receive a very small amount or percentage of your purchase. This does not add any additional cost to you, the consumer. Adding affiliate links into a post occurs after an opinion on the product has already been formed.
Paulaaroundtheworld.com is a mixture of products purchased by myself and may as well contain some samples. I am in no way obligated to review any products sent to me in a positive light. It’s rare, but I may accept sponsored content, which means I am financially compensated to publish a campaign or article. These posts will only be published if I feel the content is relevant to this website and will always be clearly marked as sponsored content.

Like most website operators, Paulaaroundtheworld.com collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand the visitors’ use of this website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to this website choose to interact with us in ways that require personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that depends on the nature of the interaction.
In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
