Sponsored Content + Advertising Policies
Slash Sensei™ is made possible by sponsorship and ads from our partners. We accept a few different types of advertisements and sponsorship but are extremely selective in the vendors and brands we choose to work with. The integrity of our website is far more important than money, so know that we only accept sponsorship requests from companies that we truly believe are right for the site and for our readers. With that in mind, please know that we do publish sponsored posts on the site, which are clearly noted as such, but we also sometimes choose to organically promote brands and products that we truly love and find to be of value to our readers.
To be clear, any time Slash Sensei™ accepts money for promoting a product or vendor, we will disclose it. All sponsored posts are clearly indicated as such at the beginning of the blog post, all of which are personally written by our team.
Advertisements on the site are clearly noted as “sponsors”, or “partners” or “featured vendors.” For more information about advertising on Slash Sensei™, please visit our advertising page. More information about the Vendor Guide is available here.
AFFILIATE LINKS: We occasionally post affiliate links that we may earn commission from if a reader purchases a product or service from an affiliate partner’s website after clicking one of our links. We receive a small percentage of the sales made through our affiliate links, which helps make this site possible. Purchasing products through our affiliate links supports the free content we share on this website, and allows us to continue to help budget savvy brides and grooms everywhere! (See a list of our affiliate partners.) You can learn more about affiliate marketing here.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Slash Sensei™ respects each individual user’s right to privacy. Slash Sensei™ and its sites do not collect personal identifying information unless such information is specifically and knowingly provided from users during contests, surveys, sweepstakes, giveaways, site registration, or use of public areas, such as a forum. Slash Sensei™ does not supply identifying information to other companies, or use such information for its own purposes including but not limited to email newsletters, unless the user “opts-in” for such purposes by specifically allowing usage. (Identifying information must necessarily be used when notifying a user of the requested information, such as notification of a winning entry in a contest or sweepstakes.) Slash Sensei™ is not responsible for any actions or policies of such companies.
Slash Sensei™ uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to us secure. However, Slash Sensei™ is not responsible for any breach of security. If a user of Slash Sensei™ knowingly provides personal information, such as a name or email address, in a forum or other public service, that user should be aware that the information provided can be collected and used by third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Slash Sensei™.
By accessing Slash Sensei™ and providing us with the requested personal information, you consent to the collection and use of this information in accordance with this policy.
Changes to Our Policies
Slash Sensei™ reserves the right to change this policy at any time. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
