Disclosure & Privacy Policy

Sorry for all the legal mumbo-jumbo, but I have to have it to make sure my site is all up to code and that YOU, my lovely dear readers, are informed. 🙂

First off, all opinions & thoughts shared on this blog are my own (unless otherwise stated) and I will only ever share with you my honest, sincere opinions.  Everything you take from my blog (whether it be a free printable or a piece of advice) comes with a “do so at your own risk” policy.  I do NOT SELL or claim ownership over the character clipart, graphics, or characters that may appear on my blog or printables; they belong to their respective copyright owners.

This blog takes an extraordinary amount of time to write & maintain (like, for serious, I had no idea what I was getting myself into) so I am always looking for creative & effective ways to monetize this site without inconveniencing YOU, my readers!  Many of my outbound links are affiliate links, which means I earn a small commission if you purchase something through the link.  I sometimes use referral links, write sponsored posts, or advertise on social media.  All links & ads are clearly marked as such.  Sometimes I get paid just for you visiting the site and seeing the ad; other times it is based on your click or purchase.  Whether I earn a commission or not off of your purchase does NOT affect the price you pay. All my free printables & downloads are for your personal parties or events only, please respect that 🙂 If you are unsure about using my photos or designs for something feel free to ask: partylikeacherry@gmail.com.  Usually it is fine as long as you are not using it for profitable gain and give me credit.  Thank you so much for supporting Party Like a Cherry through your visits and clicks on ads and affiliate or referral links. You keep the partying going 😉
