Here, for your reading pleasure, are Vacationearing’s legal policies and disclosures. Basically, I won’t mislead or lie to you for financial profit, and I won’t do anything unethical, illegal, or creepy with your information. In exchange, please don’t steal my content or blame me if you have a bad experience on your vacation (although I’m truly sorry if that happens).
E-Dekk Enterprises owns the copyright to this blog. All Disney artwork and properties are © Disney. Please note that we are in no way part of, endorsed or authorized by, or affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its affiliates. Visit Disney’s official web site at Disney.com.
The opinions I express here are just that: opinions. I do my best to be accurate, but things change. Please double-check the information I provide so any errors don’t ruin your vacation. In other (more complicated) words, the information I provide is on an as-is basis. I make no representations as to accuracy, completeness, currentness, suitability, or validity of any information on this blog and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its use.
I started this blog because I like talking about Disney World, but I also hope to earn a little income from it. (I’m a poor grad student and freelancer, you see.) That means that I will accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. I’m telling you this because I thought you should know and because of the FTC Ruling for Bloggers.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
I am not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. I only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my experience, are worthy of such endorsement. These endorsements may be accompanied by affiliate links that provide me a small commission on any purchases you make. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
If you have any questions about this policy, please email erica(at)vacationearing.com. This policy was last modified on October 17, 2011.

How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We may use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
