Who we are
Our website address is https://thekikkiedit.com.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We do not share your data with any external parties.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
What third parties we receive data from
When you sign up to our newsletter, you are agreeing to save your First Name, Last Name and Email Address so that we can contact you on a monthly basis regarding website updates, exclusive content and bonus tidbits.
Affiliates & Samples
Some links on The Kikki Edit may contain affiliate links. This means that if you click on a link, go through to the retailer and purchase an item, I will receive a small percentage of your purchase (please note: this is at no additional cost to you).
Adding affiliate links into a post is always the last step I do after the review has been written and with my opinion on the product already formed. From 6th January 2020 affiliate links will be followed by a ‘*’ after the link.
The Kikki Edit features products I’ve purchased myself and gifted items, although I am not obliged to feature the latter. It is at my discretion. Some products may also be purchased with an influencer discount. From 6th January 2020, items that I have been gifted and I write about will be followed by ‘(gifted)’.
I only recommend products that I genuinely love and would recommend to a friend, but I can’t guarantee that everything will work on all skin types. Please take into account your own skin type and allergies and wherever possible test products out yourself before purchasing.
Adverts & Sponsorships
It’s a rare occurrence, but I may accept sponsored content on TheKikkiEdit, which means that I am financially compensated to publish a campaign or article. Any feature that TheKikkiEdit has been remunerated for will feature ‘(AD)’ in the title and will be clearly marked ‘This is a Paid for Advertisement by X’ as the first line of the post. I only ever work with brands that I love on campaigns and features that I feel are relevant for TheKikkiEdit.
Everything on TheKikkiEdit has been created by me (Keerthana Kethies) unless otherwise stated. Please do not use any photos or content without asking for my permission. You can contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
