The owner reserves the right to remove what she considers inflammatory, disrespectful, hate speech or other rudeness. You recognise unkind behaviour and so do I, so let’s be adults, who can disagree without making personal attacks. Yes, passive-aggressive behaviour is included in stuff that I can make go kaboom from blog comment sections, if I so desire. I should say let’s be mature adults just to make it clear, so stay on topic to avoid get censored.

On Pinterest, you may pin the main, featured image as long as you link to the correct blog post. On your blog, you may use the featured image in round-ups and similar, as long as you link to the correct blog post. You don’t need written consent for this. Please use no-pin code such that visitors don’t pin from your website and I will return the favour to ensure sources are credited properly. Pinterest is too much of a Wild West as is, so let’s encourage visitors to go to the source instead of being selfish in their pinning by choosing the quick solution. Thank you for understanding and for your cooperation.
Letters to the Editor sent in public, including comments and tweets, may be used in public by Nina Martin, when quoted correctly. Private messages will under most circumstances be kept confidential (re-read Anne Lamott’s quote if you like).
- User statistics including country of origin and IP address is collected via third-party software (WP Statistics plugin at time of writing). It is used for the purpose of bettering products and services offered only.
- An email address is required to comment on blog posts, but in plain speak I have no interest in stalking you. If something seems spammy, I’ll delete the stuff, and if you’re an average nice person, it’s merely to show that you aren’t up to evil stuff when you hand over your calling card aka email address. I do the same on other websites and consider it normal practice.
- For you to end up on my actual email list, also called newsletter, you will have to actively opt in. As part of the emails sent to you then will be an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email. Merely commenting somewhere on the website does not add you to the email list (which would also be illegal).
- If you subscribe to my newsletter, I’ll use your email address and name to send the emails to you, but as far as keeping track of your doings goes, statistics would be used only for example to avoid re-sending information about a particular e-course you already enrolled in. Re-sending you what you already have signed up for, paid for even, is something I concider spam due to bad management of information. Emails are managed by a third-party service, ConvertKit in the United States.
- I am not responsible for how third-party services used in statistics and emailing management are using your information.
- Enrolling in one of my courses, or signing up for my coaching service, doesn’t automatically put you on an email list. I hate that. I reserve the right to send relevant information to course participants and coaching clients, but relevant means directly tied somehow to the course or coaching session(s).
- If you buy something in the web shop, contact details collected via PayPal will be stored for bookkeeping/tax purposes as long as authorities demand it. If the product is a digital product (including an e-course), under EU law I will have to store your details securely for ten years. It will be forgotten about and looked at again only if tax people demand so. I will keep it only because I was told to, and to the best of my abilities it will certainly not be passed on to anyone else.
- I only use PayPal in the web shop as payment method, which means I will never gain access to your credit card number. I seriously don’t want it either.
- Comments on blog posts are public and submitted voluntarily to my website. Private details such as the email address will not be passed on, but I reserve the right to use your comment, if quoted properly, elsewhere on the website.
- For your comments to end up in the testimonials of products and services, you will actively opt in, and even then it’s a general blurb made public. You can choose name and title/profession to your own liking, even when I would have been made aware of it in full.
- I don’t use third-party services to store sensitive data, other than what has been directly collected via services used. Backups including bookkeeping are handled offline.
- The mere thought of selling or giving your information to a spam list is repulsive. Spam needs to go away yesterday.
- I am not responsible for the privacy practices of my blog commenters.
My disclosure statement:
- Currently, I’m not receiving compensation of any sort for publishing the content on my website. If I endorse a product or service, it is because I like using it.
- I have no agreements with sponsors, brands or companies.

And now that you’ve read all this legal blah, why don’t you head over to the blog for something less heavy to read. Thanks so much for wading through all of it, it’s much appreciated!
