At Yellow Brick Home, your privacy is very important, and we never sell your personal information. In our corner of the web, we want you to feel snug and cozy. Here’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know about how we use your data and keep you safe, and you can always reach out to us with questions.
Our Brand Policy
We hope that you find our virtual home an inspiring place to gather ideas, and we enjoy sharing with you; after all, you inspire us, too. We ask that if you reference Yellow Brick Home using our photos or articles that you credit them with the original link to the post. All the photography on our site has been taken by us unless otherwise stated.
Yellow Brick Home encourages discussion, but we reserve the right to monitor all incoming comments. Over-the-top offensive feedback, spam and self-promotional spam are subject to deletion, as we want to nurture a place that keeps things fun, light and lively. We will never share your information without your consent, or in the case that you’ve entered and won a sponsored giveaway, we will first ask your permission to provide said sponsor with a contact email and mailing address (if necessary).
From time to time, we are compensated to partner with sponsors, and some links may contain affiliates, meaning, when you click on a link and make a purchase, we make a small commission. Giveaways and gifted items will always be noted within the body of the post. That being said, content on Yellow Brick Home will only promote brands and companies that we would genuinely use ourselves or have used ourselves.
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 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.
Speaking of Cookies…

AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
