I use MailerLite to send you emails, and as such, the contact information you share with The Hoot & Howl will also be shared with this service.  MailerLite’s privacy policy states that it uses your information to help me “monitor lists, content and response data” and they will “never share, sell or rent your customer data”.  For more information on MailerLite’s privacy policy, go here.

I do my best to research and provide you with the best information possible, however I am not offering professional advice and services.  I do not provide any medical, legal, religious, psychological or any other form of professional advice.  If you require these sort of services, please seek out a professional.

I will occasionally link to sources outside of my website, and therefore outside of my control.

However, I am not responsible for the content or privacy policies of these sites, and it is your responsibility to navigate responsibly.

These links (while not limited to) may include affiliate links. This means I have partnered with another company or organization to promote their products and/or services.
