Privacy Policy and Disclosure Statement

Hello from Lillie, creator of! Running this website and is one of my life’s great joys, but it can get expensive due to costs from my monthly web-hosting, tech support, and more.

To offset these costs, my two sites contain some affiliate links, which means if you purchase a product through them, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. For example, I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide bloggers with a means to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. Per FTC guidelines, all affiliate links are clearly labeled as such to dispel confusion, and I aim to only link to items and services that don’t stink (and in fact, are fabulous and provide great deals).

I also use a display ad network in which third-party companies serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit

So what does this mean for your information? Your privacy is very important to me, and I will not misuse any information that is collected. With regards to my sites, if you leave a comment, the email address and the name you provide are on file, but I will not exploit or sell them in any way. If you choose to subscribe to my monthly newsletter, you will remain on that list until you choose to unsubscribe. Easy! For affiliate links, the partner businesses will keep the information needed to process your order, and may use cookies so that, for example, if you choose not to buy the product the first time you click, but buy it ten days later, I may still get the commission (at not extra cost to you). The length of time for affiliate cookies varies depending on the partner, but usually does not exceed 30 days. Mmm… cookies.

None of your information will be shared with third parties. Teaching Traveling may very rarely use your e-mail address in the future to contact you regarding the site, however, an opt-out will always be provided. Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment, however, your e-mail address and privacy will always be kept secure.

What about the general safety of this site? As a germaphobe, I work very hard not to get people sick, and I do not wish to make your computer sick, either. Given this, I have paid top dollar for the best web security partners, and my two sites use SSL software and are regularly scanned to prevent and destroy malware. Yippee for safety!

I hope this Privacy Policy and Disclosure statement has been useful. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at TeachingTraveling at gmail.
