Our website

We built this website using Squarespace. Here's a link to their general privacy policy.

Any comments you publish on our posts will be approved by admin before going live. Please carefully consider what you write, as this will be public. For example, if you comment to say that you love collecting bottle tops, you may find that any friends of yours that read that comment might start saving bottle tops for you. 

Squarespace collects basic data about every visitor we have via cookies, but it is anonymised. For example, we know that most of our readership access the site from the UK, but we also have fans in every continent except Antarctica. We use this data to bring readers more of what they like best, based on which posts get the most views and engagements.

We cannot be responsible for the content on any of the sites we link to. That said, we will only link to sites that we think may be of genuine interest or that relate to topics we cover.  

We want to ensure that Yay Every Day maintains its integrity and that readers can trust what they read and see on here. For this reason, we carefully curate what we publish. This means that we only post things that we think will be of genuine interest to readers.

From time to time, we are sent free items from brands, companies and PR companies, and we are sometimes invited on press trips. If we mention any items or places in our posts, you can be sure that what you read is our honest opinion based on actual use of the product or experience. We know this might annoy or disappoint the people who send us on trips or send us things, but our loyalties lie with our readers.

Furthermore, we disclose whether we have been paid to feature or mention a particular brand or product Note that the same rules apply; you could pay us all the money you want, but we're not going to mislead our readers.
