If you do not wish to agree to these terms, please refrain from using the Site.

Disclosure

HowtheLook.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com

Please assume that all links to Amazon are tied to our affiliate account. We use Amazon as our main shopping platform simply because of its ease of use and wide range of product.

Advertising is available in many shapes and forms from sidebar graphics to sponsored posts. We also include links to affiliate sites when talking about a certain product that you might find of use on your upcoming lives. Most of the time, the affiliate links will be specified by something similar to, “Buy Product”[Black Button] on product page.

We only make small commissions through our affiliate links if you click through and then decide to purchase within a specified time-frame. These commissions come at no extra charge to you. While we pride ourselves on honest buying guides and are happy to introduce readers to new plus size products, ultimately, the decision to buy lies with the purchaser and HowtheLook will assume no responsibility for potential issues with said products.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, HowtheLook collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. HowtheLook’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how HowtheLook’s visitors use its website. From time to time, HowtheLook may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

HowtheLook also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on HowtheLook.com blogs/sites. HowtheLook only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to HowtheLook’s websites choose to interact with HowtheLook in ways that require HowtheLook to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that HowtheLook gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at HowtheLook.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with HowtheLook are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, HowtheLook collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with HowtheLook. HowtheLook does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

HowtheLook may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. HowtheLook may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, HowtheLook does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

HowtheLook discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on HowtheLook’s behalf or to provide services available at HowtheLook’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using HowtheLook’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. HowtheLook will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, HowtheLook discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when HowtheLook believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of HowtheLook, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an HowtheLook website and have supplied your email address, HowtheLook may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with HowtheLook and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. HowtheLook takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
