Sponsorship & Editorial Policies

Floridian Social does not accept compensation for regular, non-sponsored editorial coverage, nor do we participate in link referral programs. We do accept and display compensation for banner ads ("Sponsors") and for posts that we receive compensation for are designated as such ("Sponsored Posts"). And, although we carefully handpick all of the vendors and venues in our guide ("Faves"), we receive compensation for listing them.

Images & Content

Our original content and images are copyright Floridian Social, all rights reserved. Feel free to link to our posts and pages, but please contact us before re-publishing images and/or quoting our content in your site or publication. All other images are copyright by their respective authors. We ask that you contact the author if you would like to use their work, as we can not provide that authorization to you on their behalf. We make every effort to obtain permission for and to provide appropriate credit to authors of images we feature, but if you believe we have misused an image that you own, please contact us and we will take it down.

Comments

We welcome your comments and discussions on our blog. We reserve the right to remove or moderate any comment at any time without notice, and will do so when a comment contains SPAM, is rude or offensive, or is intended to advertise a product or service. We also reserve the right to approve comments before they are posted.

Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously. Floridian Social will never share your personal information without your consent with anyone except to comply with the law.

In order to comment on our site, you must provide your name and email address. Again, we will never disclose this information unless required by law.

Like most websites, we also collect 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. From time to time, we may release summarized non-personally-identifying information, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, you should set your browser to refuse cookies before using our website. Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.

We also use third party advertisements on Floridian Social to support our site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites). To opt out of information collection by Google through the AdSense program, visit this page. Or, you can visit the National Advertising Initiative to opt-out of this and other ad networks using these technologies.

We may also use DART cookies for ad serving through Google or other networks. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by Google by visiting the advertising opt-out page. DART uses non-personally-identifiable information - it does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this ad serving on all sites using this advertising by visiting the Double Click opt-out page.
