Sponsored Content + Advertising Policies
Cleaver’s Market™ is made possible by sponsorship and ads from our partners. We accept a few different types of advertisements and sponsorship but are extremely selective in the vendors and brands we choose to work with. The integrity of our website is far more important than money, so know that we only accept sponsorship requests from companies that we truly believe are right for the site and for our readers. With that in mind, please know that we do publish sponsored posts on the site, which are clearly noted as such, but we also sometimes choose to organically promote brands and products that we truly love and find to be of value to our readers.
To be clear, any time Cleaver’s Market™ accepts money for promoting a product or vendor, we will disclose it. All sponsored posts are clearly indicated as such at the beginning of the blog post, all of which are personally written by our team. At times, work from Cleaver’s Market™ sponsors will be featured in real weddings and other features; however, unless specifically disclosed as a sponsored post, these features and links are solely based upon the quality of the work and are not paid editorial content. Sponsorship does not in any way guarantee editorial coverage, and sponsors do not receive any preference with regard to editorial consideration.
Advertisements on the site are clearly noted as “sponsors”, or “partners” or “featured vendors.” For more information about advertising on Cleaver’s Market™, please visit our advertising page. More information about the Vendor Guide is available here.
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Cleaver’s Market™ respects each individual user’s right to privacy. Cleaver’s Market™ and its sites do not collect personal identifying information unless such information is specifically and knowingly provided from users during contests, surveys, sweepstakes, giveaways, site registration, or use of public areas, such as a forum. Cleaver’s Market™ does not supply identifying information to other companies, or use such information for its own purposes including but not limited to email newsletters, unless the user “opts-in” for such purposes by specifically allowing usage. (Identifying information must necessarily be used when notifying a user of the requested information, such as notification of a winning entry in a contest or sweepstakes.) Cleaver’s Market™ is not responsible for any actions or policies of such companies.
Cleaver’s Market™ uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to us secure. However, Cleaver’s Market™ is not responsible for any breach of security. If a user of Cleaver’s Market™ knowingly provides personal information, such as a name or email address, in a forum or other public service, that user should be aware that the information provided can be collected and used by third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Cleaver’s Market™.
By accessing Cleaver’s Market™ and providing us with the requested personal information, you consent to the collection and use of this information in accordance with this policy.
While we do our best to vet and verify all the companies and vendors that we choose to work with, The Cleaver’s Market™ makes no endorsement or guarantee of any wedding vendor or company listed on this site. Publication in features or advertisements on this site does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement by Cleaver’s Market™. Just like we cannot guarantee that it won’t rain on your wedding day, we also cannot guarantee that every vendor will do a perfect job on your wedding day. Please do your due diligence and thoroughly research any and all vendors before signing contracts, paying deposits, purchasing items, etc.
Changes to Our Policies
The Cleaver’s Market™ reserves the right to change this policy at any time. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
