Hello Dear Readers,
My goal at Relationship Resources is to provide useful and inspiring information. As I work hard to build this website, I will be approached by vendors and other entities who want to sponsor my posts. With that in mind, I am legally bound to disclose this information to you.
I will accept advertising and participate in various affiliate programs, which provide income as they become available (I will update this policy when they do).
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
I only promote products that I personally use or can recommend without hesitation. When I mention that a link is an affiliate link this means sometimes I recommend a product or service and if you choose to purchase that product or service via my recommendation, I will get a small referral commission.
Of course, this is at no extra cost to you but is a portion of income I may receive to help keep the blog running.
Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
This privacy statement reviews how I collect and use the personal information you provide on my website, chuckstarnes.com. It also outlines the options available to you with regards to my use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information.
The privacy of visitors on chuckstarnes.com is important to me. Like massively, super important!
And it is recognized that the privacy of your personal information is also important. Therefore, please be reassured that your personal information will never be sold to third parties.
For subscribers who receive emails from me
I use MailChimp, a professional, secure and notable email marketing company that allows me to track interaction, manage unsubscribes and access our data for lawful compliance.
If you are on my email list it is because I am personally acquainted with you and feel the content provided is relevant to you, or you opted in to the list of your own accord.
However, you are also free to unsubscribe (opt out) whenever you like. On the emails I send you from MailChimp, you will see a button at the bottom of the email to unsubscribe. Or, you may contact me any time at: [email protected] and I can do it for you.
If you do unsubscribe, you will never be contacted again from this site for any reason, with these exceptions:
- You purchased a product and are being sent an update.
- You sent me an email requiring an answer.
- As required by law such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process.
- When I believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
For Readers who purchase digital products or personal services through this website
I work with PayPal. They do keep on record only the information necessary to ensure that you receive your products. This is for your protection, as well as mine. PayPal, I am assuming, is in strict compliance with the GDPR laws that go into effect on May 25, 2018.
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files.

Cookies and Web Beacons
I plan to use third party advertisements on chuckstarnes.com to support the site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on this 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 San Jose real estate ads to someone in San Jose, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
