Terms And Conditions

All photographs that are created by me will be identified by a watermark “I’m a little green.com” all others will be either purchased from a reputable stock photo house or credited to the actual photographer. All recipes have been both created and tested by me or I will identify and credit the actual source of the recipe material. All original recipes and photographs are copyrighted under Imalittlegreen.com.

If you would like to use one of my photographs, please send me at email to Debra@imalittlegreen.com to get approval before re-posting. Also please note that I do not allow both photographs and recipes to be published together on any website.

From time to time, on our “Things We Love” page and in blog articles, I will review products or events to share my opinions with my readers. I also occasionally accept products from companies to try for free. When I write about a product that was provided to me, I always make it clear in the post and provide an honest and an accurate reflection of my thoughts and feelings of the product. If I do not like a product I will state that in the review or will not post a review on the blog. There are times when I will accept compensation for sponsored posts. This will be made clear in the post and will be linked back to this policy. I occasionally use Affiliate Links that may not be disclosed in individual posts.
I follow the FTC rules for sponsored content. You can read more about these policies on the FTC website.
