TERMS AND CONDITIONS

BY VISITING THEDELIBERATEMOM.COM YOU ARE CONSENTING TO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

These terms and conditions can be hard to read. We tried to summarize each section (summaries are in italics). This does not absolve you from reading the entire terms and conditions… it’s simply done to reinforce our policies and to help you discern what you’ve read.

OVERVIEW

The Deliberate Mom is a Canadian website and an independently operated blog subject to the laws of Canada. This website was not created to serve, nor does it actively market to residents of the EU (European Union).

The terms, “I”, “we”, “us” and “our” refer to THE DELIBERATE MOM. The term “Site” refers to THEDELIBERATEMOM.COM.

The term “Shop” refers to the shop section of THEDELIBERATEMOM.COM. The terms “user”, “you” and “your” refer to site visitors, customers, and any other users of the site.

THE DELIBERATE MOM is a blog where users can read articles about parenting tips, encouragement, homemaking, faith, and additional resources (the “Content”). We also sell digital goods (the “Products”) related to our content. The aforementioned will herein be referred to as the “Service”.

Use of THE DELIBERATE MOM, including all materials presented herein, is subject to the following Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions apply to all site visitors, customers, and all other users of the site.

By using the Site or Service, you agree to these Terms and Conditions, without modification, and acknowledge reading them.

  • We’re Canadian and do not actively market to EU residents.
  • We want you to know what all these pronouns are in our policies.

USE OF THE SITE AND SERVICE

Information provided on the Site are subject to change. THE DELIBERATE MOM makes no representation or warranty that the information provided, regardless of its source (the “Content”), is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. THE DELIBERATE MOM disclaims all liability for any inaccuracy, error, or incompleteness in the Content. If you find an error in any of our content, you are welcome to contact us. We make the final decision whether or not we will correct the error.

This site runs 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Access to THE DELIBERATE MOM may be temporarily or permanently suspended and without notice at my own discretion, due to updates or technical issues beyond my control. We will not be liable if for any reason the website is unavailable for any period of time.

  • I’m bound to misspell words or a website may go off-line (which means there’s a dead link). We invite you to report any errors you find in our content, but we may or may not correct said errors. For example, since I’m Canadian, I use British spelling for words like “colour” and “centre”. If you write me to tell me these words are spelled wrong, I won’t be changing them. 
  • Access to this site may be temporarily or permanently suspended.
  • Sometimes our site goes offline due to technical issues.
  • We try to resolve technical conditions as soon as possible.
  • We aren’t liable for your use of this site being interrupted or suspended.

PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS

We host all of our products through third-party sellers (i.e. Amazon, Etsy, Gumroad, Payhip, etc.). We have chosen to sell our products this way because the safety and security of your payment information is of the utmost importance. As a small independent, self-publishing website, we can not invest in a robust payment system to be housed within our own site. This is why we have selected reputable 3rd party sellers to host our products.

Be aware that when you purchase a product from us through their site, you are subject to their terms and services. It is your responsibility to read and agree to those terms.

Our digital products are non-refundable. Please be aware of this BEFORE you make a purchase. However, if you are unhappy with your purchase, you are more than welcome to contact us as your input could help us improve the product if we choose to revise it in the future.

  • When you purchase a product, you will be taken to a secure off-site location to make your purchase. These are reputable sites which have been in operation for years (i.e. Amazon, Etsy, Gumroad, PayPal, etc.)
  • By using and purchasing from these sites, you agree to their terms & services.
  • Refunds are not issued for our digital products. You are welcome to contact us if you have any feedback or questions.
