Leaving your name (which is the only information shown) and/or email address allows me to quickly filter out genuine comments more quickly and will only be used to contact you if you solely request it. The check box for saving your name, email or website is a cookie which is stored for a year.

Your details are never passed on to a third party.

Any harmful or rude comments will be removed from this site immediately. My Family Of Roses welcomes ideas and /or feedback.

Links to other websites

We may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that site.

We have a few ads running on this site. Some of our advertisers occasionally serve you cookies as well. We do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers. We use advertising service vendors, such as Google adsense, to help present advertisement on this site. These vendors may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to provide you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on this site and other sites you have visited, to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements.

In doing so, these vendors may collect non-personal data such as your browser type, your operating system, web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other clicksteam data.

The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by these advertising service vendors is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours; therefore, you and we hereby agree that we have no liability in connection with the actions of advertisers or vendors.


On occasions My Family Of Roses hosts a blog competition. Within the competition we use a third party, Gleam, to collect the information required throughout the duration. Usual requirements are to leave a comment on a post and the use of social media to share your entry in the giveaway. However, the data collected is for the sole purpose of the giveaway and is only used to contact the winner(s) once the competition has ended. All data stored with the third party during the duration period is then deleted.

Social Sharing Buttons

At the bottom of each page you may have noticed My Family Of Roses social sharing buttons. These buttons allows you as the reader to share that particular post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, in email and on StumbleUpon. However, cookies maybe stored and recorded if you do so. These cookies provide data for My Family Of Roses to track where a particular post has been shared and no other data is recorded. Therefore, if you choose to share a particular post you agree that you are aware that in doing so, where you share it maybe viewable to My Family Of Roses.
