Content and Image Use Policy

All text, images, and other content that are part of this blog are the property of Comfy Cozy Home, unless otherwise noted. All material is copyright protected.

I love working with supportive and collaborative creators in the blogging community and I appreciate features and shares of my content within the following guidelines. Full blog posts or tutorials can not be reprinted without my express written consent. 

You may share a single photo, so long as the following requirements are met:

  • No collaged images, or images with text overlays may be featured
  • All features must explicitly give credit to ComfyCozyHome.com together with a link back to the original content (not just to the homepage). Credit must be stated immediately before or after the photo.
  • The no-pin code must be used to prevent the image from being pinned to Pinterest from your site. 
  • A one to two sentence summary from a post may be included with the photo, but no text may be directly copied, and the project steps, supplies, and/or sources may not be disclosed.  
  • Photos should be kept in their original state. Watermarks {if any} may not be cropped out, and the photo may not be edited in any way, without express permission. 

Failure to comply with these policies constitutes copyright infringement.

Printables, Checklists, etc. are for personal use only and may not be sold. If you would like to feature one of my free resources, you may use one photo or image of the free resource with credit to ComfyCozyHome.com and a link to the specific post on my site where the download link can be found. You may not provide a direct link to the resource file.

Any and all content on this website is created for inspiration purposes only. Following advice or creating with my suggestions, products used, and tools is at your own risk. Please always use safety precautions when performing a DIY project and using building materials or products, always read and follow manufacturer’s directions for the products and tools you use, and receive professional guidance when necessary.
