Unexpected Elegance, P.O. Box 114, Pendleton, IN 46064; contact (at) angela@unexpectedelegance (dot) com. (Please excuse the fragmented formatting of my email address, it is just to make sure actual people email instead of marketing programs scanning for email addresses.)
Sale of Business or Assets
In the event that the Site or substantially all of its assets is sold or disposed of as a going concern, whether by merger, sale of assets or otherwise, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, the information we have collected about you may be one of the assets sold or merged in connection with that transaction.
All posts will be made by me and all opinions contained in any page or post are mine unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Unexpected Elegance may receive payment or products from time to time to supplement posts, but this will never influence what I write and I will disclose if I have received any such compensation to you, my dear readers. I do this because I care about my readership and I want to be completely open and honest with you (oh, and also I’m required by federal law to make those disclosures.)
