PRIVACY POLICY

We do not share personal information with third-parties nor do we store information we collect about your visit to this blog for use other than to analyze content performance through the use of cookies, which you can disable at any time via your Internet browser’s settings. We are not responsible for the republishing of the content found on this blog or other websites or media without our permission. This privacy policy is subject to change without notice.

REVIEW POLICY

We are event bloggers, not style review bloggers. Review copies of items should never be solicited, in any manner, by an individual representing Seraphim. If you are contacted by a member of our team for review copies pertaining to Seraphim event coverage, please contact Delicate Flower (awylder1) or Heidi Halberstadt immediately, or e-mail us at contact@seraphimsl.com. If at any time you are contacted by an individual claiming to be a Seraphim team member who is not listed on our team page, please also contact the owners immediately.

PROMOTIONAL COVERAGE

Events are considered for coverage based upon the availability of our blogging team as well as the average interest of the Seraphim readers based upon historical statistics of event, genre and participating designers. Please allow a minimum of four to six weeks advance notice when applying for event coverage. For promotion of in-store sales, hunts, yardsales, event portal listings and inclusion in the weekly list of freebies and deals, we strongly recommend a minimum advance notice of seven days. To apply for event coverage, please use the corresponding form found on our contact page by clicking here.

Recurring events must occur more frequently than once every six months. It is not necessary to apply for each round of a recurring event. If an event recurs on a regular schedule and we agree to provide promotional coverage, it is assumed we will provide coverage for each opening of the event. One-time events are those which recur every six months or longer (such as annual events), or are one-time fairs or expositions.

Events may be declined for a myriad of reasons. Please direct all inquiries of this regard to Delicate Flower (awylder1) or Heidi Halberstadt. If an event is declined, a minimum of six months must pass before an event will be reconsidered for promotional coverage. Any individual that uses aggressive or threatening language, or harasses any member of the Seraphim team, will be permanently banned from promotional opportunities and will have an abuse report submitted to Linden Labs.

Please note:

  • Due to the increased risk associated with Intellectual Property violations, Seraphim does not provide promotional coverage for art-only events.
  • Due to the increased risk associated with fund misappropriation, Seraphim does not provide promotional coverage of charity events benefiting one individual or group of individuals.  Seraphim proudly supports charity events that benefit an established charitable/not-for-profit organization.

MERCHANDISE REPRESENTATION

If an item is not readily available, able to be purchased, and clearly marked in the case of exclusive items, it may not be represented in the gallery.  In the case of a designer not being properly set up at the time of an event opening, Seraphim bloggers will list a designer as MIA in the post introduction, except in special circumstances based upon requests of the event management team.  While we do make every attempt to include all pertinent merchandise in a gallery post, late items will be added as time permits.

In the best interest of Seraphim readers, items that are clearly marked for use with mesh bodies and mesh body parts will be indicated as such in the description.  Because the mesh body and mesh body part market is ever-evolving, it is inefficient for Seraphim bloggers to list every brand name an item may be compatible with.  Instead, we define compatibility as follows:

  • Applier compatible – Item is an applier HUD that is two dimensional and adheres directly to the mesh body and/or mesh body part.
  • Mesh body compatible – Item is a three dimensional item and is specifically designed for a mesh body and/or mesh body part.
  • No mention of compatibility – Item is sold on system layers or is mesh that can be worn with or without a mesh body or mesh body parts.

For further information about the details of mesh compatibility, and for an informational video, please refer to Kirsten Corleone’s blog post found here.

All information posted on the Seraphim website must adhere to the Second Life/Linden Labs Terms of Service. Events and/or items that are in violation of the TOS will not be featured on the site. For more information about the parameters determined by Linden Labs in regards to intellectual property use click here.

Due to the adult nature of certain events, some content may not be suitable to all readers. Please explore galleries with caution. Seraphim is not responsible for content displayed or sold at specific events. Highly offensive content may be omitted from event coverage at the discretion of Seraphim’s owners.

COMMENT POLICY

Comments are welcomed and encouraged on this site, but there are some instances where comments will be edited or deleted as follows:

  • Comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam. Including a link to relevant content is permitted, but should be relevant to the post topic.
  • Comments including profanity
  • Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive
  • Comments that attack a person or their views
  • Comments that provide no value to the post/conversation

We reserve the right to delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice, or to edit comments where we feel a valid point is made but where the submitter also crosses a line. This comment policy is subject to change at anytime.

PROBLEM RESOLUTION

If you feel that a policy or method that Seraphim and/or its bloggers practice should be reconsidered or changed, please contact Delicate Flower (awylder1) or Heidi Halberstadt, ONLY! Bloggers should not be contacted directly as they are only following Seraphim instructions and policies. We will be more than happy to address any issues or concerns you may have.

ARCHIVES

To keep Seraphim running quickly and efficiently, posts will be kept for 3 months before being permanently deleted.
