Advertising/ Disclosure Policy

DISCLOSURE POLICY:

Dear Readers, P.R. Firms, and Companies:

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. I take pride in giving my honest opinion and assessment of all the products that are submitted to me and experiences I may be given. I reserve the right to opt out of publishing a review if I do not feel that I can be fair about my opinion.

Please note that this blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and/ or other forms of compensation. It is important to me that I point out, that I am not paid to review products. However, I do receive products free of charge to try out and may be compensated with gifts from companies after reviews are published. I will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.

I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. Compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

This blog may or may not contain content which might present a conflict of interest. The views and opinions expressed in this blog are purely mine. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my experiences, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
