Affiliate Compensation Disclosure
This policy is valid from 1 August 2020
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact me via the website.
This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, I always give honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
The content of this blog is a source of income for me and therefore may be used to promote products, services, or other businesses.
I will only choose to promote products/services/businesses that I have, in fact, used and that I feel will be beneficial to you, the reader. Products provided to me by my advertising partners for my review are given to us free of charge with no cost to ourselves. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
I will always give my genuine opinion about a product or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so. My number one priority is accuracy and fairness to you, the reader, and I would never compromise the truth at the expense of my integrity. Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of this blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.
I hold myself to the highest standards of integrity. I only share what I truly recommend. Any affiliate links make generate a small profit to compensate myself for my time, research, and ideas. I love and appreciate my readers and wouldn’t steer you wrong intentionally!
