Disclosure Policy

This policy is valid from 20 September 2007 (Updated 11 December 2007)

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, with the occasional contribution by my brother (which has not occurred as of 9/20/2007). This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will usually be identified as paid or sponsored content, unless specified by the advertiser. (I know that's pretty dodgy, but we'll avoid such posts as much as possible.) Posts of this nature will often show a Disclosure Policy badge and/or will link to our Disclosure Policy page:

The owner(s) of this blog is directly 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, we always give our 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.

Affiliate store links do not constitute direct compensation in the same way as sponsored posts, but rather the profits from these links are conditional by the nature of this form of website monetization.

This blog does contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content will always be identified.
