The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I have between a product manufacturer or service provider when I write about a product or service. According to the FTC Guidelines that go into effect on December 1, 2009, I would like to state that the Amazon and sponsor ads shown on this site provide affiliate revenue to me as the site owner. If I create a link to a product or service in a review, sometimes I may get paid a commission if you purchase the product or service. These links are included after posts are written, and posts are never composed for the purpose of including advertising.
I am also a member of BzzAgent and Harlequin Ambassadors and receive occasional samples of books or other products through their programs. I will mention receipt of books or products that I was given when the review is posted, but I am never paid to do a review. I never accept money to review a book, product, or service.
No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.
These are good rules and practices in today’s digital world. It’s important for you to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer or service provider. If you don’t see a disclosure policy on a blog, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
