Disclosures + PR

This policy is valid from 19 May 2010  

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by Shandell. For questions about this blog, please contact me by email.  

I, the owner of this blog, may be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I may receive compensation for posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my 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.  

I may also choose to review products for no compensation except the receipt of the product itself. Again, I will only give my honest opinions on these topics or products.

Products sent for review will be shipped at the company’s expense and will not be returned unless otherwise agreed upon. Reviews will be posted within an appropriate timeframe given the nature of the product and the time needed to give an accurate and thorough opinion based on use.

Giveaways offered will be shipped from the retailer directly to the winner. Shipping costs will always be covered by the sender unless the prize is a store credit. Additional terms will be discussed by email correspondence.

Additionally, this blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

This blog is the property of Shandell. Content, including photos should not be used without permission. Damages will be pursued if this policy is ignored. Please email me if you would like permission to quote anything published here.
