To keep my reviews independent and free of conflicts of interest, my personal policies for reviews are:
- This blog receives no payment or other compensation for advertising.
- This blog receives no payment or other compensation for reviews of products or services.
- If I did not pay full retail price for a product being reviewed, I will explicitly state that in the review.
- Unless explicitly stated, I have no affiliation or relationship with the supplier of a product being reviewed.
- Acceptance of a free sample does not guarantee a review. I follow a "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" rule of thumb. If I like a product, I'll review it. If not, I'm not going to embarrass a supplier.
