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.
Here are the guidelines I operate under here at the Shedking website:
I am never paid to do a review. I never accept money to review a product or service. I invest my own time to review and test products. I pay out of my own pocket the cost to produce all audio and/or video I record about products.
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.
No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made on this website/blog.
These are good rules and practices in todays digital world. Its important for you to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer or service provider.
If you dont see a disclosure policy on a blog, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
The opinions on the Shedking website and any our Associates may not necessarily reflect the views of the owners of the products I review. This website/blog is a separate entity.
As always I appreciate your contributions to this site - whether its sharing your feedback, reading an article or the newsletter or providing your ideas and wisdom in the various comment sections. If you find a product on this site that you like, and you buy it through my link, I receive a small commission. If you go directly to the product website, and not through my link, I do not receive any compensation.
