FTC Disclosure Statements

As the owner/sponsor of this site/blog we have the full intention to be compliant with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules about the use of testimonials and endorsements in advertising and marketing. Accordingly, we want you as a visitor to understand that in some instances we get paid a commission to endorse products or services on this site.

We occasionally make recommendations. Our recommendations are based first and foremost on their merit. We make them either because of their value, helpfulness, and quality, or based on our direct or indirect knowledge of the author’s reputation, track record, and level of expertise. No advertiser will ever influence the content on our blog or in our other materials and communication. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified.

Sometimes these recommendations include links, also known as affiliate links, to products or services for which we may receive some kind of compensation. We either get a commission for each sale, or receive some form of remuneration, either financially or in kind. Please be aware, that links in our materials may very well result in such compensation to us. If you do not think it is fair for us to earn commission for our recommendations, then you may perform a search for the product and visit the website directly. Most times, my compensation arises from you “clicking on a link” from my site. Therefore, if you visit the website on your own, I will usually, not be compensated. There may exist some exceptions to this policy depending on the way each company tracks their affiliate referrals.

Some links do not have any affiliation or compensation whatsoever, but are included for the same reasons expressed above. In other words, we add them based on merit. If we find them helpful and suspect that they may be of interest to our readers, we will include them, regardless of compensation or lack thereof.

If you have a question about whether or not we’re materially connected with anything that we promote or endorse, please contact us via email.
