This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. This shouldn’t be taken as an endorsement for any product advertised.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
The owner of this blog may be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers own opinion. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
Paid product reviews
I may be compensated to provide an opinion on a product, service, website or other topic. Even though I receive compensation for these posts, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs or experiences on those topics or products. All opinions expressed on this blog are my own. I will also write reviews for which I’ve not received any compensation (just because I want to!) so where I have received compensation for writing a post it will be made clear.
I do link with affiliate programmes, this means if you follow a link I have provided to a product and then go on to purchase from that site, I will receive a percentage of the cost. I will never provide a link to a product just because it’s part of an affiliate programme.
