Disclosure of sponsored content and other forms of advertising

This blog is written and edited by Dave Pearson (that me). From time to time this blog accepts forms of paid advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. Sponsored posts will be clearly identified using a badge stating the article is a Commissioned Article near the beginning and a one sentence disclosure statement at the end.

The owner of this blog is sometimes compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for posts or advertisements, he always gives honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are the bloggers’ own or representatives appointed by the owner (i.e. guest writer).

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
