Disclosure & Privacy


Firstly, All information on this site is free, no monthly subscription or sales pitch and if I recommend a product chances are I own it, have owned it, or have at the very least used it for review purposes.

All information on this site is for educational purposes only. I do not claim to be an expert, nor do I provide expert advice. I only write about and recommend products based on my own personal experiences.
Just because I like it, doesn’t mean you will like it too! And my results with using a product may not be the same as yours.

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues.

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, we will and do accept and keep free products, services and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.

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.

Some advertising and affiliate links are run on my website. Affiliate links earn me a small commission on any purchases made when visiting the affiliate’s site after clicking on one of these links. I will do my absolute best to only provide you with information about products that I truly believe in. I will never take your trust for granted. All reviews on my website will be presented honestly and with the consumer and reader’s best interest in mind.

If you think something I cover is worth having you can help me out by purchasing it through my links or gear page. That helps pay for the cost of the site.

The owner(s) of this blog is not monetarily compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. We do not claim to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area. We will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our 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.
