I hate to get all legal-y, especially when we’re having fun; but some things need to be said explicitly.
For those of you that don’t want to read every word on this page, here it is short and sweet:
I am an ethical person and make no conscious effort to deceive you or to undermine your trust.
Sometimes people give me stuff. I don’t let it sway my opinions. If I’m ever in doubt, I’ll spell it out explicitly.
Notwithstanding the above (that’s the legal-eze creeping in) – I have an opinion and will share it.
I respect your privacy (and request that you respect mine).
I have normal, fair terms of service.
When I mention gear I’ve tested or a podcast guest mentions books that they recommend, I’ll often include a link to them. Usually these will be affiliate links – meaning that if you buy, I get a small percentage from Amazon or whomever. It doesn’t cost you anything more and it helps to cover some of the costs of this site.
However, I want to be as transparent as possible. Maybe you have some moral objection to clicking affiliate links. Maybe you hate this site, but love buying stuff on Amazon. Who knows! Whenever I include an affiliate link, I’ll include a non-affiliate link right after it that looks like this “(non-affiliate link)”. It gives you a choice and keeps everything out in the open.
I do hope you’d choose the affiliate link, though. It isn’t much, but it helps and producing these podcasts isn’t cheap!
The FTC requires bloggers to disclose when we may be persuaded or have a hidden bias.
Here it is in the open: sometimes I get free stuff; sometimes I get special consideration; sometimes I advise or invest in companies.
