This policy is valid from 17 July 2011
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts and keeps free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. Giveaways are provided by the company that is being reviewed unless otherwise noted. The company is 100% responsible for shipment of the item to the winner and Courtney's Sweets cannot be held liable for unfulfilled shipments on the companies behalf. All reviews/giveaways that are provided by a company will be noted at the bottom of the post. The compensation/items received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. When entering giveaways you must have at least 50 followers on whatever social media network you're sharing from and this includes twitter. If you are private and your name is chosen as a winner I will send you a friend request that will need to be approved within 48 hours so I can verify or a new winner will be chosen.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, http://www.
The owner(s) of this blog is not 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. If we claim or appear 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.
This blog does contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content will always be identified.
Sponsored/Partnered Posts: In the case of a sponsored or partnered post you will now see this image at the top. I am sometimes compensated to give my honest opinion about a product, to write an article, or create a recipe. Although I am being compensated all my views about the topic are still 100% true and cannot be persuaded by monetary means - in fact I have turned down many opportunities as they do not apply to myself or my audience.
Guest Posts: There are some cases where companies/brands contact me to write about them include a link to their website. These posts are also compensated. There are also times when an article is pre-written and asked to be placed on my blog. During any of these situations the content must be relevant to Courtney's Sweets. Opinions as I've stated previously are my own and cannot be bought.
Affiliate Links: While I do not post affiliate links often, it does happen. An affiliate link is a link that brings you to an outside page.. for example, Amazon or Zulily. If you decide to make a purchase through that link I receive a small commission - Sweet Baby thanks you in advance! :)
Sample Provided and Affiliate Link: This means that I have reviewed a product from a company and I have also included an affiliate link in the post. The affiliate link will take you to an outside page for example Amazon and if you make a purchase I will receive a small commission.
Sample Provided for Review Purposes: We love to review products and of course share those products with you! Companies contact us to feature their new products and we receive a sample that we test out and show you in a detailed review. Each review that is published and shared contains my own opinion.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this updated disclosure. I apologize for all the images, but I have to make sure that Courtney's Sweets is compliant.
Thanks for being a fan! :)
