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.
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: 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. Affiliate links are used on this site. This means that when you click the link on my site (for example, an Amazon.com link) and make a purchase, I could earn a small percentage of commission for your purchase. (Thank you for your support!) You will not be charged extra in any way, it’s just a thank you from the site for referring traffic and the purchase. I participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
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 disclosures, but I have to make sure that Courtney’s Sweets is compliant.
Thanks for being a fan! 🙂
