Disclosure & Cookies Policy

This policy is valid as of July 2014.

The blog is written and edited by Dave (with the occasional spelling and grammar check by the missus). The blog accepts payment (cash, product and other) from brands for advertising, sponsored posts, product reviews and competitions.

Advertising space, sponsored posts and reviews will be clearly identified and labelled in order to ensure transparency in relationships between the blog and brands. Posts will be labelled with the terms ‘review’, ‘sponsored’ or ‘collaboration’ to indicate that payment has been received in exchange. Even if compensation is received, this will not influence the views, opinions or beliefs of the blog owner and all content will remain open and honest.

The blog is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn revenue by advertising and linking to Amazon. The blog is also a participant of Google Adsense, an advertising program which displays targeted ads to visitors as a way of earning money.

The blog does not collect cookies itself (as far as I’m aware), but a number of third parties connected to the site will be. This includes the aforementioned Amazon EU Associates Program and Google Adsense, along with Google Analytics and WordPress.
