Disclosure Policy

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Megan at potatochipcats@gmail.com.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog, but that content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

Even though I may receive compensation for certain posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.

Review and Giveaway Policies

I will review any and all products that I expect will be of interest to my readers. I reserve the right to refuse a potential review if it does not meet this standard.

Please allow 2-6 weeks for a review to be completed. As the time of publication approaches, I will email you with the draft review for approval and testimonial use. My reviews will be 100% my own opinion. In the event of a negative review, you may decline the publication. If you have a specific date in mind for the publication of a review, I will always do my best to accommodate it.

Reviews will be written for free. I will not be responsible for shipping costs of review items and review items will not be returned. I will not review sample sizes for any item other than food.

If you would like to supply a discount code with the review or in a separate post, or sponsor a giveaway in conjunction with a review, there is no additional charge.

Giveaways will be promoted via email and RSS, Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, blogging forums, and giveaway listings (10+ ongoing lists, 3+ daily lists each day for the first 10 days of the giveaway). Giveaways can be modified to run in a specific allotted time frame, if you so choose. Giveaway sponsors will be responsible for shipping prizes, ideally within 2 weeks of winner selection. Local sponsors (southeastern CT) may arrange a pickup and I will handle shipping if need be.

Entries in a sponsored giveaway can include but are not limited to: liking a Facebook page, following a twitter account, circling a Google Plus page, commenting on a website or Facebook page, subscribing to a mailing list, and/or visiting the sponsor’s website and commenting about learned information on the giveaway page. Offering entries for purchases will not be allowed.
