Disclosure of Material Connection

Disclosure of Material Connection:

We generally receive review products provided by the manufacturers, suppliers or retailers for free for review purposes.

We may also, in some cases, use affiliate links.

We use the following codes throughout our blog to ensure you understand any affiliation we have to these suppliers.

Regardless of the material connection, it is important to understand that all reviews, recommendations or product endorsements are solely own opinions.

  • We do not post paid reviews.
  • We do not guarantee positive reviews for anyone, whether they supply goods free of charge or not.
  • We do not seek feedback from suppliers prior to posting any review
  • We do not adjust, edit or change negative or neutral reviews at the suppliers request. Please Note: We will consider adding to, or amending reviews if suppliers later provide additional items for review, upgrades their product or service, or provides additional information, for example, if changes are made to the manufacturing process as a result of a fault we have highlighted.
    In such circumstances, an explanation of the change will be added to the text.
  • We do solicit free review samples from some suppliers, and receive others unsolicited. We do not make note of this, as we treat all review items identically, and do not make any promises to suppliers who we seek samples from which we do not also make to unsolicited reviewers—namely, that we will endeavour to review all items we receive honestly and fairly, and seek to post reviews within 48 hours of receipt of goods.
