Our Policies

Welcome to Our Policies Page!

We're not overly fond of lots of rules and regulations. However, we are very sincere about our intentions to be ethical, honest and transparent in our internet business practices and to fully respect our readers and customers. We commit to only recommend products and services that we have fully checked out and that, in our honest opinion, are of high quality and offered by reputable companies.

Therefore, we offer the following policies to outline our commitments, expectations and practices so that all is perfectly clear and up front. (Note: the terms blog and website are interchangeable in the following policies.) Similarly to good fences making good neighbors, we hope clear policies will assure you of our commitments and ethical business practices and earn your confidence in us and our business. So here goes....
