Disclosures and Content Use

Public Relations

Although many of the items reviewed are purchased, Elke Von Freudenberg [ Blog ] does accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. While my blog attempts to accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews, I never guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not preapproved by PR representatives or brands. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review. Editorial timeline is currently 4-6 weeks from receipt of a product. Beginning in October 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such.

Advertorial Posts

Elke Von Freudenberg [ Blog ] occasionally includes advertorial or sponsored posts. All advertorial posts that recommend a product or store are disclosed as being advertorial in the post.  Sponsored posts may include an advertisement, but have no affect on the content. E.g. the content is not recommending the product, store, or item in the advertisement. Such posts may or may not be labeled as sponsored. All links in such posts carry a rel=”nofollow” tag.

Affiliate Links and Advertising

A commission is earned when a product is purchased using an affiliate  link. Elke Von Freudenberg [ Blog ] is also supported by paid advertisements and is a member of LinkShare and Commission Junction.

No Warranty of Products
