Starting December 1, 2009, the new FTC endorsement guide states that bloggers (reviewers in my case) must disclose any form of compensation related to their blogs. Although Gunsumer Reports™ provides free information, there may be times when I am compensated. The most common ways I get compensated on this site include, but are not limited to:
If I purchase a product for review, I will state that I have purchased the product. If I have borrowed a product for review, I will state that I have borrowed the product. If I have been sponsored a product for review, I may not indicate how I acquired the product. I make every effort to give a fair and objective review of products regardless of how they are acquired. Also, I do not accept any cash payment from manufacturers for my reviews. You can see a detailed listing of all the products reviewed and those sponsored (marked with an * at the end) by going to my About page.
