Disclosure Policy

Intro

I offer, but and am not really bothering with paid advertising at present. However, I have in the past and may do so again, in the future, depending on my mood and the offer.

I do sometimes promote and recommends other’s sites, particularly those I help develop, or that I find especially useful myself, but that is a courtesy. Such links are neither requested nor rewarded for.

As regards generated adverts (e.g. Amazon, Google Adsense), I have used them in the past but find them ugly, intrusive and not worth the effect for the paltry returns they offer.
(Back when they started and needed us developers, they were generous, but the bigger they got, the greedier they got, clawing it all back for themselves. Parasites comes to mind.)

Our policy

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts and will consider forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.

(Such links will also have ‘nofollow’ in the address and a clear title description, as per various rules. See Advertising with Ackadia))

The owner of this blog is NOT compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics*. Even though the owner of this blog (may) receive compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ 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.

*(Unless overwise stated, boldly, e.g. with commissioned articles (see Advertising))

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

Placement Matters
Disclosure should be “clear and conspicuous” to comply with FTC guidelines. Nobody should have to hunt for disclosure; it should be obvious that something is paid. That means that the “Ad” disclosure should come first in a social media post and not jumbled in amongst other hashtags. When creating a video, disclosure should be at the beginning of the video rather than the end. Bear in mind that a video may be viewed without audio, in which case a text overlay or prominent disclosure in an attached title or description (above the ‘show more’ button) is recommended.
