Disclosure and Privacy

Disclosure

This blog is a personal pet blog written and edited by me, with the exception of a few guest posts (which I will clearly mark as a guest post). I take pride in giving my honest opinion and assessment of all the products that are submitted to me and experiences I may be given. I do and will contact the company to let them know if I have a negative opinion of the product(s) and will give them a chance to respond to my opinions before publishing. Just as I may opt out of publishing a review if my experience is negative, the company can also request that I not publish my post.

If I post information directly from the company’s website I will state that and will typically italicize the information to separate it from my own writing. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product will be clearly stated.

I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my own experiences, are worthy of my endorsement.

I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. By adding this disclosure, I am abiding by FTC rules and regulations. I also state my relationship with each company at the end of my posts by noting whether the company compensated me a free product, cash or any other form of compensation for my honest opinions.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and/or other forms of compensation. However, I will not allow ANY company to “buy” a positive review.

We are Amazon affiliates and have other affiliates on Doggies and Stuff.  If you choose to purchase products through our affiliate links, we will receive small revenue, a portion of which is donated to local non-profit no-kill shelters or pet welfare organizations, whose mission it is to put end Puppy Mills and to push for tougher penalties for dog fighting in our state of Indiana. You can identify our affiliates by seeing something like, “We Give Back with Every Purchase” or something similar above the ads for our affiliate companies.

Thank you for supporting Doggies and Stuff as we support these important pet welfare causes and as we bring you our honest opinions of products you may want to use in your home, with your pets.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to me and I am committed to protecting it. I ask for your email address when you make a comment on my blog, but I will never sell or share that information unless you are the winner of giveaway. Then I will only give it out to that particular sponsor so they can send you your prize. When you give me your address after you have won a giveaway on my blog, I will only send this information to the sponsor for prize shipment and no one else will have access to it.

You will also find links to third party websites on my blog. I am not responsible for the privacy policies for those parties, so please check those third party websites should you have a concern.

Please email me with any questions or comments.  To request a copy of our media kit, which includes pricing for advertising and links, please email:DoggiesandStuff@gmail.com
