This website is aimed at adults ages 18 and up. The Website does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 16.
I will post product reviews for which I have received compensation either monetarily or in the form of sample products. I will always disclose when I have been compensated for a review, and you can be assured that my review is an honest one. I will always provide my honest assessment, both pros, and cons so that my readers have a genuine appraisal of my experience with the product being reviewed. Besides, what may be a negative experience for me could be something that would be positive for you. Or vice versa. Integrity is important to me.
