My Policy on Conflicts

posted by Nell Minow

Per the FTC’s guidelines on blog disclosures, here is my policy:

I sometimes receive DVDs or other items for review or to give away in contests. All opinions are my own and as readers of the site know, I have no hesitation in expressing my negative views on any movie or DVD I do not like. But you should always question the bias of anyone expressing an opinion online or anywhere else.

The ads on my site are automatically generated beyond my control, though I have the right to refuse any advertiser and have done so. I welcome your questions or comments at any time, about ads or about my posts.

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation, all of which goes to Beliefnet and does not affect my compensation.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising will be identified as paid advertisements.

I am paid by Beliefnet to provide information and opinions. I am not paid or compensated by the producers of the content I write about. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest. Most of the DVDs or other promotional items I receive are used for giveaways or contests. If you ever have any questions or comments about this policy or anything else, I’d be glad to hear from you.
