Disclosure Policy

 

I am an open book and after learning that the FTC has begun regulating sponsored blogger articles and posts, I am dedicated to doing this blogging thing correctly and honestly. Ethical behavior is practiced here at The Command Center.

To comply with the recent FTC ruling concerning bloggers receiving payment for blogs about products and/or services, I offer the following disclosure policy.

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.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

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.

The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives 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.

Do know that I will rarely write a negative review of any product or service. If the service or product does not meet the standards of my readers, I simply will not endorse it. But if the product or service is good and I feel Command Center readers and followers can benefit, I will write an article or review. The bottom line is that my loyalty is now and will always be to Command Center subscribers.

If I tweet, share or pin a sponsored post, know that I have at least visited the site and reviewed it thoroughly before placing it on my Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook accounts.

The companies that I am affiliated with appear below. Note, it is my goal for the list to continually change and grow; therefore, please visit this page often.

I am currently affiliated with the following companies:

Amazon

PicMonkey

Dollar Tree

Dress Lilly

Raga
