Okay, I've been avoiding creating a Disclosure Policy, for two main reasons... 1. it kind of confused me and 2. it kind of pissed me off that I had to do it in the first place. I've always mentioned it up front if a company has supplied me with a sample. If a company contacts me and offers to send me samples, I usually agree to try the product. However, that in no way influences my opinion. I'm a pretty easy person to please (I can hear my husband saying "yeah, right"), so for the most part, while I may not gush about a product, my reviews will be mostly favorable. However, if I don't like a product, I'm going to be honest about that as well. Getting a free sample of something is not going to sway my opinion. Also, I will always mention it in the body of the post if I've received a sample, and I may even put a tag in italics at the bottom of the post. So that's my Disclosure Policy in a nutshell, but if you want to read the legally stuff, scroll on down.
