As one can see from my bio, I am all about the sharing. I share my opinions, as well as about people, events, charities, and products to name a few. I believe that posts, reviews, and giveaways offer a unique opportunity to share with my readers honest feedback and opinions about products they might not otherwise hear about. By adding a giveaway into the mix, it increases the chances of two way conversations about a product, and is an excellent way for brands to promote their product or message.
As with most things in life there are rules or guidelines which I follow for sponsored posts, product reviews, or giveaways.
Disclosure: I disclosure how I have been compensated for a post, review or giveaway. By agreeing to write a post, review a product, or host a giveaway I am agreeing to providing my readers with a honest opinion(s) of my experience with the product or event. It in no way guarantees a positive review, only an honest one. If my experience is such that I cannot in good faith provide any positive feedback, I reserve the right not to post the review, and the sponsor will be advised in such circumstances.
Compensation: I do have a minimum compensation rate to cover time and expenses for a review, post or giveaway; however I realize that each product, campaign, and circumstance is different so please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your specifics.
Giveaways and Shipping: Please note that I will not be responsible for shipping sponsored giveaway prizes to winners. Sponsors are responsible for all shipping arrangements and costs of shipping prizes directly to winners. Cathy Thinking Out Loud is not responsible for items not received, but will work to try to ensure all prizes are delivered in a timely manner. Please allow 6-8 weeks for prizes.
Giveaway Terms & Conditions: Please read the terms and conditions for each giveaway as they do change. No purchase is required to enter but note that I check all entries to ensure they are completed as per the given instructions, and that those entering qualify to win. Incomplete entries or entries void where prohibited will be disqualified, and a new winner will be drawn.
