So recently the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has passed a law in the U.S. saying that all U.S.-based bloggers need to have a disclosure policy to let you guys know what our motivations are when we talk about products or review them. What this means is that the government takes bloggers seriously! Here is some info you should know about how we do this blog:
Sponsorships, Affiliates, and Collaborations
– We accept payment or free product for some of my posts, social media posts, and guest posts through options offered on my Sponsor page and through affiliate link programs. We put a LOT of work into this blog, and these partnerships allow us to invest more time and resources than we could on my own. This means better content for you guys!
– If we are paid to promote a product or have received a product for free, we will let me readers know clearly in our post and inform them of the partnership relationship, according to the most recent FTC guidelines. You’ll always see a disclaimer at the bottom of any sponsored post if this is the case.
– We reserve the right to refuse a partnership or to promote a product or service that we feel is in conflict with our blog’s content, the best interests of our readers, or our personal morals.
Terms of Service
We’ve created LWTL to connect with others in the military community and to equip each other to be the best warriors we can be. With that goal in mind, you may use the content of my blog and posts:
– on your own blog or site, as long as you link back to mine and give me credit for the content.
– in social media, once again linking back and giving me credit.
– to aid in the use of creating your own product content (for research purposes), as long as you give me sufficient credit and let others know where to find me.
– in your own work you create to sell or give away, if you secure my permission beforehand.
You cannot, however, use our blog content:
– to claim as your own work. This is called plagiarism, and it’s not professional. Or cool, for that matter.
– as a piece in your own work (such as tweaking my tutorials or using my photos in art) without getting expressed permission to do so.
– to sell or give away to others without permission.
We will never give away or sell any email addresses, mailing addresses, or other personal information that you give us on this blog or in any communication you have with us. We will also ask your permission before using any information from private communication in one of our posts.
These policies are subject to change without notice and were last updated 11 March 2017.
Disclaimer: We’re both in the Air Force, but of course this blog is not endorsed by the US military in any way, and it holds only our own opinions.
