~ The Official "Got Chai?" Blog Disclosure Policy ~
The following information is for PR, Media, Advertisers and my uber-fabulous Readers:
This blog is authored by Mrs. Denise Opper. I write about family, homeschooling, saving money, couponing, freebies, fitness, health, nutrition, and the dance world. I may share personal information in my posts. I may also share advice, tips, and encouragement, as well as the occasional humorous rant. I do not receive gifts, money or compensation of any kind from these posts, and the thoughts and views expressed are completely my own.
I also provide product reviews for the following companies:
•Reviews for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine: I have been a proud member of their TOS Homeschool Crew since the 2008 / 2009 school year. I post a disclosure prominently within each of these reviews. This is a volunteer position which only requires an honest review in exchange for free products. I do not receive additional compensation of any kind.
•Reviews for Vala Dancewear: I am employed as the Media Relations Liaison for Vala Dancewear. The company is a division of Class Act Tutu. Part of my job description requires reviews of local dance performances as well as interviews with professional dancers. These reviews and interviews are clearly marked as such and are the same as those posted to the Vala Dancewear/Class Act Tutu blogs. I am not paid by the dance companies themselves for my reviews, however I am compensated by Vala for these work hours. Dance companies often provide me with free press passes (tickets) to these performances.
•Reviews for Book Publishers: I receive free books from a variety of publishing companies including Tyndale, Bethany House and Thomas Nelson. I am required to read these books and post my opinion. A disclosure is also noted in each post. I receive no additional compensation from any of these companies.
•Reviews for Other Companies: I am currently a BzzAgent and member of MyBlogSpark and the General Mills' Psst Program. I may receive free products through these companies, in exchange for sharing my opinion or posting a notice. I clearly state within each of these posts where the products come from and which product I received. No additional compensation is provided.
Product Reviews and Giveaways
I am more than happy to consider your product for a review. This brings a lot of traffic and attention to your company. If you have a product you would like me to consider, please email me at deniseopper (at) gmail (dot) com. I ask that you provide one item for our family to use and keep. When possible, it would also be great to include a second item to be used for a giveaway. I will require all entrants to visit your site prior to entering the contest. It is best (but not required) if the second item is shipped directly from you to the winner. The winner will be selected by a random number generator unless otherwise noted.
I'm currently an affiliate with SwagBucks and The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. Additional like-minded affiliate opportunities are welcome. Please submit inquiries to deniseopper (at) gmail (dot) com.
I gladly accept paid advertisements from like-minded companies. Banners or buttons will be placed along the sidebar for easy viewing. Please contact me regarding price and or more information at deniseopper (at) gmail (dot) com.
This disclosure policy is in effect as of January 29, 2010. Updates to this policy will be made as needed.
