FTC Disclosure

This blog is not primarily financially driven, however, it does use affiliate links and advertising throughout which will hopefully some at least sort of income to help support this site on an ongoing basis. It is also my intention to use this site to rally support for future crowdfunding campaigns to finance my own filmmaking efforts in the future.

Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.  So here goes…

Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules. To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use, the following all hold true:

I received payment, food, goods, products, money, stock options, personal/professional/sexual favors of any kind, career advancement, or profited in some other way. This includes the burden upon you to assume that even if it is not explicitly stated in every individual case that each link is an affiliate link and I will be paid a portion of the sales price for the said product or service.

This disclosure is included in order to prevent the necessity for individual disclaimers in each instance and therefore should be taken by the you that I in someway profited, is profiting, or will profit regardless.
