CW Disclosure Policy

Thursday, May 1, 2008

Per the new FTC endorsement guidelines, allow me to present - for your reading pleasure - our disclosure policy.

Cake Wrecks is a personal blog written and edited by me and one or two other trusted individuals (like my hubby, John). If you have questions, please send them to

Cake Wrecks accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. These include:

- BlogHer Ads: I am a member of BlogHer Ads, and their advertisements appears in my blog’s header and sidebar. I receive monetary payment not based on the content published on my blog but for showing their ads in my blog’s header and sidebar.

BlogHer has strict rules regarding the content I publish on this blog and I am bound by contract to adhere to their rules. For example, I am prohibited from posting any reviews for which I’ve been paid money to write.

- Amazon Associates Program: Purchases made through Amazon affiliate links on this blog yield a small referral fee. This applies to all purchases made on Amazon, regardless of whether the product the consumer purchased was mentioned by me or not. The consumer’s purchases are confidential; I don’t know who has purchased items using my blog’s Amazon Associate links.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.

The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely those of the blog’s writers. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
