Complying with the FTC ruling that bloggers need to disclose if they are being paid or compensated for their posts, the following is my full disclosure policy:

This policy is valid from December 15, 2015:

Lisa & Co. is my personal blog, written and edited by me, Lisa. For questions about this blog, please contact  lisa.and.co {at} mail {dot} com.

I will abide by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty in everything.

This blog will accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, and other forms of compensation.

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics and/or posts made by me in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.

As the owner of this blog, I could be compensated to provide my opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I may receive compensation for my posts or advertisements, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Now, let me rephrase in plain terms…

This blog is written and edited (and everything else) by me alone. It started out and will continue to be a place for me to document my family life and all of our (mis)adventures. However, I have discovered that even I, a stay-at-home mom, can use her blog as more than just a forum to share what goes on with us all. Hence, I may receive compensation for some of my posts and space used on my blog.

I  will occasionally review products for other companies (both at no cost to me and things I choose to do on my own, footing the bill myself).I will contact companies and inquire about the possibility of working with them, and hope that eventually, companies will seek me out.  In most cases I will not be paid to review a product. I will, however, receive the actual product or a similar product in exchange for writing the review. From time to time, I hope that the company will give me an extra to use as a ‘giveaway’ on the blog. All reviews that are compensated as such will be identified.

I will from time to time post my reviews about products and items that we personally use as a family and enjoy. These are simply my opinions and I do not receive any compensation for writing the review. It is just me getting the word out about something that you may find useful.

There will be numerous links throughout my blog, many of which may be affiliate links. Such links provide me with a small compensation should someone click on the link and/or make a purchase through the link.

I will ALWAYS give my honest opinion on a product, regardless of whether I am being compensated or not. Like it or hate it, I will tell you as it was for us, regardless of compensation.

So, that basically covers it. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at lisa.and.co {at} mail {dot} com.
