Legal Stuff

Apparently a lawyer’s blog said that I should have these.  Please note that this doesn’t contain any new information about mobiles so only read if you are bored.

 

Advertising and Monetization disclosure

As you know I run this blog because I love mobiles, however routinely I get offered paid advertising and other bits as a result of the number of views I get.

Here are the rules:

1)  I will not ever write a paid advertising article/ post on the blog under the false pretenses of being a legitimate post

2) I may write about something you send me, if I like it and think my readers will like it too or find it useful. But this is not a sure way to get onto the blog.

3) I will not deliberately link to something purely for money generating purposes. I will only link to things I like, or that I think my readers will find useful. 

4) I may use some affiliated links – which mean a small contribution goes to the site- which helps pays its costs. You shouldn’t notice any difference in the way it operates. The links WILL NEVER impact the products we talk about or the attitude we take to a product. (We like to be able to sleep at night.) If there is a product that doesn’t have an affiliated link, we will still link to it.  To make it easier for us to manage we may use services like skim links which will automatically manage this for us so we don’t have it check if a link is affiliated or not.
