MakeSushi.org is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. Also any prices displayed on this website in regards to amazon products are only meant as a guideline price to give you an idea of the product price is more or less and should not be mistaken for the actual price of the goods. The prices are updated manually and thus most likely out of date since amazon changes prices according to supply and demand.
The FTC (federal trade commission) requires that I disclose any relationships I have between me and a service provider or a product manufacturer, when I write about said service or product.
Here are the guidelines I operate MakeSushi.com
- I am rarely paid to review a product/service. In most cases I never accept money to review a product. I invest my own time to video and edit the videos when reviewing a product/service. If I am ever paid to review a product it will be clearly marked as such.
- Sometimes I don’t pay for the product/service I test, sometimes they are sent to me by the manufacturer. Rarely, do I request a product, in most cases the manufacturer contacts me via an email or a phone call, sometimes they just send it over without notice. If I feel it’s a product which you might benefit from, then I request a sample for me to review.
- After I review the products I don’t return them to the manufacturer as in most cases the product is used up or damaged through use and testing, also I don’t have the staff or resources to process the return of a product to the manufacturer.
- When I create a link in a product review, sometimes I may get paid a commission if you purchase the product or service. I will disclose it at the end of a review, if you don’t see a disclosure then I’m not getting paid any commission for that review.
- If you click on a link anywhere on my site and end up on a product page of Amazon.com then I am receiving a small commission from amazon should you choose to buy.I find these to be good practices in today’s digital world, it’s very important that you as a consumer understand what the relationship is between the manufacturer of a product/service and the person reviewing said product/service.
If you find a review on the internet that doesn’t have a disclosure policy that reviewer may be breaking the law, or at the very least the code of ethics.
I hope you found this disclosure helpful, let me assure you of one thing, if and when I review a product I will not have a different opinion weather it was given to me or I bought it.
