DISCLOSURES

You will see these disclosures at the top of any posts that have any form of compensation, including, but not limited to: press samples, products, gift cards, paid posts, brand ambassadorships and more.

AFFILIATE LINKS:  You will see an affiliate link disclosure when the post includes links to certain products that are affiliate links. I may make a small commission if you choose to purchase the item(s) through my link(s). I only link to products I feel fit my personal style or fully believe will be beneficial to my readers. Not every link is an affiliate link. Affiliate links, which provide a commission based on sale or click number, may be used in posts and will be disclosed at the bottom of each post to maintain transparency.

SPONSORED: You will see a sponsored disclosure where a sponsored post is a regular post (written by me with my own thoughts/opinions), but a brand compensates me to ensure that the product does appear on the site, and with their timeline. All opinions are my own and I will never accept compensation just to show a product in a better light. You may see something similar to this quoted at the top of the post: “This post has been sponsored by COMPANY, although I have been compensated for this post, all opinions are 100% my own” to signify a sponsored post. 

COMPENSATION: This blog does (with discretion) accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation for collaborations consisting of original posts written by the Author, in what may be termed “advertorial”. Collaborations are only agreed upon so long as the Author may maintain own opinion and content. All editorial content is written without prejudice or bias, regardless of sponsor or affiliate associations.

REVIEWS: At this time The Vintage Modern Wife is currently accepting products, services, website mentions, or various other topics from brands, PR representatives, small businesses, and Etsy shops. Receiving a complimentary product will never influence the content, topics or posts made on the blog. Press samples submitted for review are For Consideration only. The blog and it’s Author do not provide any guarantee of review, positive or negative. While The Vintage Modern Wife, tries to only accept products of interest. The blog and it’s Author may choose not to review an item, and the Author will never endorse nor encourage the sale of a product that does not meet the Author’s standards. All reviews will always be 100% in the Authors opinion and are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as an advertorial. I reserve the right to NOT review an item sent to me for review. If you are sending me an item for review I will assume you have read all of these rules. REVIEW DISCLAIMER: Please understand that due to the volume of requests I receive, I cannot guarantee a time frame when your item will appear in a post. I’m currently on a 3-4 week turn-a-round for product reviews. Please make note due to the volume of submissions and the investment of time and effort that goes into incorporating products into the content on The Vintage Modern Wife, any products sent for any purposes will not be returned. 

BRAND AMBASSADOR:  You will see a brand ambassador disclosure if the products and company being talked about are someone whom I have a formal relationship with as a Brand Ambassador. All opinions have and will always be 100% my own.

PR SAMPLES:  The PR sample disclosure will be used anytime the product in the post has been sent by a company or firm for a review consideration. The opinions provided are 100% my own.

FTC COMPLIANCE (NO EXCEPTIONS):  The Vintage Modern Wife and it’s Author comply fully with the latest FTC Guidelines regarding disclosures (see above). All reviews of products are 100% in the blog owners opinion and are not subject to pre-approval by PR Representatives or brands. Brands or PR Representatives that wish to impose such pre-approval guidelines or wish to provide content that is not written by me, will not be accepted without compensation and will be labeled & disclosed appropriately as a sponsored post. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the time of the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog but will not influence the opinions and honesty within the posts.
