Special note: With any paid advertisement, sponsorship or affiliation, including the Project Wonderful ads on the blog, we will be making an annual fur-family donation to the RSPCA equal to any profit at Creativity Unmasked. Just one more piece of evidence that Oli and Tig are really in charge around here!
Guest, Sponsor, and Affiliate Policy 2013 v 1.0
Fellow bloggers are welcome to borrow from my my policy when drafting their own.
This is a personal creative blog, with the primary purpose of encouraging and supporting creativity in all forms. Any post at Creativity Unmasked must align with the ethos of this blog and suit the target audience.
Creativity Unmasked exists to share. I often post about interesting discoveries, creative processes, products and shops. These are usually my own creative activities or personal finds (real and virtual). In the interest of supporting creativity in all forms, relevant websites of origin are always credited as are any shared images. Guest interviews and feature posts for artisans and independent creative entrepreneurs are free of charge in keeping with the aim of Creativity Unmasked. Unpaid posts here at Creativity Unmasked may also include other forms of unpaid links which help to provide supplemental information on a post or topic, including but not limited to definitions, resources, charities, events, etc. I am not compensated in any way for writing these posts or sharing the links - I just love to share!
Creativity Unmasked will accept very select forms of sponsorship and affiliate compensation. Compensated posts will only be accepted if they suit the ethics, audience, style, and intent of Creativity Unmasked. Quality content matters.
- Compensated posts at Creativity Unmasked will always be clearly identified. I believe that it is important to be upfront, open, and honest with readers. Disclosure of any material relationships or compensation is not only a legal requirement, but also a matter of personal ethics. There is absolutely no marketing-by-stealth at Creativity Unmasked.
- Creativity Unmasked accepts products for review and/or giveaway. Reviews at Creativity Unmasked are honest. Whether a post is paid or unpaid, I will only recommend products that I have personally used and enjoyed.
- Compensation will never influence the content of reviews, posts, or other content posted in this blog. Money can’t buy my love!
- Links are used where the linked product and/or website suits the content and target audience. Creativity Unmasked will only provide “no follow” linking if directly compensated for sharing a website.
Advertisements that appear on this blog are third party (currently available via Google AdSense, Google Affiliates and/or Project Wonderful) and/or sponsor advertisements. From time to time, Creativity Unmasked may also offer free advertising blocks to artisans and independent creative entrepreneurs. I do not personally vet or endorse the products and services advertised in any of these formats. Note: Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
