DISCLOSURES

COMPENSATION: The main form of financial compensation this site receives is via the shop and the items in it, which have been handmade by me. The items in the shop are meant to be worn with care and are considered fashion products.
The blog does on occasion, and always with discretion, accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation for collaborations consisting of original posts written by me, in what may be termed “advertorial”. Collaborations are only agreed upon so long as I may maintain my own opinion, voice, content, and personality that my readers have come to know. Affiliate links, which provide a commission based on sale or click number, may be used in posts and will be disclosed at the top of each post to maintain transparency. All editorial content is written without prejudice or bias, regardless of sponsor or affiliate associations.

REVIEWS: At this time A. Tak Crafts will currently consider the acceptance of products, services, website mentions, or various other topics from brands, PR representatives, small businesses and Etsy shops. A request made to review one of the aforementioned does not guarantee my acceptance of the request for review. The fact that I have received a complimentary product will never influence the content, topics or posts made on the blog. Press samples submitted for review are For Consideration only. I do not provide any guarantee of review, positive or negative. While I try to only accept products of interest, if something does not fit right, looks weird, smells bad, tastes funny etc. I will not claim it to be otherwise. I may choose not to review an item, and I will never endorse or encourage the sale of a product that does not meet my standards or expectations. All reviews will always be 100% in my own opinion. Reviews 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 I cannot guarantee a time frame when your item will appear in a post. I’m currently on a 2-3 week turn-a-round for product reviews. Please make note due to the investment of time and effort that goes into incorporating products into the content on the blog, any products sent for any purposes will not be returned.

FTC COMPLIANCE (NO EXCEPTIONS): A. Tak Crafts and I, as Author, comply fully with the latest FTC Guidelines regarding disclosures (see above). All reviews of products are 100% in my 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. I 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. Sponsored posts & content with links will always remain ‘no follow’ if compensation is exchanged.

WARRANTY & CLAIMS: The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my own expertise and experience are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with manufacturer or provider. I, as the owner and author of A. Tak Crafts, make NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. This blog is provided “As Is” without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
