FTC Disclosure

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) unanimously approved new guidelines for endorsements and testimonials on Monday.

“…“material connections” (sometimes payments or free products) between advertisers and endorsers – connections that consumers would not expect – must be disclosed.”

In the spirit of disclosure, please allow me to list  affiliations, with regards to this blog.

I am the Chief Technology Officer of InternetCE.com and I am also the lead writer and editor for this blog.  I receive a salary from InternetCE.com and may also retain ownership in the future.

I have not received money or gifts in exchange for reviews of products or services from outside vendors.  Should I be presented with such, it will always be disclosed with the review.

When being invited to conferences or events, in lieu of sponsorship or otherwise, I have had my admission fees waived for myself and a traveling companion or colleague.  I do however, pay for my own lodging and transportation.
