Disclosure

Full disclosure policy:

 

This is a Danish website. Danish jurisdiction applies.

This is a full explanation of how and when I am compensated on essentialtakeonlife.com

In order to keep all the content of my blog free but still be able to pay all the costs associated with running the blog, including hosting fees, blog design and more, there are many ways in which I am compensated.

To put it simply: I am not a full-time blogger – I am first and foremost a student.
Blogging is simply my passion and hobby that I get paid for doing.

 

My own beliefs

As a person and a blogger, my integrity is extremely important to me.
I will never promote something, if I don’t feel it is worth your time, energy, or money. Not even if I am offered compensation for that promotion.

If I tell you I like something, I mean it.

If I tell you I own something or bought something that is the truth.

I will never knowingly lie or mislead you just because it may make me money.

 

Give-Aways

Essential Take On Life has not yet hosted any give-aways, but I wanted to disclose how that would work, should I ever gather the resources to do so.

Though I have not yet, perhaps in the future I may accept free items from marketers or companies.
I will most likely use those free items as contest prizes here on my blog or Facebook pages/other social media forums.

If it so happens that I keep one of those items for my own personal use, I will disclose that I received the item for free if it is discussed here on the site.

Should I tell you that I love something without disclosing that I received any benefit for writing about it, it is because I have not received any benefit from writing about it and because I really, truly love it.

 

Blog Posts that are ‘Underwritten’

There are not yet any underwritten posts on Essential Take On Life, but I wanted to disclose how it would work, should there ever be. 

In the future, companies may offer to underwrite a post in order to expose the Essential Take On Life audience to their brand.

Any such posts are solely written by me and will always be on a subject or topic selected by me, but agreed upon by the company I am working with.
These posts represent my own honest opinion and are not reviewed or edited by the company prior to publication.

Be assured that I will only work with companies whose values align with those represented on this blog, and I will only write content that I think would be of genuine interest to you, my readers.

Underwritten posts will always be clearly disclosed as such.
