This website MarkMason.com is a personal weblog. Occasionally, the authors accept contributions from other sources (which are approved prior to publishing). Additionally, we accept comments on this blog. Comment authors are responsible for the content and accuracy of their own comments.
Honesty and integrity are part of our core principles, and we believe strongly in transparent marketing standards. As such, we need you to know that we are compensated for some of our recommendations. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.
Content on the blog that presents a conflict of interest may not always be identified. However, here are some of the ways that MarkMason.com makes money:
* Product reviews. When we review a product we usually link to that product’s sales page for our readers convenience using “affiliate links”. If you read our review and click on our link to buy the the product, your computer will keep track of that and we will get a commission for referring you. You need to know that we usually have a financial incentive to get you to buy products.
* Advertising. Sometimes we accept cash advertising, but usually ads on MarkMason.com use “affiliate links” as described above.
* Other. There may be other conflicts of interest. In general you should assume that we are making money when you visit our site.
We are usually not directly compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. In other words, people do not pay us to write nice things about their products. Rather, our trusted recommendations often lead to commission sales.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely those of the blog owner or guest author (excepting the comments, of course). We may claim or appear to be a expert on a certain topic or product or service area, but we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our knowledge or expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.
Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
Fundamentally, our policy is to “never do anything sneaky.” Transparency is the key to trust.
