Who we are
We are in compliance with GDPR and our email service provider MailChimp, is too. Please read below for all the detailed information.
In 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revised their guidelines regarding endorsements and testimonials in order to protect the public from any intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. Because of this, I want to disclose these important points:
- This is a personal blog, written and edited by Joy Kelley and Ken Kelley unless otherwise stated in the title (Guest-post). The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely ours and we (Joy & Ken Kelley) will only endorse products or services that WE believe in, based on OUR expertise, experience and that we think are worthy of such endorsement.
- This blog accepts forms of sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation for links and post. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made on this blog. We will always disclose if we are being compensated or if the post includes affiliate links at the beginning of a post.
- The Barefoot Detour blog is part of different affiliate programs (of the products we love and believe in) this means that even though the price to you for the product or service is still the same, We will get a small percentage for referring you to the website or product. This compensation is what helps us maintain this blog and create new content and freebies.
- We would never lie about a product or service to make a commission, all affiliate products we recommend have been tested or have been our favorites for a long time before becoming an affiliate. All reviews are truthful to our experience.
We are disclosing all the point above in accordance with the US Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
