AdSense Privacy Policy Provided by JenSense

For Office Freaks (as well as my other sites), I am often sent products to review.  People don’t send me products to procure kind words – they’re far too cool for that.  They send me products for me to review and tell my readers exactly what I think of them.  I do just that.

If I test something and don’t like it – I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to tell you so.  The thing is… almost without fail… people with great products know they have greatness on their hands, so they’re the ones bold enough to risk reviews from coffee-chugging bloggers who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their minds!

Furthermore, I’d like to be up front about the products I highlight in posts.  Usually (though not always) these are affiliate products that have caught my eye from a store or online shop that I believe would interest you as well.  It’s entirely up to you if you want to click through to learn more about or purchase the product.  When a visitor does click through and purchase something I’ve recommended (and it was an affiliate link), I do get compensated.

It’s how I make a living.  If I just wrote my blogs without seeking an income from them, the people at Starbucks would forget my name.  We can’t have that!

I can promise you this, however.  I would never recommend anything that I, myself, wouldn’t want.  Truth be told, if I like something well enough to blog about it – I have every intention of seeking it out for myself!
