Disclosures & Terms of Service

Affiliate Disclosure

In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation or other types of remuneration for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog. What this means for you:

  • Barbi & Scott Gardiner/Downpour Mountain is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. I often link to Amazon when recommending certain ingredients in my recipes.
  • When you click a link on Downpour Mountain, it’s safe to assume it’s likely an affiliate link and I may earn a small percentage of the sale if you are to make a purchase after click that link. However, clicking/purchasing something through an affiliate link does not cost you any extra.
  • Sometimes companies pay me, either in cash or free product, to write about them or their products. However I can promise you I only work with companies I can stand behind 100%. (That means I say ‘no’ a lot…)
  • Any post that is sponsored by a company will clearly be identified as paid or sponsored content so you can make an educated decision of your own about the item or topic.
  • Even though I may be getting paid for a post on occasion, all ideas, opinions, or statements expressed by me are fully my own, and if I don’t use the product myself, you won’t find it here.
