Disclosure Policy

My Promise: I only work with companies I know you’ll love so you can rest assured, when I say I like a brand, I mean it! That’s my guarantee to you.

In order for AmandaMcCadams.com to function and provide you, the reader, continuous and free content, I use advertising and affiliate links to third party sites in order to obtain earnings and help support the cost of operation, growth and expansion of the site.

Despite that, your trust is more important to me. I always offer my honest opinion about a product or service and provide you with items that I feel may be useful on your travels and when you photograph. This is clearly understood by each of the companies/advertisers I work with. I make sure we work together according to this policy that reserves me the right to refuse anyone who disagrees with it.

My commitment to you

The core of my community is mutual respect. I offer my 100% commitment to my readers to respect you and operate AmandaMcCadams.com with integrity keeping your best interests at the root of everything I do.

To be a part of this community the one thing I ask is that you also commit to respect me and each other. If we can maintain this core value, our community will continue to thrive.

I thank you in advance for this commitment and your participation in my website and in the online social communities.

Federal Trade Commission Rules
Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC ( Federal Trade Commission) requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. I will always disclose any material relationship, policies and business practices I have. Please see below for further details.

Affiliate Links
For the sake of simplifying the disclosure process, please assume that when you click on any and every link to a retailer or service provider within the entire AmandaMcCadams.com website, it is linked to an affiliate third party site wherein a small commission will be earned if you purchase an item. The price you pay is not affected.
In addition to various retailer affiliate programs, I am also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
These affiliate links help cover costs to run and maintain a website and keep the content free.

Press Trips
If I receive a complimentary press trip, accommodation, or activity, this will be disclosed within the individual article. My honest and personal opinions and experiences will always be shared.

Product Reviews
Products reviewed on AmandaMcCadams.com include items that I personally have purchased, complimentary merchandise that has been provided for consideration, and paid advertisements (labeled as “advertorials”).
I accept products for review but only publish reviews for items I believe to be relevant to the AmandaMcCadams.com readers. If an item is deemed inappropriate for the AmandaMcCadams.com reader, a review is not published.
Published product reviews include my honest and personal opinion for products that work for me and may also work for you. I refuse to work with any brand or product that does not make sense for my readers. This ensures that the companies I do feature I genuinely like.

Advertorials and General Content
Products or services that have not been personally reviewed by me may be shared with you in an unbiased and informative manner so that you may form your own opinion of the item. This may include products featured in “advertorials” or general editorial content within the site.
Paid editorials are disclosed within the individual article by being labeled as “advertorial”.

Please note: Products mentioned within AmandaMcCadams.com may include items I personally use, that other travelers and photographers recommend, and general editorial suggestions based on relevancy.

While I believe that providing you sources enhances your experience on AmandaMcCadams.com, I make sure to always present my honest opinion.
AmandaMcCadams.com is not responsible for any purchases made on third party sites. It is up to the buyer to research all products and services before purchasing.
