It’s important to me that I’m as transparent as possible about any affiliation, compensation or other conflicts of interests that might have an influence on the content you read on this website. I write with integrity and disclosure policies like this allow you, as readers, to make your own judgments about any influences on the content that you read.

This website may accept sponsorship or publish paid-for posts if they are relevant for my readers. I may also accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organisations. Paid-for posts will be marked with terms like sponsored, promotional, in association with and featured. Review posts that are not highlighted as sponsored will represent my own unbiased opinion of the product, service or website that I am reviewing. For your own peace of mind you should verify any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service with the manufacturer or provider.

I’m keen to support other writers so may post guest posts from time to time. These posts will express the views and opinions of the author.
