Advertorial and Sponsored Post Policies
Sweeties Sweeps may occasionally feature compensated advertorial or sponsored posts. We charge an optional listing fee to post some blog giveaways and sweepstakes to those who wish to pay that fee. We also charge fees for Featured sweepstakes and some email newsletters.
Affiliate Links and Advertising Policies
Sweeties Sweeps makes use of affiliate links that may appear in some posts. As an affiliate with some sweepstakes companies, using their links helps us earn income when you enter the sweepstakes. We only post legitimate sweepstakes and work with only legitimate affiliate companies. By clicking on the links you help Sweeties Sweeps make money to keep this site running. Sweeties Sweeps also runs advertisements using ad networks. If you ever find an offensive ad please email us at [email protected] so we can track it down and remove it.
Amazon Affiliate Links
Sweeties Sweeps uses Amazon affiliate links in some of the sweepstakes posts. If you click that link and go to Amazon to look at a product and make a purchase of that product or other products up until 30 days, we may make a commission on that sale (unless you visited Amazon from another site already). Amazon will place a cookie (a small text file) on your computer when you click the link from Sweeties Sweeps. This tells Amazon that you came from our site and to give us credit for the sale. We use Amazon affiliate links to help generate income for SweetiesSweeps.com. We do not use affiliate links or ads on Sweeties Secret Sweeps.
Public Relations and Product Review Policies
Sweeties Sweeps may accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. We may run giveaways in conjunction with the product review. All giveaway prizes will be either supplied by the brand or Sweeties Sweeps and will be indicated in the giveaway.
Unless compensated as a disclosed sponsored or advertorial post, we exercise full independence over product reviews. Receipt of a product, whether solicited or unsolicited, does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product or for the substance of any content produced that discusses the product.
We accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews and accepting a product to review does not guarantee a favorable review, or any review at all. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content will not be provided to for pre-approval by PR representatives or brands, nor will reviews be edited after the fact based on requests to do so. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review but may be eligible for inclusion as a sponsored post with compensation. Editorial timeline is currently 2-4 weeks from receipt of a product. All items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such per the FTC guides within the review post.
Receipt of Product Not Contractual or Compensatory
All products received are deemed to be gifts/commercial samples that do not form a contract for review and are not deemed to be compensation for any content that is written.
