Product, Ad, Affiliate, Referral Policies

Updated on February 26, 2018

Advertorial and Sponsored Post Policies

Sweeties Sweeps may occasionally feature compensated advertorial or sponsored posts. We charge an optional listing fee to list giveaways and sweepstakes to those who wish to pay that fee. We also charge fees for Featured sweepstakes and email blast 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 sweetiessweeps@gmail.com so we can track it down and remove it.

Sweeties Sweeps uses Amazon affiliate links in some of the 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 to 30 days, we may make a commission on that sale. You are never required to purchase anything by using our link. We use Amazon affiliate links to help generate income for SweetiesSweeps.com. By clicking the link and shopping as normal you are helping us to generate the income we need to keep SweetiesSweeps.com free to use. Free sites cannot run without some form of income. We do not use affiliate links on Sweeties Secret Sweeps.

If a company asks us to list a sweepstakes they may ask us to use tracking link so they can track how much traffic is coming from the Secret site to their entry page. This tracking link is totally anonymous and does not contain any of your personal information.

Referral Links

As of February 26, 2018, we do not use referral links in the sweepstakes listed on SweetiesSweeps.com (our public, free site) or in our social media posts on Facebook or Twitter. We also do not use referral links in any of the member-only, private content on SweetiesSecretSweeps.com (read the policies here for the Secret site). However, members are allowed to add their own referral links in the private area of SweetiesSecretSweeps.com.

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.
