Disclosure Policy

I, Tor Lindahl, do hereby declare that this is my disclosure policy as relates to blog post content at Tor's Rants. It is in effect as of Sunday, November 12, 2006.

I personally write, edit, moderate and otherwise generate all content on this blog. If you have any questions, please use the contact info in the sidebar, or lay it on me in a comments section.

Some of my blog posts are sponsored by companies, organizations or individuals. I may receive compensation for such posts in many forms, including (but not limited to) cash, products or services for review, travel, or event tickets. I will always clearly disclose sponsored posts with text at the end of the posts.

Even tho I may have received compensation in return for writing a blog post about a product, service, website or other topic, the thoughts and words in the post will be my own. Still, as is the case with anything you might read in the blogosphere, please conduct your own due diligence as to the factual accuracy of anything I have written in any post, sponsored or otherwise.

In any post, sponsored or otherwise, it is my intent to disclose any relationship that my readers may perceive as a conflict of interest. I also would like to remind my readers that my writings are influenced by my background, occupations, religion, political affiliation and general irritability.

There are also third-party ads that run in various areas of this webpage. I derive income from allowing these ads to run on my blog, and from the interested visitors who click through to visit the advertisers' webpages.

I also will sometimes include affiliate links to products I am discussing in non-sponsored posts, or on other areas of the webpage. If you click on the links and order products from the websites, I will receive referral commissions from the sales. I don't bother to label such links as affiliate links, since most folks will easily recognize them as such. If you're an idiot who can't recognize an affiliate link not sure, just ask.
