disclosures and content use

Public Relations

Although many of the items reviewed on Creation Despite are purchased, I also accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. While I attempt to accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews, I don’t guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not preapproved by PR representatives or brands. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review without compensation and disclosure as a sponsored post. Editorial timeline is currently 8-12 weeks from receipt of a product. All items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such beginning in March 2016.

Advertorial Posts

Creation Despite occasionally includes advertorial or sponsored posts. All such posts are disclosed as being advertorial or sponsored in the post.

Affiliate Links and Advertising

Creation Despite at times make use of affiliate links.  A commission is earned when a product is purchased using such a link which helps support the continued provision of content on the site.

Creation Despite makes no warranties as to the effectiveness or quality of any product. Reviews are based on personal experience and personal opinion. Individual user’s opinion may vary. Comments concerning reviews from users about their experiences are encouraged and welcome.
