This website, coffeevagabond.com will regularly partner with affiliate programs and sponsors as a source of revenue to keep this blog running and to help us cover the expense of business and travel.
When we do promote products please understand that it will only be products that we think will really benefit our readers. As such please also understand that these affiliate relationships and sponsored products may or may not result in us receiving compensation.
TRUST – More than anything we know that your trust in Coffee Vagabond is the most important thing, and we will not promote or partner with any company, product, or organization that does not have the highest commitment to integrity and professionalism.
We are also participants in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
We are, and will also, be members of other similar programs with other companies, and those affiliate relationships may or may not change over time as we seek to build the best scope of companies and products for Coffee Vagabond followers.
So while the price of a product is the same for you, either way, we may or may not receive a small commission/compensation if you buy something after clicking any of our affiliate links.
In December of 2009, the Federal Trade Commission began requiring bloggers to disclose whenever there could be a financial interest in any of the products or companies that we partner with.
BLOG WITH INTEGRITY
By displaying the Blog with Integrity badge or signing the pledge, I assert that the trust of my readers and the blogging community is important to me.
I treat others respectfully, attacking ideas and not people. I also welcome respectful disagreement with my own ideas.
I believe in intellectual property rights, providing links, citing sources, and crediting inspiration where appropriate.
I disclose my material relationships, policies and business practices. My readers will know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, should I choose to have it. If I do sponsored or paid posts, they are clearly marked.
When collaborating with marketers and PR professionals, I handle myself professionally and abide by basic journalistic standards.
I always present my honest opinions to the best of my ability.
I own my words. Even if I occasionally have to eat them.
