Disclosure and Privacy Policy

I am the sole writer and owner of West Street Story and this is the disclosure and privacy policy for this blog.

What I post on this website are my personal experiences and opinions without any outside influence.

In compliance with the new FTC Regulations regarding disclosure of relationships between bloggers and brands, you will now see a short disclosure at the bottom of every product review stating whether the product was furnished by a brand or PR agency with a link back to this Disclosure Policy as reference.

Disclosure Disclaimer

What I choose to review on West Street Story is based on my own experience with a product. These are opinions and not facts. Everyone is different and may not have the same experience as I do. Results may vary based on a number of factors. I am not liable for any problems that occur due to a purchase influenced by this website.

Brand Affiliations

I am not employed with any of the brands mentioned on my blog meaning I do not receive compensation for endorsing them and they do not endorse me. I am not paid for my reviews. If a paid review relationship ever exists, I will disclose that. The main source of earnings I receive for this site are from my 3rd party ad networks (Google Adsense). The advertisers that appear in those ads do not have an agreement with me nor do they have any sort of editorial control. I have used and continue to use affiliate links in posts as a supplemental income source. Affiliate links are simply commission based links. If you make a purchase, I get a small commission for the sale. I do not review products simply to use an affiliate link.

Image Use

Occasionally images found on the web and believed to be in the public domain are used on this site. I don’t claim to be the owner of such images. All visual content are copyrighted to their respectful owner. If you are the owner of an image and want it removed, please, email me and I will do so as soon as possible.

Product Samples

Some of the products reviewed on this blog may be from samples sent by brands or PR agencies (I will make note in the review if this is the case). I make no promises regarding reviews or the nature of my reviews when accepting samples. Just because I am sent a product for review does NOT mean I will feature it or review it favorably. The items I choose to post are products I want to write about and my reviews are my 100% honest opinion.
