Disclosure

The contents of this web site and blog is written and edited by me, Ben Wehde.

The compensation I receive as an affiliate marketer to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics does NOT affect the topics or posts I make in this blog.

I abide by word of mouth marketing standards and believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity.

Unlike so many who promote Internet marketing products, I am NOT a product launch monger who promotes every product – good or bad – that hits the market.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own.

I always provide my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. In rare cases, I will mention products that I have not personally reviewed. However, this only occurs when I am familiar with the manufacturer’s previous products and am satisfied that he or she produces only high-quality goods.

Regardless, I will tell you if and when I do not have personal experience with the product.

Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Blog Comments Policy

I welcome any and all of your thoughts – supportive, critical or otherwise.

Please note however that I will censor or delete comments that are:

  • abusive
  • off-topic
  • contain ad-hominem attacks
  • promote hate
  • use excessively foul language
  • are blatant spam or advertising

All comments are held in moderation until I can get to them (usually once a day unless I’m off-grid). Please be patient. If your comment is valuable and contributes to the discussion, it will be included.

Please note too that ‘nice post, thanks’ type comments from “Buy LCD TV” posters will be marked as spam, so it is in your best interest to contribute to the conversation as areal person, if you are looking for some link love.

Yours in Success,

Ben Wehde

Anyone who believes in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has wrongfully been filed against them, may submit a Counternotice to the website owner and/or the ISP.

COUNTERNOTIFICATION TO CLAIMED COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed with the website owner and/or the ISP against you, the owner and/or the ISP will attempt to notify you and provide you with a copy of the notice of copyright infringement. If you have a good faith belief that you have been wrongfully accused, you may file a counternotification with the website owner and/or the ISP. If website owner and/or the ISP receives a valid counternotification, the DMCA provides that the removed or blocked information will be restored or access re-enabled.

The website owner and/or the ISP will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it in not less than 10, nor more than 14, business days following receipt of the counternotification, unless the website owner and/or ISP first receives notice from the complaining party that such complaining party has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on this website.

Please be advised that United States copyright law provides substantial penalties for a false counternotice filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material of yours is protected by copyright laws, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
