Disclosure Policy

Updated March 9, 2018.

Dear Reader,

Thanks for popping in!

This is Courtney, and I’m the owner here at Wholesome Houses.  My goal on this site (WholesomeHouses.com) and in my newsletter is to provide helpful tips, tools, and resources for making your home healthier for you and your family.

The information you see on WholesomeHouses.com and in my newsletter is free to readers and subscribers, but represents many hours of time and work for me.  Because of that, I feel that compensation is appropriate and I have various financial agreements in place with several of the products and services you’ll see on this site.

Occasionally, I accept advertising, sponsorships, reviews, products, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation.  More often, I participate in affiliate programs, including 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.  These methods provide me with some income and allow me to devote the time and energy needed to keep this website and my newsletter free for you.


Products I Will & Won’t Promote

Here at Wholesome Houses, I strive to ensure that all of the information presented meets the highest standards of honesty and integrity.  Please know that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because I believe they can be helpful and useful to you, NOT because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something.  I will only endorse products that I personally use or can recommend without hesitation.

Most of the products and services I promote have been purchased by me personally.  Occasionally I will promote products I have used but not paid for (which may have been borrowed or provided to me free of charge).  In rare circumstances, I will promote a product or service which I have not personally used, but which comes highly recommended by people who I trust.


What is an Affiliate Link?

Throughout this website, on social media platforms (including Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter), and in my newsletter you’ll see me mention affiliate links or referral links. These references are called disclosures and are required by the Federal Trade Commission in the United States.

These disclosures are meant to provide transparency and to inform you that I have a financial relationship in place.  If you choose to purchase a particular product or service through my affiliate link, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.

Affiliate links are a great way to support the work done here at WholesomeHouses.com without spending an extra dime.  And while your support is very much appreciated, please do not purchase any of my recommended products or services unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.  Additionally, any product claim, statistic, or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.


Let’s Sum This Up…

I do make money from this blog.   Sometimes I am compensated to provide my opinions on products, services, websites, or other topics.  That content, advertising space, or post may not always be identified as sponsored content.  Other times I receive a commission when you purchase a product or service through one of my affiliate links (remember, the price you pay is the same).

Again, I only recommend products and services that I know or trust, whether a financial relationship is in place or not.  I will always give you my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on these topics and products.  Thank you again for your support!
