Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them.

That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.

These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
