The owner of this blog does require that products provided for reviews will not be returned and may be kept by owner or given away.

Cookies: As I understand it, when you click on any affiliate links in general (mine included) a cookie is placed on your computer that shows I referred you. If you buy something within a certain time-frame the company through which you made your purchase pays me for referring them. I think most websites you visit including this one are putting cookies on your computer. You can change your computer settings to disable cookies while you browse the internet if you wish. I’m not sure where but that option may be found in the privacy settings of your own computer.
