Please perform your own due diligence before purchasing anything from anyone over the internet (including this website, and other websites).

1. Website Owner/Provider Connection.

You should assume (unless it is expressly stated otherwise) that all mention of products and/or services on this website are made because material connections exist between the website's owner (“Website Owner") and the providers of the described products and services (“Product/Service Provider”).

2. Due Diligence and Potential For Bias.

It is possible that the Website Owner’s opinion regarding a product or service mentioned on the website may be partially formed (intentionally or unintentionally, consciously or subconsciously) partly due to the fact that the Website Owner has been paid or will be paid because of the Website Owner’s business or other financial relationships with the Product/Service Providers. In some cases, the Website Owner and a Product/Service Provider will have a business or personal relationship that does not involve the Website Owner receiving compensation related to products and services mentioned on this website. However, the nature of the relationship is sufficient to establish a material connection between the Website Owner and the Product/Service Provider.
Because there is a material connection between the Website Owner and Product/Service Providers for products/services mentioned on this website, you should always assume that the Website Owner may be biased because of the Website Owner’s relationship with a Product/Service Provider and/or because the Website Owner has received or will receive something of value from a Product/Service Provider. Perform your own due diligence before purchasing a product or service mentioned on this website (or any other website).

The Website Owner recommends products and services on this website based partially on a good faith belief that purchasing such products and/or services will help or aid purchasers in general.
