Promotional articles and videos will be notated and should not be considered “endorsements” by us.
We may occasionally post a link to someone else’s website, a company website, and Amazon link, etc; we don’t have control over those websites and provide the link as a convenience only – a hyperlink to an external website does NOT imply endorsement or affiliation with that person, product, service or company.
If we are compensated or received anything in exchange for promotional consideration we will always note that in the post, typically at the bottom starting with the word DISCLAIMER. And I know it seems crazy to spend our time and efforts writing and creating videos when much of it provides little-to-no compensation but that is exactly what the majority of our content is. We consider this our volunteer work. We like helping and inspiring others and this website is our way of doing that.

If we missed anything I am sure we will hear about it and will update accordingly. Until then, please go outside and play. You deserve an adventure.

Clearing Things Up
There is always a lot of confusion about what certain words mean. While we do sometimes receive products for review purposes and have had a few products sponsored (meaning they give us the product and then they get to tout that we use their product), we are not affiliated with or partnered with any companies. Here are some definitions from Wikipedia.
Sponsorship is a cash and/or in-kind fee paid to a property (typically in sports, arts, entertainment or causes) in return for access to the exploitable commercial potential associated with that property, according to IEG. While the sponsoree (property being sponsored) may be nonprofit, unlike philanthropy, sponsorship is done with the expectation of a commercial return. While sponsorship can deliver increased awareness, brand building and propensity to purchase, it is different from advertising. Unlike advertising, sponsorship can not communicate specific product attributes. Nor can it stand alone, as sponsorship requires support elements.
An affiliate is a commercial entity with a relationship with a peer or a larger entity. A corporation may be referred to as an affiliate of another when it is related to it but not strictly controlled by it, as with a subsidiary relationship, or when it is desired to avoid the appearance of control. This is sometimes seen with companies that need to avoid restrictive laws (or negative public opinion) on foreign ownership.
A partnership is an arrangement where parties, known as partners, agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests. The partners in a partnership may be individuals, businesses, interest-based organizations, schools,governments or combinations thereof.
