DISCLOSURE OF AFFILIATE LINKS
Growing Graci often uses affiliate links in our content. Affiliate links are links that allow us to make a small commission for referring our readers to another website. We may earn a commission for our readers making a purchase after clicking the link or for completing another action (like signing up for a service).
These links will never cost you more money, but by you using our links, you’re helping to support our blog. We promise to only refer you to products that we have either bought and used ourselves or ones that we’d also be willing to spend our money on to try. The trust we have built with our readers is more important than anything.
AMAZON AFFILIATE PROGRAM DISCLOSURE:
We are a participant in 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.
DISCLOSURE OF SPONSORED CONTENT
Content that is about a product or service that we received for free at a discount price will be clearly disclosed at the top of any related content. If there is no such disclosure, the content is NOT sponsored.
While we love working with brands that we love, please rest assured that all opinions are our own, even on sponsored content. With every brand sponsorship deal that we work on, we retain the right to cancel the sponsorship if we find that the product is NOT something that we think our audience will absolutely love.
(We’re really all about that trust with our audience!)
