Sponsored Content and Affiliate Links
All of the recipes and articles on MyGourmetConnection® are provided as a service to our readers free of charge. In order to continue providing this service, we occasionally accept compensation for articles and/or recipes or include affiliate links to products we feel may be of interest to our audience.
We will never endorse products or services that we believe are of poor quality or are totally to the interests of our readers. We choose our advertisers carefully and will only work with companies/brands we feel are an appropriate fit both in subject matter and quality for MyGourmetConnection®.
All views and opinions expressed on MyGourmetConnection® are purely our own. Product claims, statistics, quotes or other representations about a product or service should be verified directly with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
About Sponsored Content:
As online media continues to evolve, many advertisers are choosing to pay for editorial content in place of or in addition to more conventional banner advertisements. This type of content allows an advertiser to provide consumers with information about their products and/or services in a more useful manner.
Sponsored content on MyGourmetConnection® will be clearly marked as "sponsored by" or "presented by" and may include a product image and/or external links to the sponsor's website.
About Affiliate Links:
Affiliate links are specially encoded links to external, online shopping sources. Should you click on an affiliate link, MyGourmetConnection® might receive a small commission from that click and/or purchase.
Any article or recipe that contains affiliate links will be clearly marked, and, as with our sponsored content, we will only publish affiliate links from reputable companies that offer products we feel are an appropriate fit both in subject matter and quality for our site.
