MyGolfMk7.com provides a way for me to discuss topics related to the Volkswagen Golf Mk7 which I understand could influence readers of this site.
Healthy skepticism about my methods and conclusions will serve a reader well. Question what I have done, assumptions I am making, and don’t believe that my opinion is always correct, it certainly is not!
As of this date, June 28, 2017, I have never been paid to endorse a product, though as most would-be car modifiers can appreciate, it would kick-ass to get paid to use somebody else’s parts. If you think you have something I’d find beneficial to equip my VW Golf with, and you want to pay me to use it, contact me right away.
If that ever occurs I’ll be sure to mention the FTC Guidelines related to endorsing products, though I expect this is the only instance that I’ll ever have to mention the FTC Guidelines on this site.
I am going to give a shot at various monetization opportunities, Google AdSense, Amazon Affiliates, and VigLinks are a few I can think of at the moment. Since aftermarket performance parts are expensive, and extra cash to help pay for my ‘hobby’ will be welcomed.
So why is there now a Disclosure Policy?
- Allowing outside advertising on the site makes it important for me to communicate with the readers of MyGolfMk7 what affect that will have on the site. Besides seeing the Ad’s or Hyperlinks I don’t expect it to have any effect.
- I want to be clear that the presence of advertising does not change the approach that I take when making choices about products that might find their way onto my Golf.
- This Disclosure Policy is being presented to make the readers of the site aware that there is now some third party advertising being placed in the content of the site, but this does not constitute an explicit endorsement of any specific product. I am keeping the site as it has been, I will explain what I am doing and how my findings influence my decisions related to the VW Golf.
