MODERN DAY TECH
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING MY VIDEOS AND VISITING MY WEBSITE. YOUR TRUST IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME AND I TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY!
I believe honesty and integrity are some of the most important qualities a person can have. It's not something that is optional in business or in personal life. Once someone has lost their integrity with another person, it's almost impossible to get it back.
I strive to help you select the right products for you. I understand that shopping for tech can be frustrating and intimidating. There are thousands of brands and product lines to choose from. I don’t want to sell you a product or push you in one direction or the other. My job is to help you think about what’s right for you. By giving you the information and telling you about my personal experience with each product, I hope you can make a better-educated buying decision.
As you’ve probably noticed by now, all of my reviews are offered to you for free. To make my business sustainable, I use affiliate marketing, which means when you make purchases through a lot of the external links on my site where I may earn a small referral fee (at no extra cost to you).
I will not direct you to a website that charges a premium. More often, I strive to find merchants and retailers who are both well-priced and trustworthy. Sometimes, I'll even provide selection pages where you can compare multiple retailers to determine which offers the best deal for you
If you return a purchase made through my links, I earn nothing—and I'm perfectly okay with that, especially if you are not satisfied with the product. Therefore, it is in my best interest to be thorough and helpful, recommending only top-quality products that I genuinely believe you will enjoy
REVIEW UNITS (FREE PRODUCT) :
Some manufacturers & retailers will provide me with review units of their products. As a reviewer committed to upholding ethical standards, I firmly believe in providing honest and unbiased assessments of products. Transparency and integrity are paramount in my approach to product reviews. While I occasionally accept free products from brands I know and like, I want to clarify that I do not engage in paid sponsorships. (Read Sponsorships below)
Accepting free products allows me to broaden my knowledge and experience with a wider range of offerings, enabling me to provide more comprehensive and informed reviews. However, it is crucial to emphasize that the acceptance of these free products does not compromise the integrity of my evaluations.
I undertake the responsibility to diligently test and evaluate each product I receive, ensuring that my reviews reflect the true merits and shortcomings of the item. I maintain a critical and unbiased mindset throughout the review process, focusing solely on the quality, functionality, and overall value of the product.
My audience's trust and satisfaction are of utmost importance to me. Therefore, I disclose any instances where I have received free products for review purposes, fostering transparency and avoiding any potential conflicts of interest. This practice allows my audience to make informed decisions when considering the opinions and recommendations I provide.
I firmly believe that my dedication to unbiased, honest, and transparent product reviews fosters an environment of trust and reliability. I strive to empower consumers with accurate and insightful information to assist them in making well-informed purchasing decisions.
By providing these review units, they are not guaranteed a review or posting. If the product is terrible, I simply won't review it. I don't want to waste your time. Upon request and manufacturer-provided pre-paid postage, I will return the product to the company.
I most often purchase these products with my own money. I've spent tens of thousands of dollars buying products to review them.
In summary, my ethical commitment as a reviewer entails accepting free products to expand my understanding of various offerings while ensuring my evaluations remain unbiased and truthful. By adhering to these principles and openly disclosing any potential conflicts of interest, I aim to maintain the trust and confidence of my audience.
It takes a lot of time and effort, to research, test, film, edit, and respond to comments and emails. So I believe there is nothing wrong with being compensated as with any legit business, but I also believe there is a fine line between honestly reviewing/featuring products and a biased promotion.
As a product reviewer, I maintain a strong commitment to upholding ethical standards and providing honest and unbiased assessments to my audience. In alignment with these principles, I have made the decision to never review products with companies that sponsor me.* (read * statement below)
By choosing not to review sponsored products, I prioritize the integrity and transparency of my evaluations. I firmly believe that sponsorships can create conflicts of interest and compromise the impartiality required for unbiased reviews.
In addition to my commitment to unbiased product reviews, I acknowledge that there may be instances where I choose to engage in ad spots (paid sponsor) for products or services that fall outside the scope of my reviews. It is essential to clarify that these ad (paid sponsor) spots are exclusively reserved for products or services that I have never reviewed and have no intention of reviewing in the future.
By maintaining this distinction, I ensure that my ad spots do not compromise the integrity or impartiality of my review process. My primary objective remains providing accurate and unbiased information to my audience through my reviews, while ad spots serve a separate purpose that is clearly delineated.
When participating in ad spots, I make it a priority to clearly disclose that my involvement is limited to promoting the product or service in question and that it does not constitute a review or endorsement based on firsthand experience. This disclosure allows my audience to understand the context of my engagement and avoid any confusion between ad spots and genuine reviews.
Transparency continues to be of utmost importance to me. By openly communicating the boundaries between ad spots and product reviews, I strive to maintain the trust and confidence of my audience. I aim to ensure that they are fully informed and empowered to differentiate between promotional content and the impartial evaluations they rely on.
In summary, while I maintain a firm stance against reviewing products or services that I have received through sponsorships, there may be occasions where I engage in ad spots for non-reviewed products or services. I take great care to clearly disclose the separation between ad spots and reviews, ensuring transparency and preserving the integrity of my evaluation process.
*In the early days of my channel, over a decade ago, I produced two sponsored videos while navigating the complexities of content creation. The experience left me feeling uneasy because it didn't align with my values. Consequently, I vowed never to engage in such partnerships again
Thank you for taking the time to read my ethical statement. I believe it is crucial to be upfront with you and to earn your trust. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me
