Disclaimers

Last updated May 7, 2018

Policies

Zadidoll.com is located within the United States of America, hosted by Blogger.com and as such abides by the United States Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations for bloggers (16 CFR Part 255).

Zadidoll.com is entirely written and edited by me. I accept products for gratis for reviewing purposes and I post affiliate and/or referral links. I do not accept cash advertising or sponsorship at this time. I have accepted product for giveaways and in the past have had paid insertions via Google's AdSense program. I'm currently affiliated with Sonia Roselli, Saucebox, Target, Refersion, LinkShare, ShareASale and Amazon.com affiliate programs and in the past have also been affiliated with Commission Junction.

This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. While I believe in being honest with my readers and try to be as open and honest as possible there are times when my opinion about a product or company may be bias.  I do disclose when a product is sent for free or am posting an affiliate or referral link. If I do make a suggestion on a product or company I do urge my readers to do more research before making a final decision on to purchase a product or to support (or not to support) a company.

Any blog post in which I am somehow affiliated with or receive some sort of compensation will either be disclosed at the beginning of the post or a "Disclaimer" at the bottom of the blog post. An example of a disclaimer will read as:

Disclaimer: Affiliate/referral link enclosed.

While I may earn a commission via an affiliate link or receive some sort of perk from a referral link the opinions expressed in my blog posts are strictly my own and may or may not be beneficial to the company whose product I am reviewing. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.



Affiliate Links

I earn a percentage of sales via my affiliate links. The money earned from these links help to pay for products I purchase and/or contributes to the purchase of subscriptions services I have. Companies with which I earn a percentage of sale via an affiliate link include the following.

  • Amazon.com
    I earn 4% off each purchase made via my Amazon affiliate links.
     
  • Birchbox
    I am part of the Birchbox Partners program via LinkShare where I earn between 5% to 8% of sales made via my Birchbox affiliate links.

    Note: I also have a referral link that is not to be confused with the affiliate link. (See below for more information.)
     
  • Sigma Beauty
    I earn 1% to 10% on purchases made via my affiliate link.
     
  • LinkShare
    Via LinkShare I have affiliate links for BH Cosmetics, Birchbox, JuiceBeauty.com, Memebox, Nourish Organic, Paula's Choice Skincare, Sephora Canada, Sephora.com, Inc., Temptu and Too Faced Cosmetics. I earn between 3.5% to 15% of sales depending on the advertiser.

    Note: I am no longer affiliated with a few of the companies listed above due to various reasons. Links found in this blog to those companies either no longer earn me any money or are just dead links.
     
  • ShareASale
    I earn between 10% to 15% from the companies that I'm affiliated with via ShareASale. From Beautylish and Besame I earn 10% and from Julep I earn 15%.

    I earn up to 10% from sales via product links from Sonia Roselli Beauty. Some product SKUs are as low as 1% and go up to 10%.
  • Saucebox Cosmetics
  • Target

Past Affiliates
  • Lime Crime As for April 2014, Lime Crime has discontinued their affiliate program.
  • Sugarpill Cosmetics As of March 2017, Sugarpill has discontinued their affiliate program.



Referral Links

Referral links earn me a credit which can be redeemed for free products.

  • Birchbox and Birchbox Man
    I earn 50 points for each referral made. For every 100 points earned I earn a $10 credit which can be redeemed for free product.
     
  • Hautelook
    I earn a $10 credit for each person who signs up and makes their first purchase via my referral link.
     
 Past Referrals Links
  • Beautylish
    By referring 50 people to sign up for a Beautylish account (free) I earned a $100 credit and a t-shirt when their shop launches. No other compensation is given. (Update: My final referral credit was $160.)
     
  • Beauty Army
    For every three people who subscribe via my referral link I get one free box, up to four free boxes per year (I think per year).
     
  • Ipsy
    I earn 250 Ipsypoints for each person who uses my referrals. As of September 2013 these points can be redeemed for one free product per month.
     
  • Julep Maven
    I earn a $15 credit for each person who signs up and makes their first purchase or subscribes to a monthly box via my referral link. I now earn a free month for every two people who sign up via my referral link.
     
  • Little Black Bag
    I earn free items (valued at $25 each) for each person who signs up and purchases their first LLB.
     
  • Shoe Dazzle
    I earn 200 pts for every person who signs up and makes their first purchase with Shoe Dazzle. Points accumulated can be redeemed for free shoes. I do not have an affiliate account with them at this time which is different from their referral program.
     
  • Sole Society
    I earn a free pair of shoes for every three people whom signs up via my referral link and makes a purchase.

  • Go Go Girlfriend
    I earn points towards free boxes and discounts for every new member who signs up via my referral link. NOTE: DO NOT SIGN UP FOR GGG - they take your money but will not send you ANY boxes and have not sent boxes out since November or December 2011. It's a scam and so the link is completely removed.
     
  • Glossybox



Past Associations
  • MyGlam
    As a MyGlam Ambassador, I was not compensated in any manner by Personalized Beauty Discovery, Inc. I pay for my own subscription as well for my daughters. The only thing as a MyGlam Ambassador that is different than a normal subscriber is that I can contact MyGlam officials to voice my opinion. In mid-2012 MyGlam was renamed to Ipsy. I am not an Ipsy Ambassador.


Beauty Influencer Affiliations

I receive product for free via these companies for reviewing purposes.
