FTC Disclosure Statement

At MakingItPayToStay.com, the privacy of our visitors is of extreme importance to me. This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information that is received and collected and how it is used.

As the owner of this blog I have the full intention to be compliant with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules about the use of testimonials and endorsements in advertising and marketing. I want you as a visitor to understand that at times I get paid a commission to endorse products or services on my site. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. Many of the links are affiliate links which I receive a percentage of if you place an order. If you have a question about whether or not I’m connected with anything I promote or endorse, please contact me. Your trust is important to me! If I find a better product than I have promoted, I will do my best to edit the original recommendation and/or let you know! I truly want to help save you time, money and aggravation. I LOVE to research things to death and review products thoroughly before I promote something.
