The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that Paleocookiest disclose any relationship we have between a product manufacturer or service provider when we write on a product or service.

Many of the links on this site are affiliate links – what little money is received keeps this free site going to pay for hosting, admin, etc.

We will not do paid-product reviews – what readers receive (and deserve) are honest opinions on products and services. If we get a free product or service to review, we will note that.

Reviews of Products and Services

These are the guidelines Paleocookiest operates under when we write a review:

  • We are never paid to do a review, nor do we accept money to review a product or service. We invest our own time to review and test products and services. We use our own money and time to produce videos and content regarding product/service reviews.
  • We may or may not pay for the products/services we test. If we feel it’s a product/service our audience might benefit from, we will review the product/service and give our honest opinions – both positive and negative.
  • If we create a link to a product or service in a review, sometimes, we may get paid a commission if a User purchases the product or service. This does not influence our review. If we feel a product or service does not benefit our readers and/or is full of fluff rather than substance, we will not write it.
  • We will never write a review we do not feel our readers will benefit from.
  • If a product is not beneficial for our readers, we don’t write a review – or will write a bad review.
  • The content of reviews is not influenced by advertisers or an affiliate partnership, nor are reviews written for the sole purpose of promoting a product or service.
  • We only write reviews for products and services for compensation that we would have still written even if we were not compensated. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

The bottom line: We believe in transparency, ethics and writing for the benefit of our readers.
