Disclosures and Legalese

Blog Disclosure

Since the FTC requires that we disclose this information please read the below and know that all blogs have operating costs. Food for testing recipes is not free and retesting again and again to perfect recipes costs a lot.

  • Yes, we make money off of this website. If we did not, there would be little point in paying to keep it running. How do we make money, you may ask?
    • We make money (although not much) off of many links on this website. Most of them are affiliate links where we make a few cents when you buy a product. We only link to products we use on a regular basis and trust. If you want to buy a product we use in our recipesor one we review please buy through our links. It is just one way you can help keep this site running.
    • We make some money off of “page views”. Yes, you view the page, you make us a tiny fraction of a cent.
  • No, our opinions cannot be bought. While we may receive free items to review, we reserve the right to express our true feelings about the products. We are happy to receive free things but  we will not always write a glowing review. When appropriate to the poor quality of an item Alan actually quite likes writing negative reviews. Although we always welcome companies to send us free products. we accept only items that are relevant to our blog. We do this so we can pass along the reviews  or even the free items themselves – via contests and giveaways – to our readers.

Don’t Blame Us

At times we may run contests. Everyone loves a contest. These contests may provide the winner with “free” items as a prize which may have been purchased by us or may have been provided by a sponsor. In any case…

  • If you do not like the item, please feel free to let us know. Do not, however, expect a replacement item.
  • Unless otherwise specified, we did not make the product. If you have a reaction, get sick, die, go deaf, smack your grandma, or have any other unwanted or unexpected reaction, either good or bad, from any item which you receive from My Gluten Free Girlfriend or any of it’s affiliates, friends, acquaintances, pen pals, or any other related person, we are not responsible. By accepting the prize, looking at the prize, smelling the prize, or in any other way having any contact or near contact with the prize, you are bound for life to the agreement that we are responsible for nothing and you cannot sue us. No matter how much you want to.
