Product Review Agreement

Product Review Agreement

UPDATED 1/1/2019

You are seeing this agreement because you have contacted me about reviewing your product or have seen my offer to review your product on a YouTube video. Product reviews are done on a first come, first serve basis.

In order to have your product reviewed on this blog you will agree to the following terms:

  • Furnish the product (in its entirety) that you want reviewed on this blog to this address: KatersAcres,  1270 US Highway 6, Linesville, PA 16424, USA
    • Please note: Product MUST be relevant to polymer clay / mixed media.
  • Send me the products you want reviewed with the following details included:
    • Name of the Product
    • Retail Price of the Product
    • Where to Purchase the Product (either/or in stores & online)
  • Offer my readers a discount on their purchase by issuing a separate coupon just to my blog readers OR send two products/copies of your items so that I can use one as a free giveaway on the site courtesy of you.
    • Coupon can be for a early bird discount, percentage off, dollar amount discount, or free shipping.

In return for your generosity I will do the following:

  • I will thoroughly test your product (this can take up to 2 months).
  • I will write a full review of your product sent.
  • I will publish the product review on my website.
  • I will publish your product review link to my email list (over 4,500 subscribers).

Full Disclosure:

  • I will publish that your item was sent to me at no cost, specifically to test and review.
  • I will write an honest feedback on my thoughts of your product.
    • Please understand that sending me a product for free does NOT mean that your product will automatically get a positive review or that your review will be published (see negative reviews section below).
    • Mediocre Review: I do publish mediocre or “so-so” product reviews. These I consider a comparison review and mean that while I didn’t find your product top-notch for a variety of reason I didn’t find it bad enough to give a negative review (see negative reviews section below).
  • Due to our pre-planning calendar and workload, full product reviews & publication time will take no less than 21 days following receipt of item and no more than 90 days following receipt of item for a full test and review of your product.
  • By sending me an item to review you are automatically agreeing to all terms stated here; including unrequested products.

Negative Reviews:

  • I DO NOT publish products that I would not recommend to my reader’s whole heartedly.
  • If I find that your product is not good enough for me to recommend to my readers (or not tailored to my audience), I will notify you by email.
  • I will not publicly shame/smear your name, product, or work.
    • I do NOT feel that a negative review is fair to any artist or company as all artists put considerable time, effort, and energy into the product, books, materials, and supplies.
  • If I find your product unsuitable you have 2 options:
    • I will keep your item that you sent me at no cost to myself, Katie Oskin, or KatersAcres.
    • You can send me a shipping label to rebox your item & return it to you in it’s current use state: including opened and partial use condition.
