Curriculum-Reviews.com and http://curriculum.handinhandhomeschool.com is a blog written and maintained by Dynamic Educational Solutions LLC (“DES”), an educational advocacy company based in Maryland and owned by Alessa Giampaolo Keener, M.Ed. This blog uses and accepts forms of cash advertising, affiliate links, sponsorship, or other forms of compensation.
Advertising and Sponsorship
DES may accept advertising and sponsorship from companies, nonprofits, and businesses we believe provide a valuable educational-related product or service to families and professionals. Paid advertisements will be found and identified as either “sponsor” or “advertiser”.
DES does not receive, accept, or solicit Compensated Reviews, in which a company sends a product, service, or website along with financial compensation in exchange for a product review. As a general rule, DES firmly believes that Compensated Reviews are neither fair nor objective sources of information to readers. As such, we have chosen not to publish any Compensated Reviews.
DES may receive sample copies of educational material, such as books and access to premium websites, at no cost, for the purpose of an objective evaluation and review. No financial compensation is received for writing or posting the review. A notice will be included at the end of the review when a sample copy was received.
DES also conducts reviews of educational material, such as books and premium websites, through the direct personal purchase of such products. In this case, no financial compensation has been received, nor has any free copies of material been received.
DES participates in affiliate programs. We post links to books and other products that we believe are relevant to our blog posts. When you click the affiliate link and purchase the product, we receive a nominal commission from that purchase. Affiliate Programs do not report any identifying information about you or your purchase to us. As of November 1, 2015, our affiliate programs include Amazon, Goodle Adsense, Grammarly, Reading Eggs, Rocket Languages, Scholastic Books, an Zoobooks. At our discretion, DES may include additional affiliate programs to our family of websites in the future.
Blog posts that contain affiliate links do not intend to suggest the affiliate or affiliate’s featured product condones, sponsors, promotes, or agrees with the views and opinions expressed in the DES blog. Specific product claims, statistics, quotes, or other representations about the affiliate’s product or service should be verified by the reader with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
