Disclosures

The following outlines our editorial policies and fully outlines the relationship between our editorial staff and the products & vendors we cover.

While we are not journalists, we try to uphold journalistic standards when we report something as “news”. However, the roles we most often take on are education, analysis or editorial columnist.

News

When we present news, we do our best to make sure the facts we provide are accurate and fairly presented.

Analysis

When we present analysis, we try to represent our best independent judgments rather than our preferences, or those of our sources, advertisers or information providers.

Opinon

Our reviews and editorials are driven by our experience with a given product or service relative to our experience as working professionals. These experiences and the opinions they form are, by their very nature, subjective.

Our only allegiance is to products and services which work best for us and which we will serve you equally as well. We reserve the right to change recommendations as products improve, change, or grow.

Advertising

Like most publications, our revenue is derived from advertising. We receive compensation for the ads we serve.

When and if we receive sponsorship, the companies we do business with will disclosed on a “Sponsors” page. These same companies may sponsor our contests and giveaways.

We do not sell editorial space – ever. The advertising or affiliate links on the site is not connected with the editorial content in any way. We do not accept money to run reviews. We do not own stock in any company we cover here unless otherwise noted.

Affiliate Advertising

We use affiliate links in this website. If you click on those links and order a product, we receive compensation. This compensation in no way impacts the price you pay at any vendor other than to reduce – rather than increase it. We only list affiliate links that we believe lead to fair prices and products.

As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases. This is noted here for the purposes of satisfying out obligations under our contract with Amazon and to align with FTC policy on affiliate disclosure.

We provide this information so that the audience can have all the facts available to them when judging the work we do at Focus On Mobile. We will update this page from time-to-time as changes in our circumstances and policies warrant. Visit often if these things concern you.
