Here at Cordcutting.com, we’re focused on a very simple mission: helping cord cutters. To that end, we’re always coming up with tips, reviewing products and services, and reporting the latest cord cutting news.
Doing this job sometimes involves dealing directly with the companies that make products for cord cutters. This is a good thing, because it gives us access to product releases and news that we might otherwise miss out on. But it has to be managed properly so that it doesn’t interfere with our mission of helping cord cutters.
To that end, we’ve put together a list of policies for our site. These are strict policies, and this page will always be kept up-to-date.
Our readers – cord cutters – always come first. We serve our readers, not companies or advertisers.
Review Copies Policy
Sometimes, companies send us free products for us to review. When this happens, we will always call attention to it in a dedicated section near the top of the review. We will explain in detail what we got for free. If you do not see a section like this in our review, that means that we purchased the reviewed products ourselves.
Our reviews are always impartial. Whether or not a company provides review copies has no affect on the substance of our review.
Our reviews are never paid content. We accept review copies, but we never accept any additional payment in return for reviewing a product.
For an example of how our policy works in practice, take a look at our review of the Kodi Element.
We believe that advertising on the site is the best way to support Cordcutting.com, because it has no effect on the impartiality of the site. We work with advertising partners, not directly with the companies in the ads.
Our current advertising partners are:
- Amazon Services LLC Associates Program
- CJ Affiliate by Conversant
- Google Adsense
Sponsored Content Policy
Sponsored content on Cordcutting.com will always be clearly labeled as such. It will be easy to tell these posts apart from our normal content.
To this end, sponsored content will be filed under the “Sponsored” category, and will be credited to the company, individual, or group that wrote it (never to one of our own writers). It will also include a small paragraph reiterating the sponsored quality of the article at the bottom of the piece.
