Indiana / Elsewhere • Disclosure Policy
Indiana / Elsewhere is written by Indiana Adams as a personal style blog and lifestyle blog that is suitable for all ages. That means subversive content is not allowed. Because this is a for profit blog, relevant affiliate links are used in posts and I do accept compensation for advertisements, partnerships, featured posts, and giveaways. Such posts will have an appropriate disclaimer. Other editorial content is not compensated unless stated otherwise. Items I receive free of charge are clearly marked with a "c/o" (courtesy of) within each post. Courtesy items are accepted only if they fit within my style, shopping, and own personal budget (i.e. I won't accept it if I can't pay for it and style it).
Partnerships & Compensation
Partnership agreements are only made with companies and individuals that are of interest to both myself (Indiana Adams, the founder and editor of Indiana Elsewhere) or my family and Indiana Elsewhere readers. I do not accept cash payment for reviews or non-sponsored posts, nor do I allow guests posts that are of promotional nature.
I do accept a limited number of sponsored post opportunities each quarter. Sponsored posts are clearly marked as such. All sponsored posts are written by me or my husband Chris so that the voice of the blog is not compromised. We only work with brands or feature products that fit into our current lifestyle. Any product received as part of the sponsored post opportunity will be marked with a c/o (courtesy of) and appropriate outgoing link, which may or may not be an affiliate link providing commission.
I do reviews on a case by case basis. To make sure review items fit into my own budget and aesthetic and to ensure that it will be a good fit for my readership, all products for review must be pre-approved. Sending an item does not guarantee coverage and reviews are done in complete transparency, meaning I must be given the freedom to style or use the item how I'd like and give an honest opinion of said product. All products sent will have a “c/o [your company link]” next to it, indicating it was a courtesy item. If you or your company would like to send any products for review, please contact me for consideration.
Giveaways & Contests
Giveaways are reserved for official Indiana Elsewhere partners and are done on an extremely limited case by case basis. In order to assure Indiana Elsewhere readers that the quality of my content is not determined by payment, I can only do giveaways on products that I myself can vouch for (usually by previous review). Email addresses are only used to contact the winner and are expunged after the giveaway drawing. I will not sell or give this information to giveaway partners, nor do I make it a requirement to follow your social media links (or mine) for entry. Prizes must have a retail value of $50 or more. The giveaway sponsor is responsible for providing and shipping the prize to the designated winner. I do not require social media links to be followed as a way to earn extra entries.
Indiana Elsewhere does not participate in link exchanges. All links are chosen for the benefit of the Indiana Elsewhere readership and featured blogroll links change from time to time.
Indiana Elsewhere does contain advertising and affiliate marketing links, meaning I may get a small commission on sales of products that are linked within posts. If you follow a hyperlink and make a purchase from an affiliate of Indiana Elsewhere, that means I may make a commission from that purchase. However, please know that the content of Indiana Elsewhere is not influenced by advertisers or an affiliate partnership. I will only link items that I currently wear or use or items I believe are similar to what I already or currently wear and use. Content is written first and relevant affiliate links are added last. All linked and featured items fit into my budget and are of my own style aesthetic.
I do not sell or release any contact information given to or input into Indiana Elsewhere. Please see more copyright and privacy info below.
