Disclaimer

All material on EV is provided for edutainment purposes only, and any information on EV, while accurate to the best of the author’s knowledge, is not guaranteed or warranted to constitute legally licensed professional advice, and should not be relied upon as substitute to advice from a legally licensed professional. In other words, EV (including any of its authors or administrators) is not ever responsible for any actions taken whatsoever as a result of using EV.

Privacy Policy

In analyzing how visitors use EV, EV uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics serves cookies, and in doing so, collects anonymous standard internet usage information. The information collected by Google Analytics cookies is transmitted directly to Google, not EV. Google then provides for EV, a compilation of statistical data helpful in making EV more user-friendly and free to use.

See Google’s Privacy Policy.

Learn how Google uses cookies. Learn more about how Google Analytics uses cookies and IP address data.

No personally identifiable information is ever collected about you on any EV site unless you yourself submit that information, such as when signing up for the viewsletter (email address, name [optional]) or when submitting a blog comment.

Third party vendors, including Google (and its advertisers) and Amazon (and its advertisers), use cookies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to this or other EV websites. Users can opt out of personalized Google advertising by visiting Ads Settings. Also, users can opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies for personalized advertising.

Because EV has not opted out of third-party ad serving, the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve ads on EV. Users can visit the websites of these third-party vendors and ad networks to opt out of the use of cookies for personalized advertising (if the vendor or ad network offers this capability):

Where we have an unknown copyright/license status… there will be one of these guys…

EV is set up to be self sufficient, meaning that all its operating costs are potentially paid for via ad fees, affiliate sale referral fees, donations, online store, κτλ. EV is willing to and may participate in affiliate or other programs designed to provide a means for webmasters to earn advertising/commission fees by linking to products/services. EV is willing to and may advertise, endorse, promote, and/or review any product/service; and all such advertisements, endorsements, promotions, and reviews reflect to the best of each respective author’s ability, honest unbiased beliefs/opinions, verifiable findings, and/or real experience.

If there is a product/service advertised, endorsed, promoted, and/or reviewed on EV that you have had less than satisfactory or valuable experience with, please let us know; your intelligent opinions are of value to us in determining what products/services meet the standards of our readers, and thus our own.

Nevertheless, EV is not (and will not be held) liable or in any way responsible for any result of any transaction (with any company, group, or individual vendor) resulting from any advertisement, endorsement, promotion, or review found anywhere on EV. Furthermore, EV is not (and will not be held) liable or in any way responsible for, including regarding keeping up to date concerning, any modification or discontinuation of any product or service advertised, endorsed, promoted, or reviewed on EV, and EV makes no warranties or guarantees; any and all warranties and guarantees are made by the companies, groups, or individual vendors themselves.

Products to be advertised, endorsed, promoted, or reviewed may be sent directly to EV without prior notification, but doing so does not guarantee that the product sent will be advertised, endorsed, promoted, or reviewed. EV reserves the rights to not advertise, endorse, promote, or review, and to not post any advertisement, endorsement, promotion, or review, of any product not specifically requested or if the product does not meet EV standards or simply ‘because’.

Send products to be reviewed to:

Troy Boylan
Ecoculture Village
799 H St. #4460
Arcata, CA 95518

(Please insure against USPS loss!)

If EV chooses to advertise, endorse, promote, or review your product, any EV advertisement, endorsement, promotion, or review will usually, but is not guaranteed to, be completed within four weeks from the time it is received. Because we consider the free giving of review products to be part of honest marketing campaigns, and because of associated costs, no product sent to EV will be returned under any circumstance, nor shall any review product be paid for or be considered payment for any advertisement, endorsement, promotion, or review under any circumstance.

If in doubt as to whether your product meets the EV product review criteria, please contact us.
