Disclosure Policy

While it is a good practice for the visitor of any review site to treat every product recommendation with a healthy degree of skepticism, it would be a mistake to assume that every review is invalid just because there may be a commission paid to the reviewer. Here are some of the readers protections SHW1 attempts to build into all the reviews:

1. Many of the reviews contain lots of factual information that is easily verifiable. SHW1 always tries to provide an honest and accurate assessment.

2. The review includes a section that is a subjective summary. This is based on the personal experience of the reviewer.

3. Attempts are made to establish the general consensus in relation to specific products by reading reviews of those products on other sites, along with user testimonials and SHW1 attempts to portray this overall perception in the reviews.

4. SHW1 always provides links to the manufacturers’ website to provide additional information that is not available in the reviews. Some of this information can include customer testimonials, more specific product details, sales information, free newsletters and even samples.

These are good rules of practice. It is important for the consumer to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer.

If there is not a disclosure policy on a review site, that reviewer may be committing an offense.
