This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. This blog does accept cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. We do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.
The owner of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers' own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
Some posts may contain affiliate links that I receive commission or payment from in exchange for referrals.

In the event of a giveaway I only recommend products or services I personally use or believe will be a good fit for my readers. Giveaways are open to Legal Residents (18 years of age or older) of the US only unless otherwise stated. Prizes cannot be shipped to PO Boxes. Winner will be selected randomly and be notified by email. Winner will have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is selected. Please note that Growing Up Madison is not responsible for sponsors that do not fulfill their prizes. I have represented each sponsor with the expectation they will fulfill their prize and in a timely manner. I will contact the sponsor regarding your prize(s). The sponsors, in most cases, are shipping their items to you directly. I will make every effort to assist you in obtaining your prize. If there is an issue with a sponsor, please notify Growing Up Madison within 30 days for assistance, after that we may be unable to assist you.
The product provided for the review was free of charge from the company. The product offered for the giveaway is free of charge, no purchase necessary.
