On occasions I may endorse products on my Website such as the underwater camera I use or a particular medium I use in my artwork. In addition I may endorse establishments offering a service that I have had personal experience of using, e.g., a diving centre. I do not get paid for endorsing, recommending, or drawing attention to a product or establishment and I take my reputation and credibility seriously by only endorsing a product that I have tried and /or researched. Were I ever to get paid for an endorsement, I would disclose this in my Terms of Service. There is always the possibility that a supplier may offer a discount in the knowledge that my website is raising the profile of thereby endorsing their product. If any such compensation/reward as this were to be made, I would amend my Conditions of Service to reflect this.
