Affiliate/Associate Programs

The Grove & Company, Inc. (“The Grove & Co.”) and some if its blog authors are members of several affiliate programs which means they may receive compensation when readers choose to purchase products through The Grove & Co.’s website/affiliate links. The Grove & Co. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates. This is how The Grove & Co. works: It is our mission to research and find wonderful products to share with all of you. We have high standards and will not post any blogs/reviews or sell any items in our Marketplace that we ourselves wouldn’t recommend to our friends and family. We have our favorite finds and have posted links to our affiliates so you are able to purchase the items directly from our affiliates. It’s like a referral program. If you purchase something from one of our affiliates, we get a portion of the sale from our affiliate. It would be your way of saying, “Thanks!” for finding something really great. We appreciate your support!

Product Review DISCLAIMER

All blog posts/reviews are based solely on the opinion of the author and may not reflect the opinion of the manufacturer or The Grove & Co.. Unless otherwise indicated in the blog post/review itself, neither the author nor The Grove & Co. have been paid to post the review nor have received any free product(s). If a company would like The Grove & Co. to review their product(s) and/or send free samples for us to try, it does not guarantee that The Grove & Co. will blog about the company or the product or post the product in our Marketplace. If we do receive free product(s) from a company, the author will indicate such information in the blog post/review itself. Even if a product is received for free, please know that it is the policy of The Grove & Co. for the author to remain unbiased in his or her review of the product. We are here to provide you with honest and unbiased product reviews and if we receive a product for free it will in no way influence our authors’ reviews. The Grove & Co.’s blog authors find and research products that they themselves would be interested in personally and then purchase them to try for themselves. If the authors like a product they try, then they share their opinions with the readers through The Grove & Co.’s blog. If a product is sampled and does not meet the standards of The Grove & Co. and/or the author’s personal standards, it simply will not get mentioned in a review. It is The Grove & Co.\’s policy and philosophy that “If we don\’t have anything nice to say, we won\’t say anything at all”.
