This Influencer Disclosure Policy is valid as of February 1, 2024. This policy covers the below social channels owned and managed by Country Roads Sourdough :

  • Instagram Handle : @countryroadssourdough
  • Facebook Handle : @countryroadssourdough
  • Blog : www.countryroadssourdough.com

These channels strive to abide by the FTC Guidelines for online influencers. The owner believes in honesty of relationship, opinion, and identity. The compensation the owner receives from marketers may influence our content, topics or posts made to our social channels. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content in accordance with the FTC Guidelines.

The owner of these social channels may be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of these social media channels sometimes receive 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 through these channels 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 of the sections of this site will allow you to purchase different products and services online provided by other merchants, and not us. Some of the links that I post on our site are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission.*

We are not responsible for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or any other aspect of these products and services. In addition, a merchant will likely have privacy and data collection practices that are different from ours. If you make a purchase from a merchant on their site or on a site that we have posted a link to, the information obtained during your visit to that merchant’s online store or site, and the information that you give as part of the transaction, such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, and credit card number, may be collected the merchant and us. For more information regarding a merchant, its online store, its privacy policies, and/or any additional terms and conditions that may apply, visit that merchant’s website and click on its information links or contact the merchant directly.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
