Although many of the items reviewed on I Heart Heels are purchased, the site does accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. While the site attempts to accept only products of interest in hopes of lessening negative reviews, it does not guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not preapproved by PR representatives or brands. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review. Editorial timeline can be anywhere from 4-6 weeks from receipt of a product. Beginning in December 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives are disclosed as such.
I Heart Heels may occasionally include advertorial or sponsored posts. All sponsored posts that recommend a product or store are disclosed as being as sponsored in the post. Advertorial posts may include an advertisement, but have no affect on the content. E.g. the content is not recommending the product, store, or item in the advertisement. Such posts may or may not be labeled as advertorial.
Affiliate Links and Advertising
I Heart Heels does not currently make use of affiliate links where a commission is earned when a product is purchased using such a link. The site is, however, supported by paid advertisements and is a member of the Glam Media Publisher Network.
No Warranty of Products
I Heart Heels makes no warranties as to the effectiveness or quality of any product. Reviews are based on personal experience and personal opinion. Individual user’s opinion may vary. Comments concerning reviews from users about their experiences are encouraged and welcome.
