The following describes the Federal Trade Commission Compliance for our Website(s).

AFFILIATE AND RETAIL LINKS
It should also be noted that we only have control over, and thus only accept responsibility for, the content of this our Company’s website authored by us. Regarding any products or services we use, recommend, or otherwise make mention of on our Website, we strive to clearly differentiate between our own products or services versus those of third parties, to facilitate inquiries, support, and customer care. Likewise, just as we may profit from the sale of our own products or services, we may also profit from the sale of others’ products or services at our Website. One or more of our products may be through an Amazon.com affiliate link. This means that links to products on Amazon.com can result in a commission being earned.  It is our goal to embrace the guidelines and requirements of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for the benefit of all, and with that in mind provide the most accurate available to us. Additionally, wherever products or services may give rise to income generation, we endeavor to provide realistic and factual data, but highlight the fact that the variables impacting results are so numerous and uncontrollable that no guarantees are in any way made. You should assume that we may be compensated for purchases of products or services mentioned on this Website that are not created, owned, licensed, or otherwise materially controlled by us. While information, in any form, can arise, at any time, regarding our products & services, there may be times when this results from an affiliate relationship. In other words, we may permit our products & services to be marketed through other individuals, businesses, websites, and otherwise, just as providers of goods and services use retailers and other vendors to make available what they offer.

TESTIMONIALS
Testimonials about our products or services are provided to embellish your understanding of the products and services based on other's opinions. Any representations made by others should be considered prima facie unauthorized. You may also read, hear, or otherwise come into contact with commentary about any of our products & services or offerings, and should assume those have likewise not been authorized. While great effort is made to ensure that testimonials are factually honest, we at SIPC are not liable for errors and omissions.  The results depicted cannot, in any way, be guaranteed or construed as common, typical, expected, normal, or associated with the average user’s experience with any given product or service. Exceptional results may be depicted by our website as highlights, but you are responsible for understanding that atypical outcomes may not reflect your experience. When you proivide a testimonial on our products and services, you acknowledge that by submitting testimonials on our Website or via any other communications such as blogs, forums, email correspondence, etc., you are authorizing SIPC to use your testimonial  in future publications to include (but not limited to) digital, print, and online publications.
