Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Disclosure Notice and Policy
In the spirit of protecting consumers (you) the FTC requires those of us who have any sort of “material connection” to a company or advertiser to disclose this relationship. Gratefulfoodie is committed to transparency and always sharing this relationship information.
On every blog post or page, Gratefulfoodie will share if the item discussed or reviewed was provided by the company, or if there is a relationship requiring disclosure.
In our commitment to better living with food allergies and asthma, our goal is to share items that we find interesting and that we believe might be of interest to our readers. Therefore, some companies will share their items in hopes we review them. We welcome products for review.
Our opinions are our own though! We never accept payment to review a product with a commitment to saying positive things about the product. Our integrity and trustworthiness to our readers is our priority. Giving our honest opinions is priority. What we love in an item might be the exact reason you do not like an item and vise-versa and what doesn’t rock our world may be exactly what you have been looking for! From time to time we publish a paid post, where a sponsor pays us to write about their product. We will only accept paid posts if we believe the product could be useful and that we feel the product is part of the solution to living a health and happy life with food allergies and/or asthma.
How we earn money
Gratefulfoodie hopes to earn and is happy to welcome income! Our hopes are to invite sponsors or advertisers and to possibly (we’re still noodling this one through) sell products that we believe would be of interest to our readers.
Gratefulfoodie might accept sponsored posts at some point in time and will disclosure on the blog post if indeed, the post was sponsored.
We have established an affiliate link with Amazon.com and will begin linking to this site for items that again, we found useful that might be of interest. We will receive a small percentage of each sales generated by product purchases. We may also participate in other affiliate programs in the future.
Gratefulfoodie is dedicated and committed to our own personal high standards of integrity when it comes to sharing our thoughts about products and it is important to us that our readers understand our relationships with any future sponsors or affiliate programs.
