At TweenParent.com we carefully select articles and products that we believe our readers will find interesting and relevant to their lives as parents of preteens. No one can pay to have products or services included in our editorial content. That's what advertising is for. Messages from our advertisers are clearly marked as sponsored e-mails, banner ads or sponsored links on our Web Site or in your TweenParent.com newsletter. The "Shop" section of TweenParent.com gives our readers the opportunity to access interesting products and services. While we screen these links, our reader should be aware that these sites are a source of revenue for TweenParent. While, TweenParent does not take responsibility for products or your experience outside our site, we would like to hear from you if you have a negative or positive experience. Please send any comments to email@example.com. Of course, "Support A Cause" is completely nonprofit and TweenParent does not gain any revenue from these links.
As we mentioned, occasionally we may send you "Sponsored E-mails" from our advertisers. When you sign up for TweenParent.com you are agreeing not only to get our content delivered to you for free, but also to receive "Sponsored E-Mails" from our advertisers. If you would prefer not to get these e-mails, just unsubscribe from the TweenParent.com newsletter (unfortunately, this means, you won't be getting the TweenParent.com newsletter any more).
In case you were wondering, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. We hate junk mail as much as you do.
