BjjBuddy promise: we only work with companies we know you’ll love so you can rest assured, when we say we like a brand, we mean it! This is our ad guarantee to you.
In order for BjjBuddy.com to function and provide you, the reader, continuous and free content, we use advertising and affiliate links to third party sites in order to obtain earnings to help support the cost of operation, growth and expansion of the site.
Despite that, your trust is more important to us. We always offer our honest opinion about a product or service and provide you with items that we feel may be useful on your BJJ journey. This is clearly understood by each one of the companies / advertisers we currently work with and intend to. We make sure that we work together according to this policy that reserves us the right to refuse anyone who disagrees with it.

The core of our community is mutual respect. We offer our 100% commitment to our readers to respect you and operate BJJBuddy with integrity keeping your best interests at the root of everything we do.
To be a part of this community the one thing we ask is that you also commit to respect us and each other. If we can maintain this core value, our community will continue to thrive.
We thank you in advance for this commitment and your participation in our blog and in our online social communities.
FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION RULES
Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC ( Federal Trade Commission) requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. We will always disclose any material relationship, policies and business practices we have. Please see below for further details.
For the sake of simplifying the disclosure process, please assume that when you click on any and every link to a retailer or service provider within the entire BjjBuddy.com website, it is linked to an affiliate third party site wherein a small commission will be earned if you purchase an item. The price you pay is not affected.
In addition to various retailer affiliate programs, we are also 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.
These affiliate links help cover costs to run and maintain a website and keep the content free.
Products reviewed on BjjBuddy.com include items that we personally have purchased, complimentary merchandise that has been provided for consideration, and paid advertisements (labeled as “advertorials”).
We accept products for review but only publish reviews for items we believe to be relevant to the BjjBuddy.com readers. If an item is deemed inappropriate for the BjjBuddy.com reader, a review is not published.
Published product reviews include our honest and personal opinion for products that work for us and may also work for you. We refuse to work with any brand or product that does not make sense for our readers. This ensures that the companies we do feature we genuinely like.
Occasionally, guest contributors and bloggers (non-members of the BjjBuddy.com team) share their product reviews on the site. BjjBuddy.com does not claim to have tested these items and is not responsible for the opinions shared by these writers.
ADVERTORIALS AND GENERAL CONTENT
Products or services that have not been personally reviewed by a member of the BjjBuddy.com team may be shared with you in an unbiased and informative manner so that you may form your own opinion of the item. This may include products featured in “advertorials” or general editorial content within the site.
Paid editorials are disclosed within the individual article by being labeled as “advertorial”.
Please note: Products mentioned within BjjBuddy.com may include items we personally use, that other travelers recommend, and general editorial suggestions based on relevancy.
While we believe that providing you sources enhances your experience on BjjBuddy.com, we make sure to always present our honest opinions to the best of our knowledge and ability.
BjjBuddy.com is not responsible for any purchases made on third party sites. It is up to the buyer to research all products and services before purchasing.
