In light of the new Federal Trade Commission Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (16 CFR Part 255), Jacob Hull has created this disclosure policy.
Jacob Hull receives products (games, accessories, etc) from publishers, developers, retailers and other sources free of charge. These products are provided for the sole purpose of reviewing the product on our site, giving our subjective opinion to our readers.
Sending a product to Jacob Hull does not guarantee a review. Jacob Hull maintains complete discretion as to which products he reviews.
At the end of any review based on a product provided for free by the publisher, developer, retailer or other source, Jacob Hull will disclose this information in the following manner:
Review copy provided by [name of publisher, developer, retailer or other source].
If no such disclaimer appears at the end of a review, this most likely means Jacob Hull or the author of the review purchased/rented the product with our/their own funds.
Jacob Hull occasionally receives download points/credits in order to download online games, content, etc for review where the physical product is unavailable or only exists in digital/download form.
Jacob Hull receives no monetary compensation in exchange for his reviews of products provided for free, nor does Jacob Hull accept any compensation, monetary or other, in order to influence a review’s outcome.
Paid advertising on jacobhull.net also has no impact on review scores, nor does it guarantee a review of an advertised product.
