1. Opinions expressed here are just that-opinions. I'm sorry if anyone gets offended, hurt or otherwise, its not my intention, but it is my blog and I can voice my opinion.
2. I moderate my comment section. If you disagree with something I say, you can tell me. Please know that if you do so in an aggressive, disrespectful, or derogatory manner, I have the right to not approve your comment. The same applies to responses to other commentors. You can disagree, just don't be a dick about it otherwise your comment won't get posted.
3. Every picture, thought, video, etc on this is mine unless otherwise noted. While I'd like to tell you not to steal any material here, I can't really stop you. What I do ask is that you use common decency and if you use something, please link back. Linking back to the exact post would be ideal, but if you don't feel that motivated, linking back to the site will do.
4. I am not paid to review any product, service, show, etc. One day I hope to be a big enough web presence to be approached for sponsored posts, but for now- its all me. I have done some sponsored giveaways (where I wasn't compensated) though and for that reason, I do have a nicely written disclosure policy in place for when these things occur. Please see below.

I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner of KMT may be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner of this blog may receive compensation for her posts or advertisements, she will always give her honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blogger's own.

Unless otherwise stated, all giveaways are for US addresses only. No giveaway accounts can be used as entries for my giveaways. Meaning, if your Twitter/Tumblr/IG, etc is very obviously used for contests/giveaways only, your entries will be removed and you will no longer be eligible to win (unless you resubmit with personal accounts). It defeats the purpose of me having you promote the giveaway if you're promoting to an audience of no one or other giveaway accounts. I know that sounds harsh, but that's how all blogs operate. Giveaways are a chance for us to get new readers and increased traffic. Winners will be contacted by email and will have 48 hours to respond to that email. If no response is received, a new winner will be chosen.
Now, if I do a sponsored giveaway, the rules may change according to who is sponsoring the giveaway. I always outline the rules of my giveaways on their respective posts, so follow what is on the post. These rules above are how I personally run the giveaways that I buy items for. I hope to branch out to international participation soon, but right now I can't afford it :(
