MontereyMommies.com disclosure policy:

This policy is valid from May 1, 2013 and may be changed at any time, without notice.  Small changes and additions may be made to this policy without being noted in any special way in the text.

MontereyMommies.com is a blog edited by Katie Uppman, Erik Uppman, Sandra Moore and Nicole Moore. For questions about this blog, please email Katie at katie@montereymommies.


We believe in creating a family friendly environment where everyone feels comfortable, safe and engaged in community. We request that you be respectful of others. We reserve the right to remove content that is ugly, offensive, abusive, denigrating or completely out of context in order to keep the conversation productive, informative, respectful and lawful.


This blog accepts many forms of compensation, including (but not limited to) sponsorships, advertising, products, and trips.

The compensation received may influence the advertising content, links, or post topics of this blog, but will never influence our writers’ opinions on any subject or product.

Compensation Levels

Compensation levels will be stated clearly at the end of any post that mentions a product, service or location that is covered by any of the levels listed below (or possibly within a post if there are many products listed, such as a gift list).  If no compensation level is listed, it is to be assumed that there was no compensation involved with the post or any products, services or locations mentioned in the post.  For the purposes of these levels we do not consider transportation to and from a local event, or food consumed at an event, as compensation.  Compensation refers to cash, gift certificates, products, or services.

If a writer for Monterey Mommies is given free products of minimal value at a conference, event or meeting that are being given to all attendees, such as bags, books, water bottles, small product samples, coupons, etc., we do not consider these items as compensation and typically will not necessarily disclose them when talking about a product.


The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our writers’ own, unless otherwise stated. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question. Our editors are not responsible for anything that happens to anyone as a result of following advice or reviews, or purchasing a product or service as a result of visiting Monterey Mommies.


Our editors reserve the right to remove any comment that we see fit, for any reason, including but not limited to our mood that particular day. Comments are likely to be removed if they are abusive, spammish (is that a word?) or use offensive language.

In Closing

A super big THANK YOU to Debi at http://sabusykids.com from whom much of this amazing disclosure awesomeness is blatently lifted (but she said it was okay).
