Disclosure & Your Privacy

This blog is a business and a potential source of income for me.  All opinions are my own, and I will only share about products or services that I believe will add value to your life.  Again, I will not promote a product or service that I myself would not or have not used. 

Integrity is chief to me. Gaining and keeping your trust is of high importance at

Emails collected via Interact surveys or Rafflecopter giveaways go directly to my email list. Interact and Rafflecopter never have access to these emails and will not contact you.

I participate in affiliate programs.  Some links in my posts are affiliate links.  If you click through affiliate links and end up making a purchase, I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you.

You have my word, I will only promote products I personally use or can recommend without hesitation.  Most, if not all, of the products and services I talk about I have used or purchased personally. 

From time to time, I may also share products I haven’t paid for when they have valuable free information linked to them.  Online summits are an example.  Online summits work like this: the event takes place over the course of a few specified days or weeks during which speakers’ interviews or presentations are available for free to anyone who chooses to tune in.  Also, anyone who misses the free airing can purchase the replays later.

Very rarely I may promote a product I have not paid for but comes highly recommended by people I trust.  I don’t even have a personal example of this right now.

What is an affiliate link / referral link again?

Sprinkled throughout and my weekly newsletter that folks subscribe to, you may see references to my use of affiliate links or referral links. These references are called disclosures and are a requirement as put forth by the FTC here in the U.S.

They are there to inform you I have a relationship with a particular product or service and if you choose to purchase that product or service via my affiliate link, I will get a small commission. Again, this is at no extra cost to you, but it does help me pay the bills so I can keep bringing you rad family travel tips! I am very grateful for your support in this way. Vielen Dank!

Thank you for supporting Rad Family Travel. 

Currently (as of August 19, 2017), these are the affiliates I may be making a small income from, again, at no additional cost to you:
