Cookies and Web Beacons
I do not use cookies to store information when you visit this site.
I do, however, use third party advertisements on and to help support the sites. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on the sites, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit the sites, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

Product Reviews.
Dave's Cupboard purchases products through regular retail channels for review. As of 19 May 2013, we do not accept samples of merchandise and promotional material from manufacturers, distributors, retailers, or their representatives for review purposes. Although promotional material and manufacturer's freebies featured in articles prior to that date were (and always had been) clearly identified as such in our reviews, our observation of the blatantly fawning behavior and bullshit positive reviews by bloggers with lower ethical standards has led us to cut off any acceptance of free goods for review.. Reviews will continue to be based solely on whether or not the product meets our highly subjective standards of awesomeness.

In no event shall Dave's Cupboard or writers contributing content to Dave's Cupboard be liable for any direct, special, indirect or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of use, loss of profits, or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence), or otherwise, arisng out of or in any way connected with the use of this website or the materials contained on, or accessed through, this website.
