**10. DISCLAIMER.** PU Blog contains strictly opinion-based information. The content of the Site is fact-checked to the best of our abilities but will, no doubt, contain errors of typing, spelling, intent, rumor, presumption, but never errors of style (we think). You might disagree with our choices and that’s fine with us. Just don’t expect us to always know what shoes should go with your new dress–even if it’s a big event–because we can’t swear we’ll be right.
Additionally, PU Blog has developed an affiliate program whereby apparel, jewelry and other fashion related companies sell products through links provided on the Site. In return, PU Blog is paid a varying percentage of the sales price of sales originating from the Site. PU Blog is committed editorial integrity and honesty and by no means does its affiliate program affect what we choose to cover, or what we say in our editorial coverage.
**12. TERMINATION** PU Blog may, in its sole discretion, terminate these Terms of Service and your use or access to the Site immediately and without notice for any reason.
