House Of Pheromones is a pheromone review blog and published under my pseudonym PheroJoe. My reviews are based on testing various pheromone colognes and perfume products over a period of time, and no personal data is collected, although some data such as your IP address may be recorded for tracking purposes, identifying spammers, and protecting House Of Pheromones from hack attempts.
Although House Of Pheromones is geared towards finding and recommending the best products to save time and money, HOP (houseofpheromones.com) may also publish negative reviews of products from time to time.
In the past, companies have attempted to remove negative reviews, claiming they are libelous, slanderous, and are protected by “Trade law” which is unlawful.
These reviews are my own personal opinion, are based on facts through testing, and protected under free speech.
Attempting to remove negative reviews with false DMCA complaints, claiming it is astroturfing, libelous, defamation, slanderous, or “unfair trade”, is a thinly veiled suppression of free speech.
All efforts are taken to ensure that criticism is personal and factual from testing vendor products.
In any attempt to litigate with House Of Pheromones will result in a swift dismissal in court, because evidence is recorded (receipts, the actual product, notes) as well as the pure subjectivity of the nature of pheromones.
