This website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
We also participate in other affiliate programs and sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.
We receive compensation for our reviews, recommendations, affiliate links, and/or any other method of influencing we do that results in us obtaining a benefit. This does not increase the price you pay for the product, and it helps us keep this website running – so thank you!
The Long Boring Version
This affiliate disclosure policy (“Policy”) applies to your use of our website and any services we offer through it.
What is an affiliate link?
An affiliate link is a special kind of link that allows us to earn a commission on sales made through that link. When you click on an affiliate link and make a purchase, we may receive a commission from the company that sells the product or service.
What is an affiliate disclosure?
An affiliate disclosure is a statement that tells readers that we have a financial relationship with a company and that we may receive compensation if they purchase products or services through our affiliate links.
Why do we need an affiliate disclosure?
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires us to disclose any relationships we have with companies whose products or services we promote. This means that if we have an affiliate relationship with a company, we must let our readers know about it.
What are the consequences of not disclosing an affiliate relationship?
If we fail to disclose our affiliate relationships, we could be fined or penalized by the FTC. In some cases, we could even be banned from promoting products or services altogether.
How do I know if a link is an affiliate link?
If a link has an affiliate disclosure next to it, then it’s an affiliate link. If there is no disclosure, then we don’t have an affiliate relationship with the company.
Are all of the links on your site affiliate links?
No, not all of the links on our site are affiliate links. We only have affiliate relationships with companies whose products or services we genuinely recommend and believe in.
What if I click on an affiliate link and don’t buy anything?
If you click on an affiliate link and don’t buy anything, we still earn a commission. This is because most companies have what’s called a “cookie” system in place. This means that even if you don’t buy anything, the company will remember that you clicked on our link and may give us a commission if you purchase something from them in the future.
Do I have to pay anything extra if I click on an affiliate link?
No, you don’t have to pay anything extra if you click on an affiliate link. The price of the product or service will be the same whether you use our affiliate link or not.
Can I trust your reviews?
ABSOLUTELY, you can trust our reviews. We never accept money in exchange for positive reviews. We follow a very strict ethics policy and all our reviews are honest and unbiased.
What if I have more questions?
If you have any questions about our affiliate disclosure policy, please contact us, and we’ll be happy to answer them.
