The disclosure that follows is our attempt to fully comply with the FTC’s policy that demands we be transparent about any and all affiliate relations we may have on this website. In plain English you, the visitor or customer, should assume that any and all links on this site are affiliate links.
If you click on these links and go visit the resulting site, a cookie will be set in your web browser that will cause us to receive a commission “IF” you purchase a product on the other end. This is a legitimate way to monetize and pay for the operation of web sites and we gladly reveal our affiliate relationships to you.
In addition we fully disclose that hyperlinks on this site are in most cases shortened, and in some cases cloaked to hide long ugly links for functionality and tracking purposes. We have nothing to hide and we are proud of our relationship with the fine vendors, products and services found on this site. Link tracking, shortening and cloaking is a very common practice on all types of web sites.
Further, we do not receive physical products or cash directly in exchange for any reviews or posts you find on this site. No one has paid us to do reviews or posts. We have to tell you that it is possible that our reviews and posts are influenced by our affiliate relationships and may create a conflict of interest.
We do not believe a conflict of interest exists, but you, the visitor or customer, must decide by considering the affiliate relationships and link techniques we have described. Obviously we would like you to buy the service or products we write about and we are influenced by that fact. We avoid conflict by only reviewing or posting about products and services we trust. We strive to always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on topics or products we write about and promote.
Other vendors may also pay to place advertising on our sites in the form of banners, widgets, and hyperlinks. These are paid advertisements and while we do our best to only allow quality products and services to be advertised on our site, we are not responsible for claims or testimonials made on paid advertising links.
The following represents a more legally worded document but basically states the same information presented in the English Translation above.
As directed by the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, (see 16 CFR Part 255) – Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising, the purpose of this policy is to establish any compensatory affiliation between the site owner and affiliate networks Amazon, Clickbank, Commission Junction, Google, Share-A-Sale and any individual vendors they represent and that the site owner has established an affiliate relationship.

This website may at times accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of affiliate compensation.
The compensation received may or may not influence the advertising content, topics or posts made on this site. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content. Not all content is written or presented for the sole purpose of receiving affiliate income.
The owner(s) of this website is compensated through various affiliate programs and some content presents opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this website may receive affiliate compensation for reviews or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely the website’s’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This website does contain some content which may or may not present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be immediately identified due to the nature of posting methods. When possible every attempt will be made to identify advertising from general non-advertising content.
How do affiliates earn money?
Each merchant decides when joining an affiliate network how much commission they are willing to pay affiliates.
The most common form of commission structure is based on the CPS (or commission per sale) model.
Some markets which are extremely competitive will offer higher commissions than less competitive industries.
Affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick scheme and does take hard work and dedication. Most affiliates will have to work hard for at least 12 months before being able to replace their main income source.
How do I know if I visited an affiliate site?
Affiliate networks give their affiliates special links which the affiliate uses to refer the visitors from their site to the merchants website.
Looking for these URL’s as you hover over banners or text links will help you identify if visitors are going directly to the merchant’s website or via an affiliate’s links.
Example network links The following are examples of the most common affiliate networks: Affiliate Future – http://scripts.affiliatefuture.com/AFClick.asp?affiliateID=XXXX Affiliate Window – http://www.awin1.com/awclick.php?&id=XXXX MoreNiche – http://track.moreniche.com/hit.php?w=XXXXXX&s=XXX
How does visiting an affiliate site affect me?
Due to the nature of affiliate marketing you will be directed to the merchant’s own website when you click on an affiliate link. This means that regardless if you visit the website directly or via an affiliate, you will see the same result.
You will pay the same purchase price for goods/services, therefore passing through an affiliate site will have no direct impact on your purchase.
All of our affiliates operate in accordance with our best practice framework and therefore we ensure a strict degree of consumer transparency.
If however, you feel that you are being misled by an affiliate website please contact us…
