I make money on this website through affiliate programs. If you click an affiliate link or ad banner and buy the product, you help support this website because I’ll get a percentage of that sale.
Currently I’m an affiliate for Amazon and Google Adsense.
What this means for you:
• I do not and will not recommend a product just because I’m an affiliate.
• I became an affiliate to earn some revenue towards the costs of running and maintaining this website. Where I have direct control over which ads are served on this website I offer only products that are directly related to the topic of this website and products that a reader/subscriber would have a genuine interest in or need of.
• I do not recommend products just for the sake of making money.
• I recommend products because I think they are valuable to my readers.
• I do not let the compensation I receive influence the content, topics, posts, or opinions expressed on this website.
• I respect and value my readers too much to write anything other than my own genuine and objective opinions and advice.
Just like this website, my Disclosure Policy is a work in progress. As the revenue streams evolve, so will this page.
