Affiliate Link Disclosure

Affiliate programs are programs where I get a small percentage kickback of anything you purchase through an affiliate link on my site.

Anytime I place affiliate links in my articles, I will place a “disclosure” before any affiliate links to let you know they’re there.

The Afiliate program requires that I make this legal statement to participate:

“ is a participant in the Services Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking

A third party affiliate marketing network, uses cookies to help make sure I get a commission when you buy a product after clicking on a link or ad banner that takes you to the site of one of their merchants. You can read Privacy Policy.”
