This is a perfectly legitimate means of monetizing our website so that we can pay to operate the site. We are happy to disclose any affiliate relationships we have to you.
Additionally, we disclose that the hyperlinks placed on this site are most often shortened, and sometimes cloaked to conceal lengthy unattractive links for the purposes of tracking and functionality. This is not to facilitate the hiding anything. We take pride in our relationships with the outstanding vendors and the products and services we feature on our site. Link cloaking, tracking and shortening is very commonly done on websites of all types.
Moreover, we receive no money or physical products as a direct exchange for any posts or reviews you come across on our site. No one pays or has paid us to write posts or review products or services. However, we will tell you that there is a possibility that our posts and reviews are or have been swayed by our affiliate relationships. Some may consider this a conflict of interest.
We do not think there is a conflict of interest, but you must decide yourself by considering our affiliate relationships and the techniques we use for placing links as we’ve discussed.
