Why do I see adverts on this website?
This website is affiliated with: Adobe, Alamy, Amazon Associates Programme, AWIN, PureVPN, Rakuten, SOVRN //Commerce and WIX*
Why do we do this?
This is a way that the website can earn money, through advertising, by providing information and links to products and services sold on online, including, but not limited to, Amazon websites.
You may see quality advertisements from many brands and advertisers.
It’s our policy to make these ads and links relevant, and useful to our users, and appropriate to the site subject and content.
(You may see ads and links for products and services within the photographic and computing, web design and hosting, as well as many other allied and associated creative business sectors)
How does it work?
When a user clicks on an ad, or a link, on the site the advertiser tracks a code. This code (known as a cookie) identifies that we referred the user to them.
If you, the user, purchases a product from them we may earn a small commission on that purchase. This is why we do this… To earn a small commision.
The product costs, to you, do not change, in fact, we often have affiliate deals from retailers that could save the user money.
These links may take the form of banners, text links and image links.
They may appear in the page header and footer, as well as the body content of the website, on both the web pages and the article posts.
Note: Mobile Ads may differ in size, but they are placed in exactly the same way that the desktop and tablet ads are. They work in exactly the same way, and the notifications regarding them are consistent.
All reviews and recommendations, and articles are marked, on the page, with the hashtags #ad #affiliatelinks #earncommission and have a full declaration that states:
Site Declaration: “declaration: site displays ads – they may appear on any page as text and banners. as an amazon associate I may earn from qualifying purchases. more info”.
This declaration is positioned on screen. Above the fold. Scrolling is not required to see it. This helps us to conform to consumer legislation around the world, and may be required if we use the content on social media sites.”
It is our intention to make sure that all the banner ads are clearly defined from the content that we provide, and/or marked as ads if required. Usually, this means placing lines between the advertisement and the site content.
We always make our best efforts to link and promote quality products and services from major brands, these are very often products we use ourselves.
The site also displays Google AdSense advertisements. These are context sensitive, and in some case may even display advertisements for our competitors.
Whilst we are not in control of what the advertisers’ display, we have instructed Google to display advertisements that may be of interest to our core user group. See Example below:
In addition to affiliate advertisements, the site also has an online kit shop. This is a page with kit that we recommend. We provide direct links to the products from various retailers and brands. Once again, If you purchase a product we may earn a commission on that purchase. Technically, this works in exactly the same way as the affiliate links. It is just presented in a different way. There is an advantage to clicking on these links. They are connected to a system that will present customers with the best deal in their locale.
We appreciate your support for, and your interest in, our services and information provided.
