We often link to the products and services we talk about. We try to link to familiar companies that have keen pricing and offer a high level of service and support.
If you believe that our destination choices could be improved we welcome the feedback in comments or forums.
Some companies operate affiliate programs, meaning if you purchase the product or service by following a link on our site we could receive a commission. There are often conditions on time, visits and other factors that frequently negate any commission.
We use a tool that automatically checks if link destinations have affiliate programs available. If they do, the tool modifies the link to use the available program.
Our main focus is to provide convenient links to reputable sources for the product/service we reference. Operating an affiliate program is not a condition for linking — keen pricing, service and reputation is.
We use the commission we receive to support the sites, its writers and staff and to purchase products for review or preview. It also allows us to reduce our reliance on advertising.
