11) Reviews and Affiliate Disclosure
We participate in various affiliate marketing programmes, which means we sometimes get paid commissions on purchases made through our links to retailer sites.
For transparency, the pages which may feature these links (which are known as “affiliate links”) are clearly labelled with a notice shown below the headline of the page. The notice also features a link through to our Affiliate Disclosure page for further information.
We may also may link to general retail sites where we may receive an affiliate commission, but in those cases we have no direct relationship with the company that manufactures the product. For example, we may link to a particular product on Amazon.com and receive a commission. This is solely a relationship with Amazon, and not a relationship with the product’s manufacturer.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and Amazon EU Associates Programme, both of which are affiliate advertising programmes designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon’s websites.
Sometimes, companies send us free products in return for us considering to write a review. We also sometimes receive compensation from the companies whose products we review.
We are independently owned and the opinions expressed in our review articles are our own. Our product reviews and guides are produced through a mix of expert opinion and real-world testing. In some cases, we may simply provide a summary of the findings of customers and/or other reviewers from elsewhere.
Please see our Affiliate Disclosure page for full details of the companies we have affiliate relationships with and/or have received products from.
