6. Links to Other Web Sites

This blog may contain links to third-party websites that I do not control. Once you leave my blog, you are no longer governed by these Terms. I assume no responsibility for the content or practices of any third party websites.

7. Specific Affiliate Relationship, Sponsored Content, and Paid Promotion Disclosure(s)

Links on this site may use income earning affiliate and referral links. The intent of this website is to share information, and make profit by doing so whenever it is possible to do so in good taste. While I make every attempt to disclose each individual link that leads to an affiliate commission or referral, errors happen, so assume all links are commission-earning or are otherwise sponsored.

My personal  ethics only allow me to accept sponsorship or participate in affiliate or referral programs wherein I believe in the products I’m associated with. I cannot in good conscience recommend products that aren’t up to my own standards or are otherwise not a good fit for my own life. I strive to actually perform due diligence when evaluating the companies I work with.

I will attempt to also use programs that give as much value as I receive to the referred parties involved; many referral programs are reciprocal in nature, and where possible I will opt to use these programs on my site.

‘Reciprocal’ Referral/Affiliate Links

Links labeled ‘Reciprocal’ are Affiliate Links are Reciprocal in nature. Both parties receive value from their use. The value of these programs and all other referrer and affiliate programs change.

Examples of Reciprocal Affiliate Links used on this site:

  • Robinhood – Upon account signup, both the new customer and the referrer receive a (random) free stock, of whatever the current market value of the stock is. Both parties get a free stock, and the value of that stock is randomly issued by Robinhood. Essentially the value is random, so it’s lottery. Most stocks I have recieved have been in the $1-$5 range, but Robinhood claims that there is a chance to get a high value stock. There is a cap on how much income any referer can make from this program, and that is $500 in a year. After I hit this cap, I will remove this offer from my site and it will return the next year if it is still available.
  • Google Fi – Each party receives a $20 account credit. This account credit goes toward phone and other services and products provided by Google Fi, Google’s cell service. When a user of my site uses this link, my phone bill is lowered, and the user gets a credit on their new line when they sign up. Monetarily, I get no more than the other party.

These are just examples of what I’m labeling ‘reciprocal,’ and not a complete digest. There will be others, however I want to make sure the nomenclature of my site is as clear as possible.

In some instances, such as claiming a free stock, product, or other kickback through these affiliate programs, user action is required. The author of this site bears no responsibility for errors made by users of products and services acquired through affiliate or referral links on this site.

Affiliate Relationships

As of this writing I am not involved with many affiliate programs. Amazon, Windscribe, and Namecheap, Envato (via Impact) are examples of programs that I’m involved with. These are not reciprocal in nature. I make money from products and services purchased through these links and that helps me make a living and pay for this site to remain online.

Specific Amazon.com Affiliate statement: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Sponsorship and Sponsored Posts, Videos, Images, Links, and Other Content

When in doubt, assume all links on this site and connected media are either an affiliate, referral, or otherwise sponsored link. I make every effort to disclose sponsored content any relationship I have with any company that generate income, and try to live up to the highest standards of transparency in this regard. When errors occur, I attempt to correct them as quickly as possible.
