Disclosure Statement about ControlYourOwnWebSites
Because of new rulings by the FTC and the governments insistence that most of us (yes us, me and everyone associated with this site included) are not capable of knowing an ad from an ink spot, and not knowing that websites cost money to put up and maintain, and that some visitors would resent causing the website owner to make a few cents here and there, we are putting this page up for all to see (although, I doubt many will take the time to read it).
This site is a business site. It may use advertising and other forms of compensation. Such compensation does not influence the information in this site. We always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences. We do not like Junk and products or companies that do not live up to their claims. We will not promote crappy products.
“Ads by Google” if any, ARE NOT selected by us, so if you see a Google ad and a Web page about the same product or service, it is a coincidence. “Ads by Google” are shown that we may NOT have any experience with and in fact May Not even like. On the other hand they May contain ads about some of our FAVORITE products, we just do not know what will be there.
Our recommendations are based on research and personal knowledge. Some of the recommendations you find on this site may be from people and sites we know and trust. At times we may make a small commission on some of these recommendations if you purchase an item from our links. But for many of the recommendations found throughout this site we receive no compensation. We’re simply passing on information that may be of value to each and every visitor.
Compensation received is in the form of a commission for the sale of products. When you click through from this website to an advertiser’s website AND purchase something within a specified time frame, we’ll get a small commission. Also we receive commission through PPC (Paid Per Click),The Google Ads.
PPC means if you click on their ad alone we receive a small commission for each click and not for the purchase of an item. If you do click on one of the ads or links on our site and that leads to a sale, we may receive some sort of commission. Later that merchant may send you more offers with a discount coupon code. If you again go to that site BY WAY of OUR site link, we would also receive a commission.
It cost you NOTHING extra and it helps us continue to offer you information.
We may have third party advertisements through Google, Infolinks, Shopzilla, Shopping.com, and many others. We take part in Commission Junction, LinkShare, ShareAsale, Google Net, and several other affiliate programs in order to add affiliate advertising (from many companies) for products related to this site’s content. We think that this is of benefit to our visitors.
We hope this does not offend you in any way. This is a business for profit site, so we are here to help people and make a living. If you are worried about whether or not a link is going to give us a commission or not, just assume that it does. Not all do by any means, but just to be sure no one feels “taken”, just assume we make something. It does not cost you anything extra and we are able to keep the site up.
Most of the links and ads if any, make only a few cents a click, if you are curious.
We will only accept non-Google sponsorships (IF ANY) from providers of high-quality goods or services. WE appreciate their recognition and support of this site. Rest assured that the actual content on sponsored pages (IF ANY) are independent of any sponsorship or affiliate relationship.
To avoid the appearance of any conflict of interest and in the spirit of full disclosure, we will try to go out of our way to identify all sponsored content to you. A sponsor is a person or business that PAYS for an ad or page on our site. Please do support our sponsors and recommendations. This site takes time and effort to deliver original content, free, to you.
