Affiliate relationships

If you click on any of the links embedded in our reviews, it’s possible that will earn a commission through a so-called “affiliate relationship.” What’s an affiliate relationship? Essentially, it’s a website’s way of saying “these companies are advertisers.

However, affiliates pay for their ads based on how readers respond. If readers don’t click on the advertiser’s link — or sign up to try the advertiser’s products — the website “affiliate” doesn’t make money. If you do respond to the affiliate link, it might.

We attempt to be as clear as possible about our affiliate relationships, accepting only those that we believe are advantageous to both and our readers.

Affiliate relationships have no impact on our recommendations. They are simply a way to keep our content free.
