In addition we fully disclose that hyperlinks on this site are often shortened, and in some cases cloaked to hide long ugly links for functionality and tracking purposes.

We do not receive physical products or cash directly in exchange for positive reviews or posts you find on this site, our reviews and posts may be influenced by our affiliate relationships and may constitute to some a conflict of interest.

Obviously we would like you to buy the service or products we write about and we are influenced by that fact.

Other vendors may also pay to place advertising on our sites in the form of banners, widgets and hyperlinks.
