The point of this page is to give you the low-down on all the
boring stuff very important policies we have in place. You have a right to know how your data is being collected as well as any financial relationships we have with third parties. So here we go…..
The friendly folks from the FTC would like us to tell you that we may have financial relationships with companies mentioned on this site. We may receive free products, services, and/or monetary compensation in exchange for featured placement of sponsored products or services. This site contains affiliate links, which means we earn a commission if you click through and buy from them. This does not cost you any extra.
We aren’t shills. We only promote products and services we genuinely feel will deliver value to you. No ridiculous weight loss products or get rich quick schemes allowed. We are real humans with legit morals who would probably cry if you thought we were trying to scam you.
