To help fund the running of this website, we use Google Ads and a number of Affiliate Links to products that we like. We haven’t gone overboard with advertising because, quite frankly, we think ad’s are annoying just like everybody else does.
This works using cookies – small text files that are placed on your computer. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better.
However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site (this will stop the Affiliate links from working) and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
What is an Affiliate Link?
An Affiliate Link looks like a normal link to a product – such as something on Amazon. It means that when you follow this type of link to another page, a cookie is placed on your computer to track that you have followed a link.
Using an affiliate link doesn’t cost you anything – it just means that if you make a purchase of something after following one of our links, we will get a small percentage from that company as a thank you for advertising them. This is usually less than 10% of the total amount you have spent – so we are talking pence, not big bucks.
We don’t get any information about you or what you have bought if you use these links. We don’t mention specific products because we think we can make money – we include them because we genuinely like them and want to share them with you.
Examples of products that we have linked to include Sugru, Simba, Regatta and EE. And anything that we link to on Amazon.
