Sponsored links, affiliate tracking & commissions

Our website may contain adverts, sponsored and  affiliate links on some pages.

We only use  trusted advertising partners who each have high standards of user  privacy and security. However we do not control the actual adverts seen /  displayed by our advertising partners. Our ad partners may  collect  data and use cookies for ad personalisation and measurement. Where ad  preferences are requested as 'non-personalised' cookies may still be  used for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting and to combat fraud  and abuse.

Clickable sponsored or affiliate links may be displayed as a website URL like this; or as a titled text link like this: How To Start A Blog.
