This policy is valid from December 15, 2016
IdiomsOnline is a participant in the Amazon Affiliate Program.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this website.. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements. This page, however, discloses information concerning links used on the site known as ‘affiliate links.’
Idioms.Online is not an affiliate advertising site. In other words, the purpose of this site is not to advertise products. There are very few products I could advertise that are related to Idioms! However, as this site concerns history and language, I may include links to useful books on the site, related to the pages on which the links are placed.
These affiliate links to specific products are placed within articles, specifically to Amazon.com. If such a link exists on a page, the existence of affiliate link(s) will be disclosed at the end of the article, which reads: “This article contains one or more Amazon affiliate links.” A link to this full disclosure will also be provided. If no such disclosure appears on a page, there is no affiliate link present on the page.
An affiliate link means that if you click on them and make a purchase, I may be paid a small commission. This affiliate relationship will not increase the price of your purchase. I only use affiliate links when I have a reasonable belief (based on research and/or personal experience) that a product or service may be worthwhile. However, you must still make your own determination as to the value and reliability of any products or services linked to from this website. From time to time, I may link to a product for informational purposes, at which times I make it clear from the context of the link whether or not I am actually recommending the product (this is rare).
In addition to textually referenced links to products within articles, other types of Amazon advertisements may appear on pages which include text and images of recommended products or related products. These will be clearly marked as advertisements. These and other promotional banners advertising special programs or discounts, and clearly identifiable as Amazon promotions, are covered by this general affiliate disclosure.
I am not compelled in any way, by any person or organization, to place certain links to certain products, nor do I ever receive or accept direct compensation for reviewing or linking to a product. The products that I link to within the body of the Idiom articles are chosen by me, at my own discretion, and I will only be paid should you make a purchase from Amazon as a result of clicking on one of these links.
I would ask that if you do purchase a product after clicking on a link from this site, that you allow me to collect this small commission, to help support the site’s expenses, and help me make a living. These commissions in no way add to your cost. However, if you wish to purchase a product after clicking on a link, but would prefer that I not receive a commission, you can disable this commission by clearing your browser cache of any Amazon cookies, or by simply clearing all cookies. Remember that clearing all cookies may sometimes sign you out of membership sites. It is usually possible, however, to clear cookies received only from the last hour, or last several hours, or to specifically clear Amazon cookies.
Any purchases you make, of course, are at your own discretion, and you should compare and research to make sure you get the product that is best for you.
I have no direct financial relationship, as an employee or consultant, with any company or entity that may advertise on this website, via third party ad networks (Google Adsense), or with any company or entity whose product I may link to.
