Advertorial and Sponsored Content
Please note: You may occasionally see sponsored posts appear across the magazine. Whilst we try to limit the use of adverts as much as possible, when they are used, we make every effort to ensure that they appear in a format that is both relevant and engaging for our reader-base. When you see Advertorial or AD within our copy it simply means that a company has paid us a small fee in return for displaying their information (or product) with an article. We still have full creative control over our sponsored/AD posts and ensure that they are in-keeping with our readers interests. We will clearly use the term Avertorial Feature or Collaborative Feature within our content where required.
Gifted products – Some of the products that you read about across the website may have occasionally been provided by companies on a complimentary basis for review or feature. If an item has been gifted to us by a brand we always ensure that we still have full creative control over the content and that all opinions are our own. Brands: Please note that gifting of product does not guarantee inclusion or review unless specifically discussed with us directly in advance.
We do also use affiliate links and sponsored links in some of our posts. Affiliate links mean that if you choose to purchase an item via our link, we may receive a small payment from this sale. This is usually only a few pennies and does not add any additional charge to your purchase. You will find a disclaimer at the end of our posts.
We allow third party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our Web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g. click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
