Disclosure Policy

Editorial Disclosure

Reviews from our team or contributing writers that appear on Our Websites are based on our personal opinions of the products, services and companies. We recommend that you do your own independent research before purchasing any product or service.

We receive no remuneration or payment in kind from suppliers of products for review – our reviews are independent, unbiased and without outside influence. Products submitted for review are, when requested, returned to manufacturers or suppliers.

However, we wish to disclose that (i) We receive free products from marketers (brands, PR agencies etc.) that we sometimes review or discuss in our editorials or review sections of Our Websites (ii) We may carry affiliate links concerning these products or the companies that sell them where we make affiliate marketing commissions when the link is clicked and a transaction is made such as when you buy a product or sign-up for a service, and (iii) We may run advertisements on our sites concerning some of those products or companies that sell them (and other products sold by such companies) for which we sometimes receive compensation.

No information or content within Our Websites should be construed as ‘medically correct’ and is provided for guidance only. Content from Our Websites should at no time supersede, replace or otherwise invalidate opinions or information sought from your doctor, physiotherapist or other healthcare professional. Always seek the advice of your qualified healthcare professional with any question you may have regarding a medical condition.

Commentary, opinions or other material from Our Websites are not intended to amount to advice on which you should rely. We will not be liable for any errors or omissions in this information nor for the availability of this information. We will not be liable for any losses, injuries, or damages from the display or use of this information.

Affiliate Marketing

We may make affiliate marketing commissions when a banner ad is clicked and a transaction is made such as when you buy a product or sign-up for a service.

About Affiliate Marketing

Some advertisers and retailers pay websites to put their ads on their pages – as with newspapers or TV. Some only pay the website when their link is clicked and a transaction is made, such as when you buy a product or sign-up for a service. This is known as affiliate marketing or online performance marketing.

This type of advertising can take many forms and the links can appear in different formats. One way is via ‘banner ads’ that you see throughout the Internet and Our Websites. If a visitor then clicks on the ad and buys something, we may be rewarded with a small commission, typically a percentage of the sale amount or a fixed sum, for instance when a service is purchased.

Not all ‘performance marketing’ ads use banners. The same kind of link can be included in text. For instance, when a product or service is mentioned on Our Websites it may contain a simple link to it. This text link to the product or service works in exactly the same way as the link in the banner ad, and we may earn commission in the same way.

They are extensively used online and have become part of the fabric and make-up of what has made the internet work so effectively for consumers and businesses. Without cookies many areas of functionality for example, user logins, shopping baskets and other customisation features will not work.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
