12. Links to Other Sites
We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
13. Affiliate Links
You might encounter posts on this webpage or social media (or on other published content) where I use special links to receive a small compensation for sponsoring, endorsing or partnering with another company. In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume this to be true for any content that is marked with either the words “Affiliate link” or the hashtag #af.
When you click an Affiliate link you can make a purchase on the external affiliate company websites. These companies pay me a small commission or compensation for promoting their website or products. Those companies only pay me, when you actually make a purchase and I am not paid per click.
You will not pay anything extra to the external company – in many cases, you even get a lower price than usual. So, you have no financial or other disadvantages by using an Affiliate link.
We only use Affiliate links for products and services that we also use ourself and that we consider worth sharing. Affiliate links are not the main source of income.
14. Children’s Privacy
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
