Updated: 31st May 2020

Transparency statement

TFNation Ltd is committed to providing a clear and transparent service. This document has been written with that aim in mind.

Affiliate Disclaimer

TFNation Ltd participates in several different affiliate partnerships. These partnerships allow TFNation Ltd to earn advertising revenue, by linking to products on partner websites.

How do affiliate links work?

TFNation Ltd displays links to products which can be bought from various websites. If you click one of our affiliate links and then decide to make a purchase, TFNation Ltd is paid a small advertising commission.

How do affiliate links affect me as a customer?

Advertising commissions are paid to TFNation Ltd by the affiliate partner, not by you. There is therefore no financial effect on you as a consumer - the product will be the same price to you, whether or not you use our link.

Does this affect your independence?

No. If we don't like a product, we won't recommend it to you. On the other hand, if we do like a product, we are free to recommend it to you whether or not it is being sold by an affiliate partner. Nobody tells us what to recommend. Nobody reviews our posts or reviews before we post them, and nobody pays us to say anything we don't want to say. If a free product is sent to us for review, we will disclose this information to you. Our website users' trust is worth far more to us than any advertisement, so please rest assured that we at TFNation Ltd will only recommend products we genuinely like and think you might like too.

What do you do with fees earned?

TFNation Ltd is a fully registered private limited company. The company has various bills which need to be paid each month to continue operating. Fees received from affiliate relationships are used to help cover various ongoing costs.
