UniGuide participates in affiliate and advertising programs, whereby I may earn fees or commissions if you decide to take certain actions on UniGuide, such as clicking on a text or banner advertisement, or clicking images or text links for products and services, and then purchasing a product or service when it links to affiliate partner site, such as Amazon, Etsy, or other companies of which UniGuide is an affiliate partner. Advertisements and affiliate links may appear within the content of pages, sidebars, blog posts, or other places throughout UniGuide.

UniGuide is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Amazon, the Amazon logo, AmazonSupply, and the AmazonSupply logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates. Through this program and others, I may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.

While I do my best to only present products and services on UniGuide that I would personally recommend to friends and family or use myself, I do not always have control over the content of the advertisements or the conduct of the third parties whose advertising content may served by advertising and affiliate partners. Taking actions, such as clicking and buying products, is entirely up to you.

If you click on an ad on UniGuide and are taken to a third party website, please check that site’s privacy policy if you want to learn how your personal information is used by that site, including whether that site is tracking your behavior or clicks and whether that site is using cookies or other persistent identifiers.

No advertiser or affiliate partner will ever control the content, articles, blog posts, or topics  that are presented on UniGuide. In addition to writing about products and services for which I may earn a commission or fee, I also write about products and services for which I do not get any commissions or fees. The opinions expressed about products and services on UniGuide are entirely my own and those of guest writers who may also write content for UniGuide.

Except for the content in banner advertisements that might be served by third party ad networks, such as Google AdSense, of which I do not have control, I do my best to promote products and services on UniGuide that are Earth-friendly, animal-friendly, and healthy for people. By Earth-friendly I mean products and services that are made, distributed, and disposed of with the minimal impact on the Earth’s natural resources; and by animal-friendly, I mean products and services that do not use or harm animals in their creation, production, distribution, use, or disposal. Products that are healthy for people include those that help the mind, body, and spirit to thrive.

I will be the first to tell you that I am not an expert on sustainability, human health, or animal welfare. While I strive to learn more about these topics every single day, I know there are many steps in the life cycle of products – from design, to testing, manufacturing, distribution, and disposal – which can have a negative impact on people, animals, and the planet. Ideally, every step in the process of product creation and disposal should be environmentally sustainable and free of human and animal suffering. It’s a tall order in our modern world, but it’s not impossible. The collective brain power of human beings is more than capable of achieving such an ideal. It is my hope that as I present products and services on UniGuide, they will fit this ideal. If I fall short due to ignorance or misinformation, I hope that visitors to UniGuide will share some of their collective brain power and correct me, and I will certainly update content on UniGuide as I become better educated. My goal is to be transparent and to avoid “green washing” at all costs. I will continually expand my knowledge and will do as much as is within my power to provide healthy, high-quality, and desirable products and services to visitors who come to UniGuide.

If you see a product or service on UniGuide that does not fit the above principles, please contact me. Likewise, if you are an entrepreneur or other representative of any products or services presented on UniGuide and you would like to see them presented in a different way or removed from the site altogether, please contact me. The products, services, images, and original manufacturer product information on UniGuide are the property of the makers of those products and are presented on UniGuide only as a means to educate consumers and to help promote those products and services.
