5. Affiliate Links
There are affiliate product links on this site that link
to products I personally recommend. When you click on an affiliate product link,
you will pass through an Affiliate Network Site prior to landing on the
Merchant's page to view the product you want to look at. The Affiliate Network
Site uses Performance cookies to track which site the visitor has come
from, (i.e. this site) and cookies
are used to record the click so that any resulting sales can be credited to this website as the referring site.
Performance cookies are an important function on this site.
In particular, where voucher codes and discounts are involved this is another important feature because it is a way of saying my site sent you, which means you are entitled to use the discount codes.
