Advertising Disclosure and Information

Full Transparency

There are affiliate links on this site. You knew that if you already noticed the ad blocks on the site (winky face). So, I may earn small commissions from clicks and/or purchases resulting from clicks.

Since I spend countless hours maintaining this website and writing articles, all without earning a pay cheque, advertising is very important to me because it helps me to spend my time on writing the useful Green Niackery, JourNiackery, and MiscellaNiackery articles that you love and rely on. Any income generated through affiliates is greatly appreciated!

And so, in the past, I may have also placed relevant affiliate links directly in the text. These links have now been removed, but some may inadvertently remain. Rest assured that I always made an effort to ensure full disclosure on those links, since they're not quite as obvious. If any still exist, after each affiliate link, an affiliate disclosure notice will link back to this page. But the same principle applies: I may earn small commissions from clicks and/or purchases resulting from clicks.

Other forms of advertising may also generate compensation.

For more information on how clicks and/or purchases are tracked, see the Niackery Privacy Policy by choosing from the tabs above.
