StaticGeek is an independent website staffed with professional journalists, editors, researchers and industry experts. The reviews and articles we write take a lot of time and are quite expensive to produce. Our reviews are non-biased and trustworthy, which is something that we take a lot of pride in.
You may have noticed that sometimes we use links to Amazon and other websites when we review our products. At StaticGeek, we’re consumers too, and sometimes we review products that we have purchased off of these websites. If you decide to click on these links and purchase a product that we’re recommending, then we get paid a small commission (they’re affiliate links). We earn a small commission, but you get to shop with confidence knowing that these websites (that are often well-known and quite large) will deliver your product safely to your home or office.
All our recommendations are based off the merits of the product. In our reviews we try to share pros and cons, what we liked most about the product and whether or not we think the product is worth purchasing. We promise that we would never recommend you purchase something that we would not purchase ourselves.
Producing reviews is very time consuming and expensive and part of the reason we can afford to continue creating these reviews is because we can make money through advertising and affiliate partnerships. That’s how we can keep providing you with high-quality content, without charging you to read our content.
Our editorial team that produce the reviews work completely independently from our business and marketing teams who create these affiliate marketing relationships. Our editorial team doesn’t know who our partners are or what type of relationship we have with them. That’s how we make sure that our marketing partners can’t affect our reviews. Our editorial teams only job is to figure out which product or service is the very best and to share that information with our readers.
Should you choose to buy a product or sign up for a service through StaticGeek (or by clicking one of our affiliate links) we sometimes, but not always, receive a commission. Affiliate programs are really, really common in today’s technology-driven world, so most products have some sort of affiliate program. If they do, we’ll make a small profit. If they don’t, we don’t make anything off that sale. Sure we might be losing money right now by not profiting from a sale, but we feel like in the long-run it will pay off because producing reviews that our readings trust is more valuable than any affiliate program.
So, if you like what you read here at StaticGeek and want to help support our work, please click on our links when you choose to purchase a product. If not, you can always go straight to the product or service that we recommend and skip our affiliate links entirely.
And finally, here’s the official legal lingo for what we so nicely explained above:
Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links on StaticGeek.com are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the affiliate link and purchase the product or fill out a form, we may receive a commission of varying value. Regardless of that commission, we only recommend products and services we believe will add value to our readers and we would use ourselves as consumers. We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2003-title16-vol1/content-detail.html) : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
