What is an Affiliate Program or Affiliate Link?
There are multiple affiliate programs and also brands that do their own affiliate links so each company may do things a bit differently. However, they are all based on the same idea. That idea is to provide us with a link to their website or to their specific product and then provide us a commission if a transaction takes place. Since each program differs the commission percentage can vary but typically is anywhere from 1% to 10% of the total cost of the product. Sometimes we get no commission and sometimes we get a higher commission. It all depends on the type of product and what the affiliate program is willing to offer.
Most outbound links are affiliate links. If you have a question about any affiliate links, feel free to contact us.
Buying Products Through Our Affiliate Links
Add Your Heading Text Here
On www.dearnest.net, you may see a price for a certain product or a possible sale price. The price you see on www.dearnest.net does NOT guarantee the price you will pay on the website we refer you to. At no point in time can the price mentioned on our website be matched with the company we refer you to or any other company for that matter. Company’s change prices daily and it’s very difficult to be 100% accurate on every single product page, blog post, or sale we might mention. If something is on sale, you can almost guarantee the price will increase after the sale is over.
At www.dearnest.net, we do our VERY BEST to keep pricing as accurate as possible and we even check the prices every few months and update them accordingly. If you notice a price is off, please contact us and put “Price Discrepancy” in the subject line. This will not only help us but it will help future viewers of ours and for that, we thank you.
Image Use Disclosure
Occasionally images used on www.dearnest.net are found on the internet and are believed to be of public domain. We could have images from search engines, social media, any copyright-free image provider website, etc. Images may be copyright to their respectful owner. If you are the owner of an image that you see and want to be removed, please contact us and we will remove it as soon as possible. Also if you are an owner of an image and don’t mind us using it, but would like to be credited please contact us and we would be happy to do so. Sometimes what happens is someone else takes an image and claims it as their own and then describes it as public domain so please contact us if this is what appears to have happened.
Any image that has a Dearnest watermark, or that we state was taken by us, is our property. Please review our Copyright Policy for further information regarding images.
In some sections of the website, we gather images, mostly from Pinterest or Instagram, and we do our very best to cite the picture properly from the original source. All textual content on this website is uniquely written by www.dearnest.net. We find pictures that we like and we give our unique opinion on the picture. If you notice your picture is being used and is improperly cited, please let us know immediately so we can fix it. Also if you would like your picture removed, we will do that upon request.
We share all blog posts on our various social media channels so your picture may appear there. We do NOT directly upload any images to social media without having a direct link to the associated post.
Product Reviews And Sponsored Products Disclosure
We have a dedicated section for Product Reviews where we review various products. Some products are purchased by us and then reviewed, others are reviewed based on hours of research through forums, other customer reviews, and blogs. In the case of sponsored posts, we have either received a free product in exchange for an unbiased review, or we have been compensated in some fashion for reviewing the product.
Whichever way we obtain the product does NOT affect our opinion or review. All reviews are opinion-based and shouldn’t be taken as fact. We base all product reviews on how we liked the product and if the product met our expectations based on what the packaging or website told us. We do NOT review every single product and we may reject the company from sending us products. If we find a company we like, we may inquire them to send us some products to review. This does NOT affect our opinion of the product once it is in our possession. We are very reasonable and most reviews we find the positive within the product. We do not like to bash company’s or products but if the product in our opinion is unacceptable or bad, we will write about it.
