Now here’s some of the boring stuff! Below will explain a bit about your privacy in our hands and also the 3rd party services we use. Any other questions that haven’t been answered here can be asked on via our contact page.


Our website contains some affiliate marketing links, which means we get paid commission on sales of those products or services we write about. Our editorial content is not influenced by advertisers or affiliate partnerships.

Skimlinks does use cookies and web beacons to collect non-Personally Identifiable Information relating to Users. This non-Personally Identifiable Information is used by Skimlinks to optimize the performance and yield of the Service, to provide comprehensive reporting to Merchants, and to provide aggregate reporting to Publishers for the purpose of helping them optimize their content and marketing for Merchants. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is anonymous and cannot generally be used to identify a specific person.

If you wish to opt out of Skimlinks affiliate marketing links it’s very easy and you can do it here.


Our website uses Google adsense ads across posts and pages. Usually these are served according to the cookies stored from other sites you have visited. For example if you have viewed a website on Yamaha guitars then the Ads on our website will display Adverts related to guitars or specifically Yamaha.

This page from Google explains how you can opt out and control the information Google receives.

Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

You can learn more about Google Analytics or opt out if you wish.


We may send you email notifications which you have specifically requested (such as newsletters). You have the ability to opt out of any of this communication at any time.

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.

Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.
