How We Use Affiliate Programs
We are no fans of ads and want to have none of them. You may have noticed this when you came to Sewinguru and were not bombarded with ads. Did you notice how quickly our pages load? One big reason is that we don’t use ads and are passively supported by our readers instead!
Passive reader support simply means that we rely on commissions from products that our readers purchase on websites that we link to. This never costs you anything extra. Our commission comes out of the pocket of the online stores we link to. We earn on any product that gets sold after you click on one of our affiliate links. This way you can rest assured that our recommendations are independent and are not altered by any profit goals.
A website like Sewinguru is expensive to maintain, and product tests are time consuming and come with expenditure as well. It is our job! Affiliate programs are the perfect way to keep the lights on and provide helpful content while entirely avoiding intrusive ads.
We’re currently partnering with the following affiliate programs.
- Amazon Affiliates – Sewinguru is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. This means we may promote and supply links to products on Amazon and earn a commission for any resulting sales made. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. This comes at no extra cost to you.
We do not store any personal data by default, however we may temporarily store details entered into contact form or newsletter subscription (just so we can get back to you!). This information is usually a Name, an Email Address and a message if entered into a contact form, or just an email if you provided it to be signed up to our newsletter.
We are more than happy to unsubscribe, delete permanently or update any email addressed held by our newsletter subscribers at any point.
