This disclosure is an attempt to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) policy demanding transparency regarding affiliate relations. Many of the links on the pages of The German Professor (TGP) lead to third-party websites. I am not responsible nor liable for the content and activities of those third-party sites, but I do carefully review them and link only to sites that offer useful information or a valuable service or useful products for German learners and educators. I have an affiliate relationship with some of those sites. You should be aware that participating in offers or buying products from affiliate sites may result in a commission being paid to me. For instance, I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and the Abebooks Inc. Affiliate Program, both affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, amazon.de, amazon.ca, amazon.co.uk, and abebooks.com. Other such affiliates include Ectaco, Flagline, allposters, advertisers affiliated with Commission Junction, Shareasale, and Linkshare.
I do not receive products or cash directly in exchange for any reviews or posts on this site. While nobody has paid me to write reviews or posts, it is conceivable that reviews and posts could be influenced by the affiliate relationships described above and this could cause a conflict of interest. I do not believe such a conflict of interest exists, but the visitor can judge for him- or herself. I strive to avoid such conflict of interest by reviewing or posting only about trusted products and services and am committed to offering honest opinions and experiences as a service to blog users and readers. Content is not written or presented for the sole purpose of receiving affiliate income.
Other vendors may also pay to place advertising on the site in the form of banners, widgets, and hyperlinks. These are paid advertisements, and while I strive to allow only quality products and services to be advertised on the site, I am not responsible for claims made on paid advertising links.
