Advertising Disclosure
for the-home-cinema-guide.com

Updated: November 25, 2020

The-home-cinema-guide.com accepts a variety of advertising for home cinema equipment and other related items. As the owner of this website, I am compensated for this advertising which supports the running of the site.

You can be confident that the content of this website is not influenced by any advertising or affiliate relationship that I may have. 

In fact, I actively seek relevant advertising and product links in order to support this website and provide useful information to site visitors.

Advertising on this site is formed of two main types – affiliate links and display ads.

What Is an Affiliate Link?

Throughout the site, I link to products I like. After clicking one of these links, if you buy a product from the external site, I may get a commission.

You pay the same.

You are under no obligation to make a purchase when you leave this website.

Have You Used the Products You Link To?

In many cases, I have used the product, or something very similar from that brand. I have been using home cinema and hi-fi equipment for personal use for 30+ years.

I, therefore, have wide experience with many products and brands in this field.

I also use my 20+ years of experience as a sound engineer and technician in recording studios, TV studios and theater to evaluate and research products either with hands-on experience or by online research.

I make a number of product and service recommendations throughout this website. However, I recommend only those products and services that I believe to be suitable for the purpose, and that I would use myself. 

Specific product reviews and endorsements included in my text are my personal opinion or my own experiences with that product.

I have not accepted any payment or compensation to link to any product on this website.

Who Are Your Affiliate Relationships With?

I have affiliate relationships with a number of retailers and service providers. These include:

  • Amazon.com
  • Amazon.co.uk/.ca/.de/.es/.fr/.it/.au/.se
  • Commission Junction
  • Skimlinks
  • Genius Link
  • JustAnswer.com

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I link to several retail companies via Commission Junction, Skimlinks and Genius Link. Each of these platforms operate the affiliate programs of many companies throughout the world.

JustAnswer.com provides an online support network where users can get real-time answers to their problems in several different fields. I get a commission on a fee paid by users referred from this website. A fee is paid when a user gets a satisfactory answer to their problem.

You are under no obligation to buy a product or pay for a service when you leave this website.

You can find links to these companies privacy policies on our privacy policy page.

What Are Display Ads?

Display ads appear at the side of, or within, the content of this website. These advertisements are clearly identified.

I use Mediavine to manage all the display ads on this website.

While I try to make sure that only relevant, suitable and good quality ads are shown for site visitors, I cannot monitor every company that wishes to display ads on this site.

The fact that a particular product or service is advertised in this way is not an indication that I recommend or endorse that product or service. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation should be verified with the seller, manufacturer or provider.

If you see an advert that you feel is unsuitable for a family website, then please feel free to use the 'Report This Ad' button that appears below every ad.

Or, if you would prefer, you can contact me with the details.

How Do You Earn from Display Ads?

Ads earn money for this site by the number of times an ad is displayed – or if a site visitor clicks on the ad.

You are under no obligation to interact with the ads on this site. 

I try to make sure that the ads don't interfere with your enjoyment of this site. Ads will never obscure the page content. And, hopefully, you may even find the ads useful and relevant to you.
