We participate in affiliate programs listed on the websites.  Any product, which we are an affiliate of, will have this symbol   near it or stated as such. 

If you are unfamiliar with affiliate programs, it is when a company provides an individual with a small monetary compensation in exchange for advertising space.  Compensation is a result of when another person, such as you, clicks on the retailer’s link and places an order with that particular company.  The compensation depends on the total purchase amount placed by the consumer.  The compensation may be a result from a one-time purchase or several purchases made within a set number of days.

The compensation we receive from affiliate programs is minimal and helps offset website-hosting and other company costs.
