We built Threat Picture to provide you with insightful, reliable, and up-to-date cybersecurity news. We believe there’s a need for dependable cybersecurity resources for internet users to be safe and informed in today’s digital age. We incorporate affiliate links in some of our content to support our work. We believe in complete transparency, so we’d like to explain these links to you.
2. What Are Affiliate Links
Affiliate links are special URLs used to track the traffic sent from our website to the advertiser’s website. Think of it as a digital handshake between us and the companies whose products we endorse. When you use these links for your purchases, it signals the company that we referred you to. In return, we may earn a small commission from the sale, but rest assured, this is at no additional cost to you. These small earnings help keep Threat Picture operational and allow us to continuously provide you with quality content.
3. Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance
When it comes to partnerships, we’re extremely selective. Our golden rule? Only recommend products and services we believe in and would use ourselves. With the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, we ensure our affiliate partners reflect reliable and effective solutions, fortifying your defense against cyber threats.
4. Transparent Earnings Disclaimer
Threat Picture has established affiliate relationships with entities such as Amazon and NordVPN. We contextually place affiliate links within content and host display advertisements.
Trust and transparency are the pillars of Threat Picture. While we earn a commission for any sales generated through our affiliate links, this does not influence the price you pay for the product.
We explicitly state that any income derived from these affiliations does not in any way skew the integrity, authenticity, or impartiality of its content.
5. Commitment to Honest Reviews
Your trust is sacred to us. Even if two products offer varying commissions, our reviews remain unbiased. Why? Because our compensation structure is nearly identical across products, this ensures our objectivity. Add to that our strict policy against biased sponsorships, and you have a team dedicated to serving you the truth and nothing but the truth.
6. Privacy Considerations
7. Invitation to Contact
At Threat Picture, we value open communication. Whether you have a query or a concern or want to chat about the latest cybersecurity trends, our doors (or, rather, our digital mailboxes) are always open. Reach out anytime through our contact page.
8. Clear Disclosure Location
Transparency is more than just a buzzword for us. To ensure you’re always aware of our affiliations, we’ve strategically placed this affiliate disclosure in the footer of each page – making it easily accessible regardless of where you are on our website.
9. Consistent Tone and Language
We’ve always prided ourselves on communicating in a clear and friendly manner. As you navigate this disclosure and our website, expect the same familiar voice – free of jargon and as trustworthy as a friend’s advice.
10. Adherence to Program and FTC Requirements
Upholding the law and ethical standards is non-negotiable for us. We adhere to the guidelines of individual affiliate programs and the broader standards set by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). We’re in this for the long haul, and our commitment to legal and ethical integrity is unwavering.
