Disclosures & Dislaimers
Affiliate & Marketing Disclosure
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. Participation in the Amazon Associates program means that whenever you purchase something from Amazon via a link on this website, a small percentage of the purchase is paid back to the website (though the book or other product does not cost you any extra!).
We do not participate in any affilate programs with financial companies – which means you don’t have to wonder if what we write is because we are getting paid for it by a bank, brokerage firm, robo-advisor, crowdfunding site, investment company or service, or credit card company. We don’t have an issue with the personal finance sites that do this (a lot of them have fantastic content!) – after all, we’re all trying to make a living. But it’s just not our style and we prefer to be as free as possible from any potential bias.
There is no paid advertising other than perhaps a Google Adsense (or similar ad service) box here and there that we may include from time to time.
unFinancedLife.com does not collect any personal information about you as a visitor except:

- We may use “cookies” of different types to recognize your computer. A cookie is a small text file that a website, online application, or e-mail may save to your internet browser and/or your computer’s hard drive for use in subsequent visits to the Sites or other sites

Protecting the privacy of children is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information at our site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
