Copyright and Rights Reserved
All of the information on this website, including images, text, audio, video, and other forms of content (including the information in this affiliate disclosure) is Copyright © The alkman company to present date and may not be downloaded, reproduced, republished or otherwise copied without express written permission of the author and of the websites www.alkman.co and www.alkman.org (the alkman company brand)
The Website and all of its Content and the selection and arrangement thereof, is protected as a compilation owned by The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) and The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) under the copyright laws of the United States and other countries. The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) may change the Website or delete any content, features, or services at any time, in any way, for any or no reason. The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Website and the Content.
This affiliate disclosure details affiliate relationships that the alkman company brand (www.alkman.co and/or www.alkman.org) has with other companies and products.
We must first have first-hand experience with a product before we promote it – therefore we dont promote products that we have not used ourselves so that we can be as honest as possible about what it does based on experience (not just observation). We also like to have a certain amount of knowledge on the product as well, and that comes best with experience, too.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines we have to mention the following about all links, posts, photos and other material on this website:
Some of the links on this blog or website could be affiliate links of which The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) receives a small commission from sales of certain items.
The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) is a participant in many affiliate sites. Pages on this site may include affiliate links to to these sites on which the owner of this website could make a referral commission.
What is an Affiliate Link?
Some of the links on The alkman company brand websites (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) are affiliate links. This means that a special tracking code is used and that I may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is usually always the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps me to maintain this website and support my family and my mission to help people with addiction and other things.
In some cases, I may also use a link and provide a discount code for an item. In these cases, I may still earn an affiliate commission and the price may actually be LESS for you by using this link or tracking code. However, I’m different than some people who do this. I will NOT support an affiliate that I morally or ethically do not believe in. I only have links on my sites that I truly believe that you could benefit from. I listen to my customers and followers. If I hear that people are unhappy, that link will be removed, regardless of what it’s making me in commissions.
But, for simplicity, assume that any link on The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) could be an affiliate link and that I may/will make a commission if you purchase through these links. Everyone has to pay the bills, right?!
If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support the The alkman company brand (alkman.org and/or alkman.co) mission (which I would be very grateful for!), you can also donate. I will be giving half of all proceeds to rehab centers that I believe in, and will post the checks i send on my site.
When Do I Use Affiliate Links?
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use or really believe in and support and would recommend without an affiliate link. I use an affiliate link by seeking things that I already like or use in my day to day life, and if I find an affiliate link for that, I will review it or use it myself to see if my followers could benefit from it in order to post it. And it goes without saying, any profit I get is reinvestment into my business so I can have time to provide more services and pay my ‘helpers’ to produce at a rate to satisfy my followers.
I do not accept free products for review and also disclose if I am affiliated with a company in any other way that benefits me financially.
I know that many bloggers accept free products for review or write sponsored posts and while I personally don’t find anything wrong with this (as long as the nature of the relationship is disclosed properly), it is my personal policy to purchase products and use them myself before promoting to or linking to them. In many cases, I am offered free products for review and refuse them.
My first priority is always providing resources to help you create positive changes in your life, and I will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.
