1. Affiliate Disclosure

DatingScout.com uses some forms of monetization like affiliate programs, which means that when someone clicks on links to the various sites of which we offer test reviews, and register for those services, this can result in a commission that is credited to this site (at no additional cost or consequences for the person who clicks the link).

We only recommend websites that we have researched and tested thoroughly. Affiliate marketing is part of our business model, our credibility towards our readers is very important to us, and this is reflected in the quality of websites that we recommend and information that we provide. 

2. Third-Party & Sponsor Ads

Ads (Text and Image) that appear on this site outside of the main body articles (like on a side column) can be third party sponsor ads. We may or may not personally endorse those products and services advertised in these ads. Those companies are often just paying us for ad space. We're trying to make sure to only allow relevant ads that fit our content
