Acknowledgement of Support
Please assume the following about all links, posts, photos and other material on this website:
Any/all of the links on this website may be affiliate links from which Anita Richards may receive a small commission from the sales of certain items, the price for which remains the same for you.
Anita Richards / AnitaRichards.com.au is a participant in the following affiliate programs as at 14 January 2020:
- Adobe® Affiliates Program via TradeDoubler
- Amazon® Associates Program direct with Amazon
- Corel® Affiliates Program via CJ Affiliates
- Creative Market Partners Program direct with Creative Market
What is an Affiliate Link?
Many (but not all) of the links on AnitaRichards.com.au are affiliate links. This means that a special tracking code is used and that AnitaRichards.com.au 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 the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps to maintain this website and to support my family.
In some cases, AnitaRichards.com.au 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.
For instance, if you click on a link on this website for a book about digital scrapbooking, or any other item that I link to from Amazon, I may receive a small commission.
Links to other companies like Adobe or to Amazon Products may also be affiliate company links.
Again, for simplicity, please assume that any link on AnitaRichards.com.au is an affiliate link and that I will make a commission if you purchase through these links (though the price remains the same for you).
If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support the AnitaRichards.com.au mission (for which I would be most grateful!), links to many of the products I recommend can be found on the Classifieds Page.
When does AnitaRichards.com.au use Affiliate Links?
If AnitaRichards.com.au posts an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I do or would personally use, that I support and would recommend even without an affiliate link.
Unless noted otherwise, please assume that any any product that AnitaRichards.com.au links to is one that I have either purchased myself and/or use myself or for my family.
AnitaRichards.com.au does not accept free products for review.
AnitaRichards.com.au will disclose if I am affiliated with a company in any other way that benefits me financially. It is my personal policy, where practicable, to purchase products and use them myself before promoting to or linking to them.
The first priority of this website is always providing resources to help you create positive improvements to your digital scrapbooking experience and indeed in your life more generally as in the case of the other online businesses that I run. As such, I will only ever link to products or resources, affiliate or otherwise, that fit within this overarching purpose.
The Nature of Affiliate Relationships
Please note that while I personally purchase, review and/or use every product I link to on this site, these products are for sale from third party companies and I have zero control over them nor have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
For this reason, I cannot ensure that any item purchased through a link on AnitaRichards.com.au is shipped on time, packaged properly, or that you will like it.
Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from in the first instance.
