Affiliate Program Participation
The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
We are also an affiliate of other programs such as HotelsCombined, KAYAK, Coursera, Mondly, BookYogaRetreats, etc. which provide advertising fees when someone clicks on a link on our site to make a purchase on their site.
Like with Amazon, the Website will post customized links, provided by these third parties, to track the referrals to their website. Their programs utilize cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
We may also participate in other affiliate programs and you should assume that all links found on the Website are affiliate links.
On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns.
Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
