Some of it is a bit complicated, but what it boils down to is that we aim to be fair and honest in our dealings with you, and we expect you to be fair and honest in your dealings with us.

In the case of conflict between the terms and conditions displayed on this page and any found elsewhere on the website, those displayed here will take precedence.

Advertisements and Recommendations

We use Google AdSense and the eBay Partner Network to show you advertisements for goods and services that may be of interest to you. These advertisements are clearly identified. We do not have complete control over what products and services are advertised, and the fact that a particular product or service is advertised in this way is not an indication that we recommend or endorse that product or service. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation should be verified with the seller, manufacturer or provider. We may receive a payment if you respond to any of these advertisements.

We make a number of product and service recommendations throughout this website. We may, but in general do not, receive a payment for making these recommendations. In either case we recommend only those products and services that we believe to be suitable for the purpose, and that we would use ourselves. The views and opinions expressed on this site are those of the authors and other contributors only. Any claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the seller, manufacturer or provider.

We are happy to recommend SBI! (previously known as Site Build It!) from SiteSell to any of our visitors who would like to have their own successful website. We use this product ourselves, and believe that it represents excellent value for money. We receive no payment for recommending SBI!, but should you decide to purchase this product for yourself we may receive a commission. You are free to order from a number of sources, including SiteSell, but we would appreciate it if you would consider doing so through us.
