Like any operation to function successfully and effectively, there are costs involved in maintaining a website. This site, in order to survive, will accept, accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. It will be labeled as such on a post.
The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
Our advertising partners include: Google, iTunes/Apple Music & Amazon.
This means that we are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. That goes the same for Apple/iTunes Music and ads by Google.
The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. The contributor (s) and writer(s) of this blog however, may receive various forms of compensation to provide opinion on various topics. Even though they receive compensation for the posts, it does not affect the content and the writer/s will always strive to give their honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed are purely the bloggers’ own. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
