Here at Castleroid, we aim to provide our readers with entertaining guides and tutorials about our favorite hobbies. The information we provide on this site is free to all of our readers and subscribers. Producing that content, however, is time-consuming and requires many hours of research and writing.
In order to off-set the costs of maintaining this website and creating that content, Castleroid occasionally accepts advertising and / or engages in affiliate programs. These revenue sources allow our team to continue to produce and grow Castleroid. We only promote products that we personally use and can honestly recommend to our readers, because building trust through transparency with our readers is important to us.
Amazon Services LLC Associates Program
Castleroid is 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.
Our advertising partners currently include:
- Google Adsense
What we do and don’t promote
Any product (ex. video games) or tool (software) that we recommend on this site has been used personally by that staff member. When we vouch for a product, it’s because we’ve been impressed by it and think that others will benefit from it.
The majority of the time we purchase the reviewed product or tool in question ourselves, but sometimes products are provided to us for free of charge. When we receive a product for free, it is noted prominently in that review (ex. The Walking Dead: All Out War). Our opinions are always honest and are not impacted by receiving the product for free.
What is an affiliate or referral link?
The FTC requires that we disclose to you that these links represent a relationship we have with a particular product, and in return for you visiting that linked website we will receive a small commission. This does not cost our readers anything, and is again intended to off-set the costs of creating content and maintaining the site.
Any commissions or compensations received by the owner of Castleroid are through affiliates, referrals, or advertising. The opinions expressed regarding any product, service, or topic are based on honest opinions, research, and experience. Any claims, quotes, statistics, or representations related to these products, topics, or services should be independently verified with the service provider, producer, or manufacturer.
