Affiliate and Cookie Policy

Affiliate Policy

Some links on sometimes with Réne which take you to external websites are affiliate links.  This means that I may receive a commission if you subsequently make a purchase from that site. The use of affiliate links helps fund the website (not a cheap undertaking by any means). It’s technically difficult for me to identify every individual affiliate link, so you should assume that any link on this site may be an affiliate link even though only a few are.

These affiliate links have no impact on my content and are independent. If I have affiliate links for a particular company in a post then I include them, if I don’t I usually include a direct link.

If I run a sponsored post it will be clearly marked as such.
