Third-Party Links

Some of the products I use have been given to me by companies I design for, or they have been sold to me at a discounted rate. This does not affect my content since I only use and blog about products that I like. I will never use or recommend a product that I don't personally like myself.
Some of my blog posts may contain links to other websites, especially to companies I cooperated with at the time when the blog post was written. The purpose of these links is to provide my blog readers more information on the products. None of the links are affiliate links i.e. I do not get a monetary compensation for the clicks.
