Disclaimer

Hi! Before you start reading through some funny-sounding legal and technical lingo let us tell you how we fund this blog. We don't do any paid or compensated product or service reviews, if we review a hotel, restaurant, or anything for that matter, that means that we paid with our own money for that. And it can get expensive!

However, we need to live off something. And the way we fund this blog is by means of affiliate marketing. We add links to products and services like (but not limited to) hotels, rent a car, excursions, etc. And if you purchase anything using these links, we earn a little commission with no extra costs for you. Not all links on this website pointing to different products and services are affiliate links. In fact, many links aren't affiliated. But to be on a safe side, whenever you see any link leading from our site to products or services simply assume that they are affiliate links and that we will receive compensation if you purchase anything using them.

FrankAboutCroatia.com also participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

And now back to technical and legal staff.

These so-called analytics programs also tell us if how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

Advertising Cookies

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers, or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.

You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com. You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn't as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts, just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.

We fund our site by showing adverts as you browse our site. These adverts are usually managed by a partner specializing in providing adverts for multiple sites. Invariably these partners place cookies to collect anonymous data about the websites you visit so they can personalize the adverts to you, ensure that you don't see the same adverts too frequently, and ultimately report to advertisers on which adverts are working.

It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so-called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
