Our Site Does Include Affiliate Links (including Amazon.com)
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about all links, posts, photos and other material on this website:
Any/all of the links on this website are affiliate links of which Safeguard Self Defense, LLC receives a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you.
Safeguard Self Defense is also participant 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. Pages on this site may include affiliate links to Amazon and its affiliate sites on which the owner of this website will make a referral commission.
However, this is not the ONLY affiliate program we participate in. We also utilize affiliate links from other third party affiliate programs with smaller retailers.
What is an Affiliate Link?
Many (but not all) of the external links on WiseOwlSafety.com are affiliate links. This simply means tracking code is used and that we may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps us continue to provide free safety advice.
Nature of Affiliate Relationships
Please note that while we do our best to only recommend products that we would purchase ourselves and that service a specific safety need, these are products from third party vendors. We do not control these companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
We cannot ensure that any item purchased through a link on WiseOwlSafety.com is shipped on time, packaged properly, or that you will like it. Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.
