Shopping with us
We may sell physical and digital goods on Affpinions as well as services. Here are the details for each aspect of shopping on Affpinions.

Placing orders
When you place an order, you should receive an e-mail that confirms receipt of your order. We then check the payment method and only accept your order once payment has been approved and we have debited the payment method (and then the contract is made based on these terms).

You may be able to cancel (not change) your order for physical goods within a short period of ordering. You can’t change your order, instead you’ll need to cancel (and/or return original item(s)), and re-order.

All orders placed with us are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price. If there’s an issue with an order we’ll get in touch as quickly as we can.

On some occasions we may need to refuse or cancel an order, even if we have previously confirmed your order, E.G. if we notice something unusual on an order or an account. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same payment method, and/or orders that use the same billing or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, or distributors.

Payment
We accept the following forms of payment: PayPal. You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made via the Site. You further agree to promptly update account and payment information, including email address, payment method, and payment card expiration date, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. Sales tax may be added to the price of purchases as deemed required by us.

You agree to pay all charges at the prices then in effect for your purchases and any applicable shipping fees, and you authorize us to charge your chosen payment provider for any such amounts upon placing your order.

If your order is subject to recurring charges, then you consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis without requiring your prior approval for each recurring charge, until such time as you cancel the applicable order. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing, even if we have already requested or received payment.

Returns/refunds
All digital sales are final and no refund will be issued.

For physical goods the following policies apply.

You must request a refund within 28 days of the item being delivered to you or available for collection. Once we have received the returned item we will process it and we’ll give you a full refund by way of the original payment method. We aim to refund you within 14 days of receiving the returned item.

To qualify for a refund, the item must still in it’s original condition. All returned items should be sent back to us in their 100% original condition together with the original packaging and any/all brand tags. All items are inspected on return to check they qualify for a refund. If the above criteria have not been met, we won’t be able to issue you a refund and we will send the item back to you. Alternatively, we (at our sole discretion) may instead reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the item(s).

You are responsible for paying all return postage costs. We strongly recommend you get proof of postage when returning the item.

We don’t accept returns after the relevant time period.

None of this affects your statutory rights.

Products
We make every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours, features, specifications, and details of the products available on the Site. However, we do not guarantee that the colours, features, specifications, and details of the products will be accurate, complete, reliable, current, or free of other errors, and your electronic display may not accurately reflect the actual colours and details of the products.

All products are subject to availability, and we cannot guarantee that items will be in stock. We reserve the right to discontinue any products at any time for any reason. Prices for all products are subject to change at any time.

Revenue disclosure
This revenue disclosure exists for transparency purposes. We are a business which needs revenue to prosper the same as any business does. Sponsorships, advertisements, commissions, product donations and event invitations contribute towards our revenue and content creation. We are an Amazon Associate meaning we may earn from qualifying purchases if you click through to Amazon from affpinions.com. By having these revenue streams it means we never have to rely on selling personal information.

The compensation received by the revenue streams outlined in the previous paragraph in no way affects what we post in the actual content, we are only compensated to provide an honest opinion. We may not directly identify on-page what content is paid/sponsored content and what isn’t.

Advertisers
We allow advertisers to display their advertisements and other information in certain areas of Affpinions, such as sidebar advertisements or banner advertisements. If you are an advertiser, you shall take full responsibility for any advertisements you place on the Site and any services provided on the Site or products sold through those advertisements.

Further, as an advertiser, you warrant and represent that you possess all rights and authority to place advertisements on the Site, including, but not limited to, intellectual property rights, publicity rights, and contractual rights.

We simply provide the space to place advertisements, and we have no other relationship with advertisers.

Social media
The activity on social platforms of accounts operated by Affpinions is governed by those individual platforms. The platforms we use include, but is not limited to; YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.

On YouTube we may post videos that contain other peoples content such as sounds, videos, and images which are believed to be used legally under appropriate licenses or fair use. We act responsibly and no misuse is ever intentional.

Anyone who objects to content being featured on YouTube or other social channels should get in touch. The aim is to upload good videos to the Affpinions channels. When content is embedded it is for review purposes to decide which is best and to compile top lists that further promote the company. Topics are linked to so they get benefits. We want our subscribers to discover useful content and become further educated on them. We always add our own unique additions to videos and extra content such as opinions and data. We want to be successful and sustainable so it isn’t in our interests to flout the law.

In the event you believe a YouTube video violates your rights you are also encouraged to go directly through the YouTube claim processes on the YouTube platform. The same goes for all third-party social platforms.
