At HighYa, we firmly believe that internet-based companies owe it to their customers to be as transparent as possible. With this in mind, we hold ourselves to this same standard of transparency that we expect from everyone else.
When creating a large forum where consumers can freely voice their opinions and share their firsthand experiences, there are a number of associated costs that must be factored into the equation, just as there would be with any other venture. To help us cover some of the costs, we have included advertisement units provided by Google AdSense and Media.net along with affiliate links to a product located at our Team Treehouse page, a product we personally have used ourselves and would recommend to the relevant individuals. If a visitor clicks on a link located at Team Treehouse, he/she then gets redirected outside of our page to the main company website and should they decide purchase an educational product, we will earn a commission.
In addition, the only other product where HighYa earns a commision through affiliate sales is the Bowflex Max Trainer. Certain staff members have used products of Bowflex over the years and have trusted this brand enough to put affiliate links on HighYa. In addition, based on the compilation of our online research of the product, we feel that consumers would benefit from this product. As such, that is why we don't have a problem inserting affiliate links where we will earn 7% commission PER sale via the CJ Affiliate by Conversant affiliate platform.
Of the thousands of products and services listed at HighYa, Currently Team Treehouse and Bowflex Max Trainer are the only two products where we earn a commission through affiliate sales. Should we add new commission links in the future, we will update this page to remain transparent.
In addition to affiliate earnings located at for our exclusive observation and review of Team Treehouse and Bowflex Max Trainer, which only make up a tiny portion of our revenue, you will notice Advertisements (banners and texts) throughout the website which will either be based on your personal interest or will be contextual to a particular page. The advertisement algorithm is controlled and provided by Google AdSense Program and Media.net. As such, we do not have any control on what ads may or may not appear during your visit on highya.com. (To learn more about Google AdSense or to manage your ads settings, click here.)
With all that said, please note that any advertisement you see on any URL during your visit at HighYa.com, are not paid slots by third parties nor is it leased. They are solely Google AdSense or adverts from Media.net (A network of Yahoo/Bing based ads). To reiterate, HighYa has no control over what ads appear visible to the visitor, that's solely controlled by Google's and Media.net's undisclosed proprietary algorithms intended to display relevant ads for the user.
It should also be noted that we have not accepted any free products or services from any of the companies featured on this website in exchange for reviews, favorable or otherwise. If we have personally used and tested a product, it will be disclosed on the product/service page. However, it will be fair and honest based on the opinion and observation of the staff member that has tested the product/service.
At HighYa, we always maintain an open line of communication with our readers. If you have questions or comments regarding our affiliate relationships, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
