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. Additionally, we have a small amount of affiliate relationships which we'll cover right below.
The only products where HighYa earns a commission through affiliate sales is the Bowflex Max Trainer, Casper Mattress, Casper Wave Mattress, Casper Pillow, and InvenTel's HD Mirror Cam. The affiliate links and offers are located solely on the actual product review page belonging to the product. Certain staff members have used products of Bowflex, Casper Mattress, and InvenTel over the years and have trusted these brands enough to put affiliate links on HighYa. In addition, based on the compilation of our online research of the product, we feel that relevant consumers would benefit from these products. 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 for Bowflex, a 5% commission per sale for Casper Mattress via Impact Radius, Inc., and 5% Commission Via InvenTel's Proprietary Affiliate Portal.
Of the thousands of products and services listed at HighYa, Currently, Bowflex Max Trainer, Casper Mattress (and its pillow), and Inventel's HD Mirror Cam are the only products where we may earn a commission through affiliate sales. Should we add new commission links in the future, we will update this page to remain transparent.
Affiliate links to the products references above have never been nor are currently promoted anywhere throughout the site and are strictly located at the associated product page URL. In other words, it's important to note that Bowflex MAX Trainer, Casper Mattress (and pillows), and InvenTel's HD Mirror Cam have never been nor are currently promoted, endorsed, nor recommended anywhere throughout HighYa over competitors or other similar products. Opinions of Bowflex Max Trainer, Casper, and InvenTel's HD Mirror Cam and their Affiliate links exist solely their own product review pages.

With that said, the companies disclosed here with whom we have affiliate relationships have the same exact access to free business account tools and level of support (nothing more and nothing less). Whether our affiliate or not, any company listed on our site may ask their customers to share their feedback on HighYa, and each of those reviews from such efforts will still be subject to the same vetting and manual assessment process as anyone else. All consumer reviews, regardless if left by consumers without or without the business' invitation go through the same vetting process. Just like any review coming for any company, they will only be published live if they comply with HighYa's review guidelines.
In addition to affiliate earnings located at for our exclusive observation and review of Bowflex Max Trainer, Casper Mattresses (and its pillow), and InvenTel's HD Mirror Cam which only make up a tiny portion of our revenue, you will notice Advertisements (banners and texts, outside of any affiliate relationship between HIghYa and the company) throughout the website which will either be based on your personal browsing history or will be contextual to a particular page, located on the pages outside the URLs disclosed above (which contain affiliate links). The advertisement algorithm is controlled and provided by Google AdSense Program. 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 with whom HighYa has a relationship with. They are solely Google AdSense adverts. To reiterate, HighYa has no control over what ads appear visible to the visitor, that's solely controlled by Google's undisclosed proprietary algorithms intended to display relevant ads for the user.
Should a website visitor voluntarily click on any of the ads, HighYa earns an amount equivalent to what Google calculates based on their undisclosed algorithms per click, outside of any affiliate relationship earnings. HighYa does not know in advance of the amount earned per click.
