Ads policy

Introduction to our ads policy

Behind the Scenes is a free, entertainment/informative website written in a blog fashion. It is updated regularly and hosted on a paid-for server. In order to earn some income for our efforts to write useful and/or entertaining posts, we use Google Ads and affiliate links.

Because we know that ads on a free website can be annoying, they are placed in areas that will create the least amount of discomfort for our valued readers and will, in a way, not interfere with the content of the site.

Behind the Scenes, or its authors, will be in no way responsible for any consequences the reader might suffer after clicking on ads or affiliate links.

Google Ads

We use Google AdSense to display ‘paid for’ advertising (ads). The content of these ads is randomly generated according to the content of the website. If your web browser’s cookies are enabled, ads might also be selected according to previous websites that the reader has visited.

Google Ads has strict policies on the type of ads they allow, so you won’t have to worry about the safety of the links and the referring websites. Behind the Scenes will not advertise counterfeit goods, dangerous products or services, products or services that enable dishonest behaviour or offensive or inappropriate content. Ads will also not be displayed as annoying pop-ups.

Taking the above into consideration, please at least consider clicking on the ads when the contents might be of use to you. Also, if you are using an Ad Blocking Browser Extension, please disable it for this site.

Affiliate links

In addition to ads, we also allocate screen space to view affiliate links. These links are also placed and marked as Ads on our website. Following these links will come at no additional cost to you, but we get a little commission each time they are used.

Changes to the ads policy

This ads policy is effective as of 28 April 2023 and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. We reserve the right to update or change our ads policy at any time and you should thus check this page periodically.

Your continued use of our website after we post any modifications to the ads policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgement of the modifications and your consent to abide by and be bound by the modified ads policy.
