About affiliate marketing and advertising on Hypercrime:
Please know that Hypercrime is first and foremost about the sharing of ideas and the love of good books. Any effort made through advertising or affiliate marketing to monetize this site is only to offset the costs of hosting and producing the site. We try very hard to create a good site that attracts readers on the merit of our writing and content, and we are far more interested in our readers finding our content interesting and worth reading than we are in calculating ad impressions or affiliate clicks.
In an effort to be completely transparent, we have decided to place any affiliate links to books or other products at the bottom of posts and to identify them as affiliate links (with a link back to this page). We do not place affiliate links in the main text of any post or review.
Currently, we are linking to the following sites as affiliates:
If we add or remove any affiliate marketing relationships, we will disclose the fact with an update to this page.
We currently have two ad positions, both of which are clearly marked as advertisements.
We understand that some people do not like ads and affiliate marketing links, and we fully respect that. We do not seek to influence anyone or encourage supporting any particular vendor. Any purchase you make by clicking on an affiliate link does not cost you any more than if you bought the item directly, but the purchase does result in a small percentage of your purchase being paid to us for the referral.
If you make such purchases, we thank you. If you chose not to, we respect your reasons fully.
If at any time you wish to contact us about this policy or for any information on how we manage the advertising or affiliate marketing on this site, visit our Contact page to send us a note.
