Gear Affiliate Disclosure Statement
TractionLife.com features, highlights, and reviews products we feel are a good fit for our audience. And we only work with brands we personally value, whether we’ve owned their stuff in the past or would be happy owning today.
Sometime, TractionLife.com links to featured products via affiliate partners, Amazon and other online retailers. When you click on these links and purchase products, the URL automatically includes an identifier that tells the affiliate partner or retailer you discovered the link on TractionLife.com. We then earn a small percentage of the purchase price as a referral fee. Our team is not beholden to or indebted by these retailers.
Again, our first priority is brand and product quality; then, if there’s an opportunity to promote their product, we’ll add a link to buy or learn more. Any earnings from affiliate links contribute to our editorial practice and fund our ability to appropriately pay our team and produce more engaging content.
Car Review Disclosure
Our vehicle review contributors are all established, accredited journalists. We are members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), thus, we adhere to their code of ethics to include not accepting compensation, monetary or otherwise, from automobile manufacturers and other companies, directly or indirectly, in return for favourable reviews.
Our opinions are unbiased, unsolicited, and never sponsored (and in the case we do conduct sponsored content, we’ll be totally transparent about it with our readers). All our test vehicles are offered directly from the auto manufacturers, as part of their press fleet available to accredited media members for evaluation, generally, for a one-week period. Or evaluations made during press events (i.e. new car launch).
