In the coming days you might see appear on the website affiliate links. They will appear on the right sidebar (desktop) or bottom of the page (mobile). At most one affiliate link will appear per page and shall be identify with the mention "Affiliate" over the image/link.
To make it simple, it's a URL link that points to an online company/service which is willing to give money to the referer (in this case, us) if the user (in this case, you) makes a purchase.
At the right part of the URL, a unique code identifies the referer (in this case, us). At its core, an affiliate link works with cookies. As the user (in this case, you) navigates the affiliate's website, the cookie keeps a trace from the referral's origin. Some cookies will stay active more than 24 hours on the user's system. This means that if the user goes back on the affiliate's website, it will still give attribution to the referer.
Once the user buys a product, the referer is given a percentage/quote of the transaction.
