Disclosure Statement

Information icon

Throughout this website you will see ads and product suggestions. In some cases, we are affilliated with these programs and may be compensated for bookings of these services. In addition, please realise that we will not recommend a product or service which we consider unworthy. We have high standards and guidelines for the various products and services that we suggest.

If you see a testimonial on our website, it is real. We will never issue a false testimonial or pay someone to ‘say something good’ about a product or service. Please keep in mind that whatever the person says is their opinion.

All web-form submissions become property of this website and are protected by copyright laws. We provide all content on this website free of charge, to share with people who love Crete. We devote the time required to do this as an online business being able to earn an income.

In order for us to bring you free, high quality, useful information, we use various methods to earn an income from this website. These methods include the use of Google Adsense,  various affiliate programs and sales of our own e-books published on Kindle and also sold via this website as portable documents.

An affiliate program is a type of online pay-per-sale arrangement. Typically, the way it works is that a company will pay out a commission for every sale sent to them by any website owner who has been approved to participate in their affiliate program. In theory, the way an affiliate program works is that we have a website or a blog and we love a particular product, so we suggest it to our visitors. If someone makes a purchase as a result, We Love Crete. com receives a small commission at no extra cost to the customer. As mentioned before, we will only suggest a product or service if we deem it a good one. In other words, we will never recommend a product solely because we have the ability to earn a commission from the affiliate program.
