A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos etc)know if the blogger/presenter/site owner is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on all-things-photography.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on all-things-photography.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly and not from all-things-photography.com. Amazon and/or other companies pay all-things-photography.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or non-affiliate link. You won't pay more by clicking the link but the small commission earned helps us to maintain this site.
All Things Photography is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com and its partner websites. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their shopping cart through that link with 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click”. If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else however, I will get commission on that sale.
Product links work in the same way. We are also a members of similar programs for other companies in the photographic, video and gadget industry. Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase through an affiliate link or non-affiliate link. Again, you will not pay more by clicking through our links.
