EDC Terms of Use, Disclosures and Privacy Policy

Everydaycyber.net™ (“EDC”, “we”, “our”) is owned by Bold Media.

EDC is based around our readers’ trust. Being transparent in what we do and how we earn money as a company is part of our philosophy.

We earn money on this site through:

Affiliate programs

EDC participates in various affiliate programs that represent products and/or services which we believe are both relevant to our audience but also offer specific benefits in supporting consumer and business security, both digital and physical. We have established affiliate relationships with direct product/service manufacturers as well as though affiliate networks. Such networks include (but not limited to) the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn commissions by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. All of the products for which we receive affiliate commissions are ones that we believe help our audience, and in many cases, have used or are using ourselves.

Advertising Agreements

Third party advertising is integrated into our site and is formalized though select advertising partnerships, we only agree to advertising partnerships if we believe in the product, the product company and that the products and services being promoted are ones we believe in.

Sponsored Content

Third party content may be presented on the EDC site from time to time. We will display disclaimers on all third-party content that has been sponsored. We may also include, in certain areas, a specific explanation defining the sponsored content to our audience. Additionally, the treatment and design of advertising and sponsored content will be clearly differentiated from our original editorial content.

Rejection or removal of sponsored content may occur at any time if it is determined that contains false, deceptive, potentially misleading, or illegal content; or is inconsistent with or may tend to bring disparagement, reputational harm to, or other damage to the EDC brand and any of its offline/online properties.
