Affiliate Disclosure

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume….. ahhh scrap that.

Let’s drop the legal lingo, and say it plain and simple. is a brand name of Upscope, a digital agency from the Netherlands. We are a registered business since 2008, and in order to stay in business we need to make money. We do this by serving clients around the world, Buy and sell domain names and websites, employing Valuable Assistants to help them achieve their goals, and also providing information, guides and tutorials to you, our valued visitor.

My name is Marcel Behrens, and I’m doing the best I can to create solutions that empower people.

If you ever wrote an in-depth blog post, you know it takes time to get the content to a level of awesomeness you want to share with the world. Time spent writing, fact-checking, interviewing, re-writing, proofreading, finding the perfect photo and/or video, editing said photo, additional graphic design, and setting up the page on your blog… each post takes a considerable amount of time before it is visible online

To be able to invest time in delivering awesome content, it would be great if we somehow can get a compensation for our work. This is where affiliate marketing comes in.

Most of the links on this website are affiliate links. We receive a  small commission if you buy something on the referred website after clicking our link.

The price of the item is the same for you whether you buy through our  affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps me to maintain this website, support my family and pay the people that work with us as Valuable Assistants.

In some cases, I may also use an affiliate link and provide a discount code for a product or service. In these cases, I may still earn an affiliate commission and the price may actually be LESS for you by using the affiliate link.

It means a win-win situation for all of us: You get solid information and a great product or service, we get a few dollars (or Euros) for referring you to that business, and the business will gain a valuable new customer…you!

Again, for simplicity, assume that any link on this website is an affiliate link and that I may/will make a commission if you purchase through these links (though the price remains the same for you).

When Do I Use Affiliate Links?

If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, my employees use, a client uses (or has used)  and would also recommend without an affiliate link.

I will never allow anyone working for Upscope to accept a payment for writing a positive review, or favor any business over another.  I do not accept free products for review and also disclose if I am affiliated with a company in any other way that benefits me financially.

I know that many bloggers accept free products or services for review or write sponsored posts and while I personally don’t find anything wrong with this, it’s not the way I choose to operate.

My first priority is always providing resources to help you create positive changes in your life – as stated in our mission statement -, and I will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.

Affiliate Relationships

Please note that I do not control the referred companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed. For this reason, I cannot ensure that any product or service purchased through an affiliate link on our site is shipped on time, packaged properly, works as advertised, will be available until you die, or that you will like it in any way.

Any problems or concerns with a specific product or service purchased through an affiliate link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.
