Disclosure

In the interests of transparency and full disclosure for our readers & community we provide a link to this voluntary disclosure statement. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The aim of Deeside.com is to provide a sustainable independent website for Deeside and the wider Flintshire area, due to that we will provide advertising space amongst other things as a revenue source. This will not affect our independent reporting, nor influence what can and cannot be published or reported on the site. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

One of the benefits of online media is that we do not have to bow to financial pressures of advertisers, as our running costs are very relatively low.

It also means we can mention when we have a relationship, as we are confident in what we do. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If you are reading this its likely you have clicked through after reading a story about one of our advertisers, which hopefully would stand up to being either news worthy, something quite cool locally and useful to local people in its own right. This does not mean we have received payment for it, however we want to be open about what we do so as a result we publish to this page. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

We do run features, competitions or promote special offers with local companies but when we do we work off the above critiera, as frankly we do not wish to publish junk and want to keep being relevant and useful for readers. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Some things to note: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

  • If we have reviewed somewhere or item, it is the authors viewpoint.
  • If you see a ‘google advert’ or ‘adchoices’ advert then they are ads selected and supplied by Google completely independently of Wrexham.com so we have no control over them, nor do we know what adverts you are being shown.
  • At the bottom of our articles, you will ‘Taboola Feed’ which is a native ad platform for marketers to get their content product in front of people in a natural way, all articles are supplied and selected by Taboola completely independently of Deeside.com so we have no control over them.

We do not run any ‘affiliate’ style links, so be confident when you click on a link its there for information only rather than us getting a referral fee.
