TL;DR – We may receive compensation for links you click on our website, but any financial arrangements should have no material impact on how products/services are ranked or scored.
The Software Authority maintains a strict independence between the editorial process in which products/services are evaluated, ranked, and scored by review staff, and the development of financial relationships by sales staff who have no involvement in the reviewing process or any influence over the resulting scores, reviews, and rankings. That same independence applies to products The Software Authority evaluates that its e-commerce stores subsequently choose to sell directly to visitors on The Software Authority’s own websites.
The Software Authority and its owned and operated websites may have financial relationships with some of the merchants/vendors reviewed on the company’s websites. Those relationships may include compensation to The Software Authority or one of its websites when visitors click on links, located both within sponsored content and editorial content, to websites operated by the merchant/vendor and make a purchase on the merchant/vendor’s website. In addition, The Software Authority may receive compensation when it shares with vendors information visitors have provided to us about their needs for a product or service, in order to allow the vendor the option to offer the visitor a quote for the product/service in question.
