Almost everything we write about is based solely on our opinions. Especially with travel, everyone may have a different opinion. Just because we may love something doesn’t mean you will or will not.
We belong to multiple affiliate programs and we try to implement affiliate links every chance we get. This is one of the main sources of income for this website and this is how we can keep this website free and non-subscription based. All affiliates and affiliate programs we belong too are company’s and brands we feel strongly about. We trust our affiliate programs to provide our viewers with an optimal shopping experience. If we ever find out an affiliate of ours is treating their customers poorly or providing any customers with information we do not agree with, we will stop any association with them.
If you clicked-through an affiliate link from our website, and then purchased a product from that company and had an issue, please contact us and let us know immediately. We will take all information into consideration.
Here is a brief summary of our affiliates and affiliate programs we belong too. This list can change at any moment and we reserve the right to change it. Some affiliate programs may be more prominent than others. Some affiliate programs like Shareasale & Commission Junction have multiple brands & company’s that take part in their affiliate program.

What is an Affiliate Program or Affiliate Link?
There are multiple affiliate programs and also brands who do their own affiliate links so each company may do things a bit differently. However, they are all based on the same idea. That idea is to provide us with a link to their website or to their specific product and then provide us a commission if a transaction takes place. Since each program differs the commission percentage can vary but typically is anywhere from 1% to 10% of the total cost of the product. Sometimes we get no commission and sometimes we get a higher commission. It all depends on the type of product and what the affiliate program is willing to offer.
Most outbound links are affiliate links. If you have a question about any affiliate links, feel free to contact us.
Buying Products Through Our Affiliate Links
Unless otherwise stated, we do NOT sell any products directly. Any product you purchase is going to be from a different company that we directed you too. If you have any issue or question about something you purchased or are about to purchase, you need to take it up with the company we referred you too, not us. If the product isn’t what you expected, we can NOT help you. You must contact the company you purchased this product from and they will have to handle it. We do NOT grant any refunds because we do not sell any products(unless otherwise stated). We suggest you look at the information on the company’s website and do your own research before making a purchase.
If a company is being fraudulent, lying, not granting refunds based on their policies or anything else we deem as inaccurate; they will be blacklisted from our website. We do our best to direct our viewers to only legitimate retailers and brands. Anything else is unacceptable.
Affiliate Links Price Discrepancy
On www.usacanoekayak.org, you may see a price for a certain product or a possible sale price. The price you see on www.usacanoekayak.org does NOT guarantee the price you will pay on the website we refer you too. At no point in time can the price mentioned on our website be matched with the company we refer you too or any other company for that matter. Company’s change prices daily and it’s very difficult to be 100% accurate on every single product page, blog post or sale we might mention. If something is on sale, you can almost guarantee the price will increase after the sale is over.
At www.usacanoekayak.org, we do our VERY BEST to keep pricing as accurate as possible and we even check the prices every few months and update them accordingly. If you notice a price is off, please contact us and put “Price Discrepancy” in the subject line. This will not only help us but it will help future viewers of ours and for that, we thank you.
Any compensation received, whether it’s free products, affiliate commissions, advertisement money or whatever, will NEVER influence a review or product description. The reviews on www.usacanoekayak.org are purely opinion based and all content is written by the owners of this website unless otherwise stated. We do NOT accept any payment or compensation offers to change our opinion.

Also if you are an owner of an image and don’t mind us using it, but would like to be credited please contact us and we would be happy to do so.

Any image that has a USA Canoe Kayak watermark, or that we state was taken by us, is our property. Please review our Copyright policy for further information regarding images.
In some sections of the website, we gather images, mostly from Pinterest, and we do our very best to cite the picture properly from the original source.

Product Reviews Disclosure
We have a dedicated section for Product Reviews where we obviously review various products. Most of these products are sent to us to review unless otherwise stated. However, some products are purchased by us and then reviewed. Whichever way we obtain the product does NOT effect our opinion or review. All reviews are opinion based and shouldn’t be taken as fact. We base all product reviews on how we liked the product and if the product met our expectations based on what the packaging or website told us. We do NOT review every single product and we may reject company’s from sending us products. If we find a company we like, we may inquire them to send us some products to review. This does NOT effect our opinion of the product once it is in our possession. We are very reasonable and most reviews we find the positive within the product. We do not like to bash company’s or products but if the product in our opinion is unacceptable or bad, we will write about it.
