Site-wide SSL Encryption Used
From the beginning we set up AffGeek using site-wide SSL which means everything is encrypted. This step was not necessary since we’re not selling products on AffGeek; however, it was done because we value security and privacy at all levels (even for our contact form) and because widespread use of encryption can help those in danger from tyrannical governments.
Limited Data Collection
Other than what you share with us through our contact form and what is anonymously collected through our visitor analytics and site usage software (we use Clicky [affiliate link] and avoid Google Analytics), we don’t know who uses AffGeek. AffGeek does very little data collection and analysis other than for the purpose of monitoring site usage and visitor traffic patterns.
Skimlinks is Installed
This step may earn a few dollars a year from outgoing visits; however, more importantly, it serves as a great example for us to use in showing affiliate publishers how Skimlinks works. It also allows us to support one of the larger affiliate service entities within the performance marketing industry.
