Affiliate Relationships and Disclaimer

Sleep Builder tries to provide the most current and trusted information and product reviews across the world of sleep. Every editorial product is independently selected and reviewed. All opinions are solely those of the Sleep Builder staff. However, as a convenience to you and as part of our business model, we may link out to merchants and other websites.

Some of the sections of this Site allow you to purchase different products and services online provided by other merchants. Some of the links that we post on our site are “affiliate links.” This means that if you click on the link and purchase the item, we will receive an affiliate commission.

Please note that we are not responsible for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or any other aspect of these third-party products and services or their warranties. In addition, a merchant will probably have its own privacy and data collection practices that are different from ours.

If you make a purchase from a merchant on their site or on a site that we have posted a link to, the information gathered during your visit to that merchant’s online store or site and the information given as part of the transaction, such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, and credit card number, may be collected by the merchant and Sleep Builder. You should first visit that merchant’s website and click on its terms of service or contact the merchant directly prior to making any purchases.
