Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are unique URLs containing an affiliate's identification or referral code. When someone clicks on an affiliate link and makes a purchase, the affiliate earns a commission on that sale, at no additional cost to the buyer. This commission-based marketing strategy is widely used by online retailers, service providers, and content creators to incentivize affiliates for promoting their products or services. In the case of our Chrome Extension, the Service replaces the URLs of Google search results with affiliate links. This means that when users click on a search result and make a purchase through the affiliate link, we (the developers of the Chrome Extension) receive a small commission from the retailer or service provider. This commission helps support the development, maintenance, and operation of the Service without any extra cost to users. It is important to note that the use of affiliate links does not affect the quality or relevance of search results. The affiliate links are seamlessly integrated into the search results, ensuring a smooth browsing experience for users.

Auto Refresh Plus may share the collected data with third-party entities for various purposes, including but not limited to advertising, analytics, and research. Please note that sharing your data with third parties may involve the sale of your information. We value your privacy and are committed to transparency in our data sharing practices.

We wish to clarify that we do not want to know your identity preferences or any information about you personally. We are here to provide you with the best experience and service with no fees. In order to enable us keep our business and operations running we need your consent to share the Insights.

Data Protection and Security

However, it's essential to be aware that once your data is shared with third parties, it may be subject to their own privacy policies and practices. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies of any third parties involved.
