Advertising

As an online publishing platform, a part of our revenue is generated from CUBICLE through affiliate links, partnerships and advertorials on the site. Advertising methods evolve over time so we urge you to regularly review this privacy policy if you are interested in our methods of advertising. See below the different forms of advertising we currently conduct: 

Sponsored content – Occasionally we produce content that has been compensated in form of a fee, gift or service-in-kind by a commercial patron. When this appears as an article we distinctly state the nature of partnership at the bottom of the page. This is to let you know that there is a monetary or commercial benefit from publishing the article. We also frequently feature these articles on our social media feeds or in our newsletters, our users will be able to see the advertisement label at the top of the post in the form of ‘Paid Partnership with…’, or labelled at the bottom of the email. 

Competitions—From time to time, we will host competitions that is sponsored by an advertiser. A competition that has a commercial motive will usually involve requests for contestants to following the advertiser on social media or subscribing to their newsletter. We will always ask for permission before sending an advertiser your email address. Not following to social media accounts or signing up for newsletters for an advertiser or for CUBICLE accounts and newsletters will not affect your chances in any competition.

Affiliate links—these are links on CUBICLE, especially in shopping pages, to another website that track a link’s click-through performance and subsequently tracks any purchases something on that website. We receive a small commission on that purchase, or a purchase that happens within the expiration of cookies on the particular e-commerce. We currently utilise RewardStyle as our primary affiliate link generator.
