Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, Context takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

Advertising and Sponsored Content

MalwareTips uses advertising to cover the costs of operating the website and producing our content. Advertisers will never influence what and how we write about a particular topic or about products and services that we may cover in our content. MalwareTips may at times utilize a native advertisement called advertorials, which is an advertisements in the form of editorial content. All advertorial content will clearly be marked as sponsored content or deals and will always contain a disclaimer at the bottom so that readers can identify that there is a commercial incentive for the publishing of the content. Some of our content may contain marketing links, or affiliate links, that generate commissions from purchases made through those links. Our affiliate partnerships don’t influence our editorial content and will only be recommended if they provide a tangible benefit to the visitor.

Product Reviews

When writing reviews on this site, MalwareTips uses the following guidelines:
When reviewing products, the editors and team members will always provide honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on the products being reviewed.
MalwareTips never accepts compensation to write a review.
When writing reviews, we sometimes purchase the product ourselves or are given the product by the company. If we are given the product, it will be stated in the review.
After a review is finished, we will return the item if requested. Otherwise, the reviewed item will be given away as a promotion on
Advertisers on our site may also be a company who’s product we are reviewing. Their advertising, though, will have no bearing on how we review their product

Affiliate Disclosures

Every time we link products to retailers in reviews, in our Downloads section, or in the community, we may receive a commission for sales generated from those links through affiliate programs. This was a somewhat controversial topic but most recently a well understood and generally accepted form of compensation.

Our editorial team does not deal with retailers or affiliate programs in any manner. When advertising is sold to any retailer, that’s taken care of by a different group of people. Furthermore, affiliate links are mostly automated through scripts and there is little human intervention in tracking those programs.

When we promote a certain product (via a positive review or news announcement) it is generated organically as a service to readers who may want to learn more or buy such product. In the specific scenario where we are promoting a product or service as a sale and where we may directly generate a commission (“deals”), you will find a disclaimer alongside this promotion every time.

We will only suggest a product that can actually help you remove the computer infection for free, and we will only receive a commission if you decide to purchase it after. If it is required that you purchase a product before you can remove an infection, and we receive a commission for it, we will specifically state this in the guide.
