Advertising Privacy Statement
This Site is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”) for the purposes of placing advertising on the Site. AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and our other advertising partners will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

All income sources
We provide the following list of sources of income for The Golden:
- The Golden includes Google Adsense ads, AdThrive ads, and other ads on the site.
- The Golden is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
- We are also a part of the following affiliate programs: Commision Junction, ShareASale, Pepper Jam Network, Rakuten LinkShare, Skim Links and Huckberry. Brands are constantly dropping in and out of different affiliate programs, so a full list of the brands we have an affiliate relationship with would be next to impossible. A few of the brands we do have affiliate relationships with: Huckberry, Wine.com, Birchbox, Frank and Oak, Brookstones, Direct Wines… the list goes on and on. It’s honestly best to assume that every single link you see that points to a retailer has some sort of affiliate relationship with us.
- We work directly with brands to bring you sponsored content. If you’re wondering whether a post is sponsored, look directly under the title, at the very top of the page. It will say “This is a sponsored post (what is this?)”. For more on sponsored content, see here.
Does our relationship with these brands influence what goes up on our site? Absolutely not.
The Golden was founded to help make your house a home. This is our mission and we’re passionate about it so know that we won’t be pushing junk just to make a couple of bucks. Because if it’s junk… you, the visitor will stop visiting. And if you stop visiting, what’s the point?
