PLUGINS

TLG list of plugins and information regarding their policies.

 


*TLG site currently doesn’t use any advertising software*

LINK POLICY: Sometimes users may find affiliate links on TLG site, giving TLG the chance to earn a commission, which isn’t 100% guaranteed. Even though a purchase has been completed that doesn’t mean TLG is getting a share of it; there are different factors to take into account. In any case, the product price is the same; buying through TLG affiliated links doesn’t make it more expensive but instead, might help to partially cover server and domain costs and, in addition to that, also prevents TLG from relying on advertising software. These affiliate links are usually the best offers from the most reliable sellers; that’s our compromise.
