Reviews and affiliate policy

HowToTech UK offers unbiased reviews and buying advice, helping you find what you need and where your money is best spent. However, as with everything online, it can be tricky to work out whether you're reading paid-for stories.

We currently have no plans for sponsored or advertorial content. If we publish a review, it is based on our experience with the product, not the company's marketing department.

Similarly, we produce buying guides (roundups or collections of products) to help you narrow your selection. These are independently chosen and selected for the guide, and we do not accept payment for a place on these lists.

From time to time, we will review items which we have purchased or already own. In other cases, we may accept products from PR firms, manufacturers, and retailers to review.

However, we will only review products so long as we can be objective and allow the author to express their opinion freely and openly. Products are only accepted on this understanding.

If you have a product, app, or service you'd like us to consider for review, please contact our Managing Editor, James Frew, at or reach out to him on Threads at @jimjam.froo.

We provide links to retailers for your convenience. At present, we are not part of any affiliate or referral schemes, so we do not make money from your purchase and have no financial incentive to offer one retailer over another.

To make HowToTech UK sustainable in the long run, we may join an affiliate scheme in the future, but we will make that clear across the site should that be the case.
