Ethics Statement

Ethics Statement

At Ric Raftis Consulting, we take ethics seriously and strive to be transparent in all aspects of our work. In this spirit, we would like to provide an ethics statement regarding the affiliate links and content we publish.

It is important to note that some articles and videos on our website may contain affiliate links. These links, if clicked and followed by a purchase, may earn us a small commission. However, we assure you that these commissions do not incur any additional cost to you as the user.

We want to emphasise that we only include affiliate links for products and services that we personally use, have thoroughly tested, and have explored to validate their claims and use cases. Our aim is to provide honest and reliable recommendations to our audience.

Our ultimate goal is to assist and provide value to our audience, and in some cases, we may include links that do not offer affiliate commissions. These links are included solely because we believe they could be useful to our users and align with our mission of delivering quality content.

Integrity and transparency are our guiding principles. We will never compromise the accuracy or quality of our content due to our affiliation with any product or service.

We greatly appreciate your support, as the commissions earned through affiliate links enable us to continue developing and maintaining the high standard of content you have come to expect from us.

Ethics and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming more and more pervasive in our lives every day. As part of our ethics, we believe you have the right to know how we use AI on this site. Here are some declarations to keep in mind.
  • We NEVER use 100% AI generated content
  • We may use AI to generate outlines and drafts, but final content is always human generated and approved
  • We do not publish AI generated video or images as a rule. The source statement below the image will disclose the source.
  • We believe that AI is a tool to be used for the augmentation of human intelligence and not to replace it.
  • We acknowledge we live in dynamic and fluid times due to the rapid advancements in AI. Our ethics, practices and views will need adjustment to reflect any changes brought about by AI in an ethical and responsible manner.


If you have any questions or concerns about our ethics statement, please do not hesitate to reach out. We value your trust and are committed to ensuring your experience on our website remains positive, informative, and ethical.

Thank you for being a part of our community!
