Blue Sky Media, under the business operating name “Your Krabi”, is committed to transparency about its sources of income. Previous incarnations of www.yourkrabi.com (“this website”) sold accommodation and tour products for a commission (i.e. a travel agent); our current business model uses affiliate linking and advertising to generate revenue.
The affiliate and advertising disclosure on this page explains how and why Blue Sky Media (“we”, “us” and “our”), places ads and links on this website directing readers to third party websites that may lead to payment.
The privacy notice on this page sets out how we use and protect any information that you provide when you use this website.
We have written these in plain English, and offered advice on steps you can take if you do not agree with these terms.
We remain editorially independent, and the fact that we receive income from third parties has no bearing on our content.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. This policy is effective from 30 March 2018.
Affiliate & Advertising Disclosure
In order to keep this site running, we have decided to partner with Booking.com as an affiliate. This means whenever we mention and link to a hotel, or list of hotels, that link will send you to their site for more information.
We chose Booking.com because of its coverage in the Krabi area, and its flexible payment and cancellation policy, which – though a pain for most hotel owners – is good for you, the guests. Map markers for hotels are 99% accurate (unlike Google Maps); and the reviews can be helpful.
We choose the hotel pages we link to because we believe they are the best or most suitable options for whatever topic we are writing about (see individual links for context), and will add value to your research. We are never paid to make recommendations: all affiliate links follow our content, and not the other way around.
Booking.com will track your visit to their site (it will do this regardless of whether you click on our links, a Google search result or from anywhere) and, if you then go on to make a booking at any hotel, we will receive a small percentage of any commission they earn. This is known as “revenue share”.
The hotel pays this commission directly to Booking.com after you check out: it is never added to the price you pay.
The income helps us to keep the information on this site totally free and up to date. Thank you for your support! ❤
In the coming months, we hope to replace these with more interesting ads from local businesses in Krabi. These will also be paid for, but hopefully more relevant to our readers.
Note: as we are committed to editorial independence, we do not accept “guest posts” or any other form of “advertorial” content. Unsolicited emails about such will not receive a reply.
Blue Sky Media is committed to protecting your personal information. For this reason, we do not collect any! Below we set out what types of information we do receive and collect when you use and visit this website, and how we safeguard this data.
This website logs data. We record information such as your location (up to city level only), browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), landing/exit pages, device type, date/time, and the length of time you spend here.
