GLG has affiliations with several companies in the Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) category and links to some of these companies are provided on our Site. Where such an affiliation exists, we strive to note it prominently on or near the page where the affiliate link exists, however, site visitors should be aware some links may not contain such language.
Site participants acknowledge and agree that following an Affiliate link will land them on the Affiliate web site (i.e., they will be taken away from the Site).
