This website will hosts Google Adsense ads on its pages. Those ad are serviced by Google Ads and Federico O Castillo Jr also known as Rico Castillo, Owner of RicoLes Companies, LLC, have no control over those ads.


From time to time, on my blog, site or article posted, I will recommend a product or service for which I will receive a commission if you purchase the product through a link or banner ad provided.

Although I may receive a commission on sales, it does not mean whether I recommend that product. I will not recommend a product or service to you unless I believe it works and is a product that I would recommend to my family and is something I would use myself. 

Sometimes, however, I will mention a product or service and also put a link to it, although I have not used it or have any experience with it.  I simply put a link to it so that you can use the link as convenience to purchase the product, if you so choose.  I will disclose that I have no experience with the product or service.  If you decide to purchase I will still receive compensation for it.

I do, however, appreciate it if you do purchase the product or service suggested in my blog, site or article posted.  Most of the time, the affiliate links to the products are products or service that I have use and are happy with.


My goal as the owner of this site is to always be transparent and aim to resolve any issues that may be a conflict of interest in a very expedient manner.  If you have any questions and would like to discuss anything with me regarding this disclosure, please contact me using my contact page.
