Brick Fanatics uses affiliate marketing and advertising to help fund the costs of running one of the most popular LEGO site in the UK.
Who runs the site
Brick Fanatics is owned and operated by Tiro Media Ltd.
How affiliate marketing works
When you make a purchase or, sometimes, carry out some other action as direct result of clicking on a link at Brick Fanatics, we will receive a small commission. For example when you click on a banner advertising The Minifigure Store we will receive a commission. In fact, once you visit an affilitate link we will recieve commission on anything you buy be it a LEGO set or something else entirely.
The level of commission varies depending on the merchant but generally it’s a few percent of the price of the item you purchase.
To help out affiliate partners we will run shopping articles with news on offers promotions and products etc. The links in these articles are also affiliate links.
Occasionally manufacturers and publishers send us items to review. In such instances it will be clearly stated in the review that this is the case. We never accept payment or products in return for a positive review and we never post sponsored advertorials.

Brick Fanatics is run by fans for fans, we are not running this to make a profit but it does takes a lot of time and money to run a website like Brick Fanatics so it’s thanks to affiliate marketing that it can be operated to a high standard and is free for everyone to use.
The money we make from affiliate marketing costs you nothing but keeps us online, so thank you for your continued support!
