The Needle Phobia Page is one of the web sites of Futurescience, LLC.
Futurescience, LLC does have affiliate relationships with other companies that are personally selected by the Futurescience owner. The vast majority of these businesses are companies with whom the Futurescience owner has personally done business. If you click on one of the links taking you to one of those affiliate companies, they will probably place a tracking cookie on your web browser for an limited amount of time. Those cookies are only for the purpose of giving Futurescience proper credit for the affiliate status (in order that we may earn commissions on any purchases that you make from those companies). Once you are outside of our web site, those other companies may have privacy policies that differ from ours.
The Futurescience web site was founded in January, 1996. The Needle Phobia Page was founded in February, 1997. Most of the web pages of Futurescience, LLC have been operating at a loss for the past few years. This is especially true of the Needle Phobia Page, which was created as a personal passion of Jerry Emanuelson. We are trying very hard to turn this situation around because the owner receives a massive amount of email with many interesting questions that are very time-consuming to answer.
Without purchases by Futurescience.com web visitors from the companies with which we have an affiliate relationship, our web pages could not afford to operate at all.
