PWP TOS Affiliate Programs

Question regarding TOS for Personal Web Pages and affiliate references or advertising links.  As an example, if I have a sports-oriented website, am I prohibited from having an affiliate link to say Sports Authority or a photo link to a local sporting goods retailer?

Strictly speaking you probably shouldn't.

 

In reality, it's highly likely no one will notice.

 

If you have to install some server-side code, you can.t.

Along with Beth's advice, you should check with Sport's Authority or other websites about their policies.
