Are these links safe? 

Yes! Sovrn Commerce uses market-leading, real-time technologies to detect and immediately block bad redirects, malware, and other threats from bad actors.

What is the difference between a sovrn.co and a redirect.viglink.com link?

Sovrn.co is a vanity URL made to shorten the length of an affiliate redirect link. This is used when the link will be fully visible on a site or when it is posted on social media. Both of these URLs are affiliated in the same way through Sovrn Commerce.

Can I use CUIDs with a shortened link?
