FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission published the new rules and regulations for compliance with disclosure.
These rules and regulations were set in place to make sure that readers or viewers of web media are aware of the publisher or blogger are sponsored, attested, or accompanied by the other company. The readers and viewers need to have knowledge if the material publisher is earning profit by sharing a product or link.
Following the FTC guidelines, please consider the given below about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links on our web site are partnered or affiliated links for which I receive compensation from the sales of different products.
What Are the Affiliate Links?
Buying’s are done on external partnered or affiliate organization web sites: when a reader or viewer clicks on an affiliate or partnered link located on our website for buying a product, the reader or viewers purchases the product directly from the seller (he does not purchase this from us).
Other companies and Amazon company pay minute compensation for helping people to bring on their website.
Prices of the product exactly remain the same for the customer either they buy the product from us or directly from the Amazon web site. Clicking on an affiliate or partner link and clicking a non-affiliate or non-partnered link does not alter the price of the product or anything else for the visitor.
We basically use two main kinds of affiliate or partnered programs:
- 1. Amazon affiliate links.
We are a participant and partner in the services of Amazon LLC Associates Program, an affiliate or partnered marketing program made to give a means for web site owners to earn money by connecting to Amazon.com and other partnered or affiliated web sites, as well as to other web sites that may be partnered through services of Amazon LLC association program.
- 2. The product partnered or affiliate links.
If you click an item partnered link and buy the item, then I will be in a position to get a small percentage of the sale, or some other type of compensation can also be got.
Again, prices are not different; prices remain same if you use these given affiliate links. You will not pay more than the original cost by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
What about sponsored content?
I do not write or publish any sponsored posts and materials. I want to provide authentic, un-biased, and pure information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on my web site, I will open this clearly at the very start of the post.
The bottom line is that I only recommend products I use for myself or that I would recommend to family and friends.
Your purchase helps support my research efforts. Thank you very, very much! I appreciate you!
