In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, youtube videos, websites etc.) know if the media is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In basic terms, the readers need to know if the website recommending a product is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links are affiliate links of which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on a website to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from said website). Companies pay a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.
You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
What about sponsored content?
We do not offer sponsored posts. I we bring you real, un-biased information. However, if anything should ever be sponsored by a company, we will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the article.
NOTE: We only recommend products we use ourselves or that we would recommend for family & friends. Your purchase helps support our work in bringing you a free and excellent service.
Amazon affiliate links.
This website is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
