FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These rules are set in place to make sure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a special company. The readers got to know if the content publisher is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the subsequent about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links www.growvlog.com are affiliate links for which I 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 www.growvlog.com to buy an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from www.growvlog.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay www.growvlog.com small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are precisely the same for readers whether or not they purchase is thru an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link doesn’t change the worth or anything for the visitor.
www.growvlog.com uses two main types of affiliate programs:
Amazon affiliate links.
www.growvlog.com is a participant within the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to supply a way for website owners to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon(.com, .co.uk, .ca, etc) and the other website which will be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
Product affiliate links.
If you click a product affiliate link and buy the merchandise , then i will be able to get a percentage of the sale or another sort of compensation.
Again, prices aren’t different if you utilize these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to provide authentic, un-biased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on www.growvlog.com I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
