FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
The Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance in 2015.
These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. The readers need to know if the content publisher 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 on fitnesssolutionstips.com are affiliate links for which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
Affiliation is a commission based service for sale of products on website or blog. The affiliate company gives links of their product to put on website which are called affiliate links. Affiliate Company gives commission on sale of each product through our website links.
What Are Affiliate Links?
The products links given by the affiliate company to put on website are called affiliate links. When a viewer clicks on an affiliate link located on my website fitnesssolutionstips.com to purchase a product, the viewer buys the item from the seller directly not from my website.
Affiliate companies pay small commission on each sale from my website
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.
Fitnesssolutiontips.com uses two main types of affiliate programs:
- Amazon affiliate links.
fitnesssolutionstips.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites, as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
- Product affiliate links.
The products on my site have the links of sponsored company. When you buy any product from my site by clicking these links, I will get some commission from the sale, which will not affect the price of product for you. The sponsored company will pay me percentage of each sold product. The commission vary from product to product.
Note that these links are not the PPC (pay per click) nor the PPI (pay per impression). I get only the sold commission from my affiliate company.
- About sponsored content?
I shall provide the real, authentic and the best of my knowledge information in my posts. I do not write posts for the sponsoring companyon my web site Fitnesssolutionstips.com.
If the sponsor company asked me to publish the sponsor’s post on my site, I will clearly mention it on the top of my post.
My website is totally an affiliate site and I shall share researched based articles to get small part of share from the sponsor and all the products have the links of the sponsor links. Thanks for support and appreciation.
The bottom line is that I only recommend products I use myself or that I would recommend to family and friends.
