FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
in 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new guidelines regarding Disclosure Compliance.
These guidelines ensure that viewers or readers of online media are aware that the publisher or blogger is endorsed, sponsored, or collaborated with a different business. The viewers must know whether the content creator earns money from sharing links or products.
Following FTC guidelines, you should assume these things about the posts and links on this website:
All of the hyperlinks found on bestofmonitors.com may be affiliate hyperlinks, for which I earn a small fee from the sale of certain products.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made through websites of external affiliate companies when a user clicks an affiliate link found on bestofmonitors.com to buy something, that user purchases the item direct from the retailer (not directly from bestofmonitors).
Amazon or other companies pay bestofmonitors a tiny commission or another form of compensation to help get customers to their site.
The prices are the same for all readers, regardless of whether they purchase via affiliate links or a link that is not an affiliate. When clicking an affiliate link and clicking a link that is not affiliated does alter the cost or any other aspect for the customer.
Bestofmonitors has two primary kinds of Affiliate programs.
- Amazon affiliate links.
Bestofmonitors.com is a member of bestofmonitors.com is a participant in Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program created to enable site owners to earn money by linking to Amazon.com and other affiliated websites and other websites associated with the Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
- Product affiliate links.
If you click an affiliate link and then purchase the item, I’ll receive a portion of the purchase or another form of payment.
Prices aren’t the same if you choose to use affiliate hyperlinks. There is no additional cost for clicking on the hyperlink. These links aren’t “pay per click.”
What is sponsored content?
I don’t publish posts for sponsored content. I’m trying to provide genuine non-biased, objective information. If, however, a business wants to promote sponsored content on bestofmonitors, I’ll be clear about this at the very beginning of the post.
The main thing to remember is that I recommend only products that I use or recommend to family members and acquaintances.
Your purchase supports the research I am doing. Thank you for your support! I appreciate you!
