FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
Readers and viewers of online media should be aware of the fact that a blogger or writer may be affiliated with a certain company through the use of these rules. Readers need to know if the author is making money by promoting a product or a link.
Please assume the following about links and content on this website in accordance with the FTC guidelines:
The links on FairLaptop.com are all affiliate links, which means that we gain a little commission on the sale of certain products.
What Do Affiliate Links Mean?
When a reader clicks on an affiliate link on FairLaptop.com to purchase a product, the reader immediately buys the product from the vendor’s website (not from FairLaptop.com).
FairLaptop.com receives a modest fee or another reward from Amazon and/or other companies for its assistance in bringing customers to their website.
No matter if they buy through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link, the prices are exactly the same for the reader Clicking an affiliate link and non-affiliate link has no effect on the customer’s experience.
There are two main types of affiliate applications used by FairLaptop.com:
1. Amazon Affiliate Links.
FairLaptop.com is a participant ” As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases ” within the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate promoting program designed to offer a method for website homeowners to earn charges by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated websites, in addition to different web sites that could be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
2. Product Affiliate Links.
In the event that you purchase a product after clicking on an affiliate link, we’ll receive a percentage of the transaction or some other form of revenue.
In this case, the prices aren’t going to be significantly different whether you use these affiliate connections. You will not incur any further costs if you click on the link. There is no “pay per click” associated with these links.
What About Sponsored Content?
Sponsored posts are not something we do. We must provide factual information that is free of bias. In that case, we’ll make it obvious at the beginning of the post that the post is sponsored by the organization. The bottom line is that we only recommend products that we either use ourselves or that we would recommend to our own families and friends.
Your purchase aids in our research. Sincerely, thank you!
