FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
To ensure that the readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed or partner with a different company, the Federal Trade Commission has released their rules.
According to these rules, the reader should know if the publisher is making money by affiliate links or by promoting products.
In compliance with these rules, please assume that Any/all of the links on ArtOfIroning.com are affiliate links for which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are affiliates links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites. When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on ArtOfIroning.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from ArtOfIroning).
Amazon and/or other companies pay ArtOfIroning a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase it 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.
ArtOfIroning uses two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliates links
ArtOfIroning 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.
2. Product affiliate links
If you click a product affiliate link and buy the product, then we will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.
Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
Do we write sponsored content?
We do not write sponsored posts. We want to provide authentic, unbiased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on ArtOfIronong, we will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post. The bottom line is that we only recommend products we use or those we would recommend to our families and friends.
Your purchase helps support our research efforts. Thank you very much!
