New rules regarding Disclosure Compliance were released by the Federal Trade Commission in 2015.
These rules make sure that people who review or read web media know that the publisher or blogger is endorsed, sponsored or partnered with another company. Those reading the content are aware that the publisher is earning money by sharing a product or a link.
Assume the following information regarding posts and links on this website, in compliance with FTC guidelines:
All/any GeneratorWhiz.com links are affiliate links, and therefore, we get a small compensation when certain items sell.
What Are Affiliate Links?
When someone is reading a blog or review on GeneratorWhiz.com, if they click on an affiliate link and buy an item via this link, they are making a purchase not from GeneratorWhiz.com, but from the seller of the product directly.
Companies, such as Amazon, provide a form of compensation, such as a small commission to GeneratorWhiz.com for helping to drive customers to the website.
Whether a consumer buys the item via a non-affiliate link or an affiliate link, the price of the item is exactly the same. Prices are not more or less just because someone made their purchase through an affiliate link. The prices remain the same.
There are two primary affiliate programs that GeneratorWhiz.com uses:
1. Amazon Affiliate Links
GeneratorWhiz.com takes part in the Associates Program via Amazon Services LLC. This is a type of advertising program that works to provide website owners with a way to earn money by linking to Amazon.com and the websites that are affiliated with Amazon’s Associates Program.
2. Product Affiliate Links
If you buy an item after clicking on an affiliate link or the product, we receive some form of compensation, such as a percentage of the sale.
To reiterate, the price of the item does not change when you make a purchase via an affiliate link. These are not “pay-per-click” links. The price of the item does not increase when you buy it through an affiliate link.
What is Sponsored Content?
We do not participate in sponsored posts. We are dedicated to providing you with information that is unbiased and authentic. However, GeneratorWhiz will clearly disclose whether anything is a sponsored post at the beginning of the content should a company request a sponsored post.
Ultimately, we only recommend products that we would suggest to our friends and family, or those that we have personally used.
Our research efforts are supported by your purchases. We sincerely appreciate you. Thank you very much for your support.
