FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
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:
The links on catfoodsadvisor.com are affiliate links for which we receive a small commission from sales.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on catfoodsadvisor.com they are then taken to the sellers website. Here they can purchase the item direct from the seller, not us.
Amazon and/or other companies pay Cat Food Advisor a small commission whenever a purchase is made from people who have clicked one of our links.
There is no additional cost to people purchasing products through our website links. The commissions are paid by the seller.
Cat Food Advisor uses two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
Catfoodsadvisor.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.
2. Product affiliate links.
Similar to Amazon Affiliate program- customers click a product affiliate link, then buy the product, we receive a percentage of the sale.
What about sponsored content?
We do not write sponsored posts. We want to provide authentic, un-biased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on Cat Food Advisor, we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
