Affiliate Disclosure


In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger 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: Any/all of the links are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Amazon and/or other companies pay a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.

Amazon affiliate links: is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause of funding this website at no additional cost to you.

If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their "shopping cart" through that link, the blogger gets a very small percentage of the sale but again the price to you is no way affected. Amazon links are not “pay per click.”

Likewise, various ads at some point will be outlined across this website. When a visitor clicks on an ad, then will get a small level of compensation which again supports the cost of running and building this website. If you choose not to click on any ads, then that is 100% fine with us but a little support would be greatly appreciated if at all possible.

A lot of time and effort goes into maintaining this website along with the costs associated to maintaining this researched based website - these small commissions hopefully can cover the ongoing costs involved to make it more beneficial to you the end user.
