What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on Smart Tech Portal.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly.
- Amazon and/or other companies pay TechFoogle.com a small commission for helping to bring customers to their website.
- Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is 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.
FTC Rules For Disclosure Compliance
As in 2018, FTC (known as Federal Trade Commission) showed their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
According to their new rules, every reader or viewer need to know all about affiliate links. If the content is sponsored, publisher or partnered with any company the readers should be aware of this.
Any/all of the links on techfoogle.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you. As techfoogle.com has grown, so have costs associated with running and maintaining it, and affiliate links are a way I help offset these costs.
If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and would recommend without an affiliate link.
Unless otherwise noted, all reviews are of items I have purchased myself and I am not paid or compensated in any way.
Periodically I will review or mention products and services on my website. If I believe it is a good product, and the merchant selling said product or service offers an affiliate program, I have no issue referring others to the product via an affiliate link, which means I may receive a commission or some form of compensation if you buy the product I recommend.
