FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
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 are aware if the 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. Any/all of the links on fundthetrader.com are affiliate links for 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 fundthetrader.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Fundthetrader).
Amazon and/or other companies pay Fundthetrader a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you whether your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.
We as affiliates simply market the programs to our audience, therefore the prices will never be more.
In fact, it may at times be less due to discounts extended to our subscribers/audience/website visitors.
Types of Affiliate Programs
Through the Amazon Associates Program, Fundthetrader.com provides you with a variety of product options through our affiliate links. This affiliate advertising program is designed to provide a means for sites to earn money by advertising and linking to Amazon products.
Through our affiliate links we receive a small commission from the products you purchase on Amazon at no additional cost to you. Amazon links are not pay per click.
Partnership Affiliate Links
The only time we make a commission will be when a product/service has been purchased through the use of our affiliate links. We would receive a small compensation for guiding and directing you to our partners. Through us, prices will NEVER be more, however may be less depending on our partnership relationships. These links are not pay per click.
Sponsored & Advertising Content
All sponsored or paid-advertising will clearly be indicated/flagged as such.
