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 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:
Any/all of the links on gearalps.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 gearalps.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly from Amazon (and not from gearalps.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay gearalps.com a small commission or other compensation 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.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to provide authentic, unbiased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on gearalps.com, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post. The bottom line is that I only recommend products I Test or use myself or that I would recommend to family and friends.
Your purchase helps support my research efforts. Thank you very, very much, I really really really appreciate your support and trust on gearalps.com
