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 be assured that unless stated specifically, I receive no compensation from any links provided (other than my PayPal donation links). APupStop.com is not a sponsored blog.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on .com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from APupStop.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay APupStop.com 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.
*At present, I no longer have any affiliate links to, especially, Amazon or Chewy.com. I will not affiliate with businesses and corporations that use bully tactics against other, smaller businesses for political or social control. Thus, the info below is merely a statement to comply with FTC guidelines. We do hope, in the future, to make affiliations with businesses of integrity that seek to encourage growth of other businesses–as opposed to attempting to destroy others’ businesses, such as Amazon and Chewy.com have perpetrated.
1. Affiliate links.
An affiliate advertising program is designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to another site’s properties (products). Those sites offer a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our any affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post. Any questions or concerns send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
