Greetings, everyone. Your host and guide here at The Forensic Affiliate, Paul Mindra.

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure ComplianceThese 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 used at are affiliate links from which I receive compensation from sales of certain items. That is a fairly huge assumption to make but it’s probably best to error on the side of safety as far as compliance is concerned.

The Affiliate Program method was pioneered by Learn more here at Practical ECommerce.

Amazon and/or other companies pay a commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate programs.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to read this Affiliate Disclosure.

Kindest regards,

Paul Mindra.
