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 hahaget.net 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 hahaget.net to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from hahaget.net). Amazon and/or other companies pay Hahaget Blog 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. HahaGet Blog uses three main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
hahaget.net is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites, as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
2. Amazon Product affiliate links.
If you click an Amazon product affiliate link and buy the product, then I will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. 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.”
3. Other Product links.
We may also write some professional product evaluation articles and add product links from hahaget.com. HahaGet is our own brand, and hahaget.com is our online store. If you think our content is helpful to you, we also thank you very much for purchasing our own products through the links in our blog content.
What about sponsored content?
We do not write sponsored posts. I want to provide authentic, un-biased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on hahaget.net, we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post. The bottom line is that we only recommend products we use ourselves or that we would recommend to family and friends. Your purchase helps support our research efforts. Thank you very, very much! I appreciate you!
