Beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.
From Tim Ferriss: “Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.
This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules.”
To comply with these laws and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product linked to, featured on or found within Wellness-Media.com, the following all hold true:
-Author/Company received monetary compensation
-Author/Company received culinary compensation
-Author/Company received travel compensation
-Author/Company received free products
In other words, since the FTC assumes that you (wonderful reader) are either incapable of realizing that links to products might be affiliate links or that you are in danger of being brainwashed by bloggers, Wellness Media makes the following very clear:
-Assume that Wellness Media makes money on every post, link, picture, social media post, etc.
-If you click on a banner ad, text ad or affiliate link, Wellness Media receives compensation in some way.
-When Wellness Media links to a favorite product or reviews a product, assume that the product was free unless otherwise stated and that the links are affiliate links
