FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has implemented rules to ensure that readers are aware of any sponsored, endorsed, or partnered content on a website. This is to make sure that readers understand if the content publisher is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, we want to inform you about how we handle affiliate links on our website, marpedal.com.
Marpedal.com uses affiliate links for which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items. Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites, meaning that when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on marpedal.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly and not from Marpedal.
Amazon and/or other companies pay Marpedal.com a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website. Prices are the same for readers whether they purchase 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.
Types of Affiliate Programs
We use two main types of affiliate programs:
- Amazon affiliate links
Marpedal.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide aid for websites in earning an advertisement fee by means of advertising and linking to Amazon products. When clicking on any of the Amazon links provided by marpedal.com, the cost of the product or any other item you purchase is not increased. As an Amazon Associate, we earn affiliate commissions from qualifying purchases.
- Product affiliate links
If you click a product affiliate link and buy the product, then we will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links, and you will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
We do not write sponsored posts, and we strive to provide authentic, unbiased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on marpedal.com, we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
We promise to link to those Amazon products that our readers and visitors might be interested in and would like to know more about. This website does not contain any content which might create a conflict of interest.
Thank you for your consideration and support. 🤩
