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 assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links at “scaaminfo.com” are affiliate or advertiser links of which we (the team of “scaaminfo.com”) receive a small compensation from the sales of certain items or clicks or views on the advertisements.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on scaaminfo.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from scaaminfo.com). “Scaaminfo.com” has provided the affiliate links of few companies and those companies pay “scaaminfo.com” a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
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 are the advertiser links?
Advertise links are the external website links linked to the display or text advertisements provided by third parties. When a reader clicks on a third-party website link located in display advertisements or text advertisements or views those advertisements while reading the content, “scaaminfo.com” earn a small amount of money on per click as well as per view basis.
Currently, “scaaminfo.com” is displaying advertisements of third-party – Google Adsense, and when reader view or click those ads, “scaaminfo.com” earn a small amount of money.
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.
What about sponsored content?
We do not write sponsored posts. We want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
Amazon Affiliate Links
Scaaminfo.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, we will get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like amazon.com or other product recommendation links… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
