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 my site: Any/all of the links on foodhealthrive.com and/or greenwoodholisticnutrition.com are affiliate links from 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 foodhealthrive.com and/or greenwoodholisticnutrition.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from foodhealthrive.com and/or greenwoodholisticnutrition.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay foodhealthrive.com and/or greenwoodholisticnutrition.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
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.
I use one main type of affiliate programs:
Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work this way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. 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.”
List of companies with which I have an affiliate relationship:
Thrive Market: Thrive Market is a membership community that uses the power of direct buying to deliver the world’s best healthy food and natural products to their members at wholesale prices, and to sponsor free memberships for low-income American families.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, un-biased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose this clearly in the very beginning of the post.
As for my social media pages where I use Amazon & other affiliate links for product recommendations, I will include a link to this post, or put “(affiliate link)”, or #ad in the post.
NOTE: I only recommend products I use myself or that I would recommend for my family & friends.
Your purchase helps support my work in bringing you real information about health and wellness, and creating new recipes I share freely. Thank you so much for your support! – Carole
