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 on HealthyBlackWoman.com are affiliate links from which we 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 AuNaturaleNutrition.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Au Naturale Nutrition). Amazon and/or other companies pay Au Naturale Nutrition 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.
We use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
Healthy Black Woman Blogs are 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, endless.com, myhabit.com, smallparts.com, or amazonwireless.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.
Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.
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, I will get commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like http://astore.amazon.com/…… or www.amazon.com/….
it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same 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. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online summit packages are usually affiliate links, also. 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.”
List of companies with which we have an affiliate relationship:
What about sponsored content?
We usually do not write sponsored posts. We want to bring you real, un-biased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company, we will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
As for our social media pages where we use Amazon & other affiliate links for product recommendations, we 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. (In the case of my clients’ blogs and sites, their recommendations are also prodicts and services that they use or would recommend to their friends and family)
Your purchase helps support my work in bringing you real information about living a healthy and joyful life.
