AFFILIATE DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT
Last updated January 15, 2021
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) published endorsement guidelines in 2015. These rules require audiences of web media (YouTube, blogs, social media) to be informed if the publisher is partnering with companies. This informs you on whether a website makes money through sharing links, products, or not.
In response to FTC’s directive, please be informed that we earn commissions from product endorsements on this site. Despite that, none of our informational reviews are sponsored. Our coverage is honest, unbiased, and meant to help you settle for the best product.
WHAT ARE AFFILIATE LINKS?
Before we find out what affiliate links are, let’s start by defining the term affiliate. An affiliate is a person that searches for a product, tests it, and promotes it. Each time a sale is generated, they earn a percentage of the profit. The sales are usually tracked using unique links assigned to the publisher. These are referred to as affiliate links that help vendors track sales.
Kicheny.com does have affiliate links that enable us to earn a commission. It’s just a polite way of supporting our efforts for giving you access to premium content for free. This doesn’t in any way raise the product prices. Everything remains as it is. And we get our fair slice of the vendor’s profit. It’s simply a win-win situation.
We use the following affiliate programs:
1. AMAZON AFFILIATE LINKS
Kicheny.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, 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.
2. PRODUCT AFFILIATE LINKS
These work the same way with affiliate links. If you buy a product through our endorsements, we get a percentage of the profit. It consists of items that consumers buy directly from vendors as opposed to marketplaces. Once more, prices are the same if you buy them via our referral links. These links are not “pay-per-click” and you’ll not be charged extra.
3. SPONSORED CONTENT
All our efforts are channeled towards providing unbiased and honest reviews. However, we allow partnerships for sponsored content. If we do so, we’ll inform all our readers beforehand. You’ll notice this by seeing a “sponsored” label on article and category tag.
NOTE: We only recommend products that we’ve purchased or given to us by our family and friends. Your purchase is important in supporting our work. THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH! We appreciate YOU.
