FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. Readers need to know if the content publisher 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 sportlia.com are affiliate links for 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 sportlia.com to purchase an item, the reader redirects to the seller’s website and buys the item from the seller directly (not from Sportlia).
Amazon and other companies pay sportlia a small commission or other compensation to help bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether their purchase is through our 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.
We use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links
Sportlia.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites, as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
We research and present the best available products to our visitors to help them choose the perfect one easily.
Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliate links support and help us run this website, however, there will be no additional cost to you.
2. Product affiliate links
If you click the link and buy the product, then sportlia gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.
Again, product prices are not affected if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
What about sponsored content?
Here at Sportlia we do not write sponsored posts. Our mission is to provide you with authentic, unbiased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on Sportlia, I will clearly discuss this in the beginning of the post.
We only recommend products that we use ourselves and would recommend it to our family and friends.
Please note that we will never intentionally endorse a product that does not have our reader’s best interest at heart. We are here to help people live their best life possible first and foremost.
Your purchase will help support our research efforts. It provides a mean way to run this website forever.
