Affiliate Disclosure

FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.

These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or visitors of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. The 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:

We have an affiliate relationship with all of the good and service providers that we talk about in our blog, and we can receive compensation when you purchase a good or service from that provider. In particular, all links to Amazon are affiliate links.

What Are Affiliate Links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Thewildtrend).

Amazon pays Thewildtrend a small commission. Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an 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.

Thewildtrend uses mainly one affiliate program:

Amazon affiliate links is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn commission by linking to and affiliated sites.

What about sponsored content?

We do not write sponsored posts, because our goal is to provide authentic, unbiased information. However, in the future, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on Thewildtrend, we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.

The bottom line is that we only recommend products we use ourselves or that we would recommend to family and friends.

Your purchase helps support our research efforts. Thank you very much!
