FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules

The Federal Trade Commission released its new disclosure compliance rules in 2015.

We have established these rules to ensure that web media readers and viewers know when a blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with another company. Content publishers must inform their readers if they are making money from sharing links or products.

We receive a small commission on certain sales made through the affiliate links on shoescircle.com.

What Are Affiliate Links?

The reader purchases an item from the seller directly when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on shoescircle.com.

Shoes Circle is paid by Amazon and/or other companies for bringing customers to their websites.

Regardless of whether a reader buys through an affiliate link or not, prices are the same. A visitor cannot change his or her price by clicking either an affiliate or a non-affiliate link.

In terms of affiliate programs, Shoescircle uses two main types:

1. Amazon affiliate links.

As a participant in Amazon.com’s Associates Program, ShoesCircle.com provides its users a way to earn commissions by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites, such as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.

2. Product affiliate links.

I will receive compensation if you click an affiliate link and buy the product.

Using these affiliate links does not change prices. By clicking on the links, you will not pay more. No click-through fees are involved.

What about sponsored content?

Sponsored posts do not appear on our blog. Sponsored posts do not appear on our blog. This blog does not publish sponsored posts since I do not want to bias the information I provide. I will however disclose clearly at the beginning of each post if a company wants to publish sponsored content on shoescircle.

As a rule, I only recommend products I use myself or that I would recommend to friends and family.

My research is supported by your purchase. I greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
