Amazon 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 viewers 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:
Any/all of the links on Backpackerstrip.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 Backpackerstrip.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Backpackerstrip.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay Backpackerstrip.com a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
In Backpackerstrip.com we have two types of affiliate program:
1. Amazon Affiliate Links
Backpackerstrip.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.
2. Product Affiliate Links
When you click a product affiliate link and buy the product, then I will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.
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.”
I am a fan of Outdoor gear and products. I love to study and research on outdoor gears. Here I recommend products which I use myself or suggest to my friend or family. Your engagement helps my research efforts. Thanks a Lot!
