In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are made to ensure that the readers or viewers of the web knows if the blogger or a presenter is partnered, sponsored, or endorsed with a different company. In simple terms, the readers need to know if the blogger 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 www.thediecastmodel.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases that are made on external affiliate company websites are called affiliate links. When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on thediecastmodel.com to purchase a product or service, the reader buys the item directly from the seller (not from thediecastmodel.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay thediecastmodel.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
thediecastmodel.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. 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.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
