Recently, the Federal Trade Commission released new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, videos, podcasts, etc) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link, product, or service. As UsefulHumans.com has grown, so have costs associated with running and maintaining it. Listed below are several ways we offset those costs.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
- Any/all of the links on UsefulHumans.com are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and purchase certain items, we receive a small commission. The price is the same for you, though! Thank you for your support.
- If we post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that we personally use, support and/or would recommend without an affiliate link.
- We sometimes review items that are sent to UsefulHumans.com for free. All of our opinions regarding them are our own. We only endorse products that align with our ideals and that we believe would be of value to our readers.
- If a post is sponsored by a company, we will disclose that within the post. We are very selective about what we recommend, and that holds true for sponsored posts. If it’s not something we own or have used, we won’t recommend it.
