Affiliate Disclosure

March 24, 2016 Leave a comment

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 (blogs, Youtube videos, 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 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 that take you to a 3rd party website where you can purchase a product or service, are affiliate links of 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 to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from LayLo 3D). Amazon and/or other companies pay LayLo 3D 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 the link.

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate links.

LayLo 3D 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,,,,, or  Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliate links helps support LayLo 3D to provide more content 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 a link on this website takes you to, ​it is an Amazon affiliate link.

2. Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Links that take you to a 3rd party website where you have the ability to purchase a product, or service are usually affiliate links, as well. 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.”

What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I only write about topics, products, and services I am interested in, in an unbiased fashion. However, if a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.

Links on my social media pages

If you click a link on one of my social media pages and it takes you to a 3rd party website where you have the ability to purchase a product, or service, it is most likely an affiliate link.

NOTE: I only recommend products I use myself or that I would recommend to my family & friends.
Your purchase helps support my work and helps give me the ability to provide more content.
THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH!!! I appreciate ALL your support!!! – Landon
