In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) 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.
On this website, I will be making money if you click on an affiliate link and purchase a product. I will also earn revenue via Pay Per Click because I have Google Adsense account.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all the links myunitedfootball.com 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 .com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from myunitedfootball.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay myunitedfootball.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.
Myunitedfootball.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.
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. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages 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”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
The reviews that I make on this site are based on my personal research and can also be based on my personal experience. I never create false reviews to make sales.
This website was built on the Wealthy Affiliate platform, and as such, one of the aims of this website is to earn commission from affiliate companies such as Amazon and United Direct- Manchester United Online Megastore. At United Direct, you can purchase all the products offered by Manchester United Football Club. Clicking on a link on any page or post on this site that leads to you making a purchase from that company, will result in that affiliate company paying a percentage of the money you spent to buy the product, to me.
Buying any product through myunitedfootball.com will not result in the price(s) going any higher than it is being offered by the company.
There are ads placed on posts/pages on this site by Google Adsense and as such, if you click on any ad that leads you to the site of that company, I will be paid less than a dollar for that click, but it will come at no cost to you.
Please note, I am not an affiliate of Google, but my site is connected to GoogleAdsense to earn revenue via their “Pay Per Click” (PPC) system.
