The Federal Trade Commission requires that we disclose any relationship between a product manufacturer or service provider when we write about a product or service.
Here are the guidelines that we operate under at TrustedRoofingCompanies.com:
- We are not paid nor do we seek payment to review of any product or service.
- If we create a link to a product or service, sometimes we may receive a commission if you purchase the product or service. For example if we create a link to an Amazon product and you clicked through to buy it we may receive a small commission.
- If you click an advertisement link from one of our pages we may receive a small commission for the referral click. An example would be google adwords.
These are good rules and practices in today’s digital world. It’s important for you as a consumer to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer or service provider. If you don’t see a disclosure policy as part of a review of a product, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
