Affiliate Disclosure

FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules

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 are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. The readers need to know if the content publisher 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 are affiliate links for which we receive a compensation from sales of certain items.

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites. When a visitor clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item, the visitor buys the item from the seller directly (not from

Companies pay VORT3X a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.

Prices are exactly the same for visitors whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.

VORT3X uses two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate links

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites.

If you click a product affiliate link and buy the product, then I will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.

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.”

3. Sponsored content

If we publish sponsored content on VORT3X it will disclose this clearly in the post.
