On October 7, 2009, the Federal Trade Commission
put out some new guidelines regarding online affiliate
advertising and partnerships.
The disclosure that follows is Interworld
Dynamics attempt to fully comply with the FTC’s policy that
demands we be transparent about any and all affiliate relations
we may have on this website.
In plain English you, the visitor, can
safely bet that any and all links on this site are affiliate
links. If you click on these links and go visit the resulting
site, a cookie will be set in your web browser that will cause
us to receive a commission “IF” you purchase a product on the
other end. This is a legitimate way to monetize and pay for the
operation of web sites and we gladly reveal our affiliate
relationships to you.
In addition we fully disclose that hyperlinks on
this site are in most cases shortened, and in some cases cloaked
to hide long ugly links for functionality and tracking purposes.
We have nothing to hide and we are proud of our relationship
with the fine products and services found on this site.
Link tracking, shortening and cloaking is a very common practice
on all types of web sites.
Furthermore you can absolutely, positively and
surely bet that we have personally purchased, used and put into
practice, every product or service that has been reviewed or
advertised on this site before we decided to sign up for any
affiliate program and place a link here.
So just for the record, you, your friends and
neighbors, and the good old U.S. Government should consider
yourself properly notified, disclosed, disclaimed, and generally informed
regarding this very important subject.
