FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released its Comprehensive Disclosure Rules.
These policies are put in place in order to ensure that viewers or readers of the Web understand if they have been sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different organization.
Readers need to know that the online content publisher is making money by presenting a link or product.
In accordance with the FTC regulations, please assume the following regarding the links and posts on this website.
Any/all of the links on Picklerpal.com are affiliate links for which We receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
PicklerPal may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page.
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on Picklerpal.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from Picklerpal.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay PicklerPal a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase are through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.
Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.
The Site may contain links to affiliate websites, and we receive an affiliate commission for any purchases made by you on the affiliate website using such links. Our affiliates include the following:
- CJ Affiliate

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