The opinions expressed here on the OnlineDownloads blog are that of myself – Little Nicky – as an individual and are not necessarily the opinions of nor reflect the views of any companies I have ownership interest in.
Every now and again I might review a product or service on my blog. If I believe it’s a good product, and the merchant selling said product or service has an affiliate program, I have no issue referring other people to a *good* product/service with an affiliate link, which means I might be paid a commission if you buy the product I recommend.
Why am I explaining this?
But the FTC feels I need to explain that in detail because otherwise, they think you might not be smart enough to see the difference between a real review and a bullshit review on your own. They think I might be willing to sell my reputation for an affiliate commission. They’re wrong. But I have to tell you anyway to cover my own expenses.
If you think it taints the reviews I write on my site, you’re welcome to get the hell off my blog – and be sure not to let the virtual door hit you on the way out.
Go ahead for further information.
The new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Guidelines requires that the owner of this blog, myself – Little Nicky needs to disclose any connection between the products on this site and the content here.
The blog has financial relationships with some companies mentioned on this site, and may be compensated if consumers choose to apply for or purchase products via links in our content. However, whether or not we are compensated does not determine which products we mention or result in preferential treatment in our editorial pieces.
This site is a blog written and edited by me – Little Nicky. I neither “paid to post” nor given money or products to make this site or submit a review. This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards.
I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. I as an affiliate means that if you buy a product through this site, I may make a reward. The ones that are here are here because the review team finds them applicable and helpful.
Even though I may earn compensation as an affiliate for our posts or advertisements, I always give honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question, though I will do my best to make sure that any information provided is accurate.
This blog does contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be identified. Please understand that I cannot guarantee that your results will be similar to the one described here. Your results are going to depend upon on numerous individualized factors, over which we have no control.
If there are any perceived claims of results on this site, they are not the results of the typical reader. I make no claims as to what the typical or average reader can expect. All results are unique and directly influenced by the individual person, his or her efforts, his or her partner, and the situation. No one can guarantee a certain outcome.
Also please know that names and events in this site may have been changed or altered to protect the privacy of those involved. In terms of complete disclosure required by the FTC, you should consider this blog as for entertainment rather than educational purposes. By no means, I’m an expert or make any claims to be. Thus I ask you to read, consider, and make your own informed decisions.
Any content, advertising space or post that comes with compensation via product, service or cash will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. I will identify such content as follows:
(aff): Affiliate links, meaning if you purchase a product after clicking on any of these links, I will receive a commission on the sale.
(review): I received only a free sample of the product or service to review and write about my thoughts. What I write reflects my honest opinion, and I am under no obligation to write a positive review. However, I try to weed out products I don’t believe would be useful to me or my readers before agreeing to do a review in the first place. When I do reviews, I will offer my fair, balanced opinion and list pros and cons.
(sponsored opp): A sponsored opportunity in which a company or PR firm paid my way to an event, sent me on a trip, or otherwise sponsored me via a product, service or compensation for my time. As a part of their sponsorship package, they may have requested that I write a review or series of posts about their products or services on my site. The opinions contained in these posts are my own, and again, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
(sponsored post): An advertiser has written their own copy, edited by me, and paid me a fee for posting it on my site. These posts will appear infrequently and will not contain my opinion.
