This covers us under the FTC's regulations on affiliate links.
There is a possibility that any link you click inside of Helpified or from any of our partner sites is an affiliate link. This means that, sometimes, Helpified is paid if you click one of those links and purchase a product or service. You should always assume that Helpified is receiving some sort of benefit from you clicking on a linking and going to an external, third party site. Regardless of this potential revenue, unless stated otherwise, the site only recommends products or services they use personally.
The Federal Trade Commission requires that you disclose to your readers when you endorse a product or service and have a "material connection" to the seller. Since Helpified has affiliate links, we have a material connection to these sellers.
These FTC guidelines are available online. (Specifically, look at § 255.5, beginning on page 75.)
