Compensation & Affiliate Disclosure Notice

The Federal Trade Commission requires that we tell you about any relationship we may have with the products and/or services offered and/or reviewed on this website. We were going to tell you any way, but since they asked so nicely…

We operate this website as a business and our goal is to make money. One of the ways we do that is by using affiliate programs for monetization. You should assume that any product and/or service link you click will generate some cash for us (aka commissions credited to this website). Nothing hidden, no tricks, we’re in it for the money. It’s that simple.

Here are the guidelines we operate at Vintage-Charm-Jewelry.com:

  • We are rarely paid to do a review. In almost all cases, we don’t accept money to review a product or service. We invest our own time to review and test products. We absorb all of the costs associated with the reviews we make. If we are ever paid to do a review, we will clearly disclose it at the end of the review.
  • When we test products or services – we don’t pay for them. They are sent to us by the manufacturer. Rarely do we request these products or services. In almost all cases, the product or service owner approaches us first via a press release or a phone call. If we feel it’s something you might get a kick out of, then we request they send us the product or provide us with the service for free.
  • When we’re finished using the product for whatever reason (like writing a review) – we keep it. We just don’t have the time or energy to return it. Sorry.
  • If we supply a link to a product or service in a review, we might get paid a commission if you click on it. We’ll disclose that to you too. And if you don’t see anything about it being a paid link, we aren’t making any money on it. Either way, we’ll try and let you know what’s up.
  • If you click on a link from the website (or newsletter) and it takes you to another website (like eBay or Amazon), then we are probably making a small commission whenever you buy a product or service there. Thank you.

Since you’ve read this far, we would also like to disclose that Vintage-Charm-Jewelry.com does not sell any products directly. All website income is earned from affiliations and sponsor ads.

We have affiliations and/or participate in marketing programs with, but not limited to, Google Inc., eBay Inc., Amazon.com Inc., Commission Junction Inc., Clickbank, and more. These companies pay us commissions when you click on their links. Thank you for this too.

And by the way, those text and image ads that appear throughout the website are 3rd party (Google Adsense) and sponsored ads. We do not personally endorse the products and services advertised in these ads and these companies are not affiliated with Vintage-Charm-Jewelry.com.

One last thing, this website is sponsored, created, and/or supported by a company, organization or group of organizations. If you have any questions about any affiliations on this website, please don’t hesitate to contact us at webmaster@vintage-charm-jewelry.com. We will be happy to clarify or provide additional details if necessary.

See, we’re not trying to hide anything from you. We think it’s important that you, as a consumer, know of any relationship between us and the products/or services we are reviewing or that you’re accessing from our website. Isn’t that nice? We think other websites should disclose things too. It’s the law.
