evolutionindustrial has joined the Amazon affiliate program and as such is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for affiliate websites to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and their partner companies.

If you buy something from certain vendors as a result of visiting this website it can earn what is known as an “affiliate commission”.  What that means is that the vendor, for example, Amazon.com, will pay a commission for introducing you to their product or service.  Buying through a recommendation from this site will not cost you any more than if you went directly to the vendor’s site.

Any products or services that are reviewed or recommended on this website have been either purchased, gifted, donated or otherwise legally obtained for the explicit purpose of being used in a project featured on evolutionindustrial.  Any product or service offered by a third party supplier for the primary purpose of advertising, product placement or favourable review will be declined, or, if we think fit, accepted and disclosed at the beginning of any published article.

This way the reader can rest assured that we have either used or have sufficient knowledge and experience with the product or service and are entirely satisfied with its performance and quality.  Any article we may publish about a product or service that we have not purchased or used will be fully researched to the best of our ability to ensure we present an entirely unbiased opinion of the product or service, and this will be disclosed at the beginning of the article also.  The opinions presented in an article published on evolutionindustrial are those of the author and/or reviewer of the product or service and do not necessarily represent those of the manufacturer, vendor or supplier.

evolutionindustrial will never recommend poor quality or unfit-for-purpose products or services simply to earn a commission through their sale via this website.  We will never knowingly recommend poor quality products, or create false reviews to make sales; it is our intention to introduce, present and review high-quality products and services so you can make informed decisions on which ones best suit your needs.

If you do decide to make a purchase via any of our affiliate links, we thank you in advance for your support.

 

FTC Guidelines.

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.  These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know whether the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company.  In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume that all external links on evolutionindustrial are affiliate links of which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

 

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on evolutionindustrial to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from evolutionindustrial).  Amazon and/or other companies will then pay evolutionindustrial a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.  You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. 

 

evolutionindustrial uses two main types of affiliate programs:

1. Amazon affiliate links.

evolutionindustrial is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com.  Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.  Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.

If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their shopping cart via that link within 24 hours of clicking it, the blogger will get a small percentage of the sale.  Amazon links are not “pay per click,” however if you click on the product link and purchase something else from Amazon we will get a commission on that sale.

Anytime you see a link that looks like it will take you to an external site, such as amazon.com, it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.

 

2. Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.  Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links.  Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links; you will not pay more by clicking through to the link.  These links are not “pay per click” unless otherwise noted.

 

Sponsored content.

evolutionindustrial does not write sponsored posts since we want to bring you real, unbiased information from a first-hand perspective.  However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, this will be disclosed clearly at the beginning of the published post.
