In this Disclosure “you” and “your” refer to you as the “Reader” of our Site. “BarkForce,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to BarkForce and our successors, partners, affiliates, subsidiaries and assigns.

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 if the blog(s)/presenter(s)/contributor(s) are sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with different companies. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the website is making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on BarkForce.com are affiliate links from which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What are affiliate links?

Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When you click on an affiliate link located on BarkForce.com to purchase an item, you buy the item from the seller directly (not from BarkForce). Amazon and/or other companies pay BarkForce 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. 

Amazon affiliate links

BarkForce 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.ca, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it and amazon.es.  Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports the operations of BarkForce.com and its associated sites at no additional cost to you.

Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.

Links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and Reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the associated site gets a small percentage of the sale.  Amazon links are not “pay per click.”  If Reader clicks on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, BarkForce will get a commission on that transaction.

Product affiliate links

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then we get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online summit packages are usually affiliate links, also.  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.”
