The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I have between a product manufacturer or service provider when I write about a product or service.

Here are the guidelines we operate under at 6webs.com:

  • We are NOT paid to do a review.  We never accept money to review a product or service. We invest our own time to review products. We absorb the entire cost to tape and post-produce all videos we tape about products. If we are ever paid to do a review, it will be clearly annotated at the end of the review.
  • If we create a link to a product or service in a review, we may or may not get paid a commission if you purchase the product or service.
  • If you click a link from one of our posts or newsletters and it delivers you to a website selling that product (e.g. Amazon.com, etc.), we receive a commission from that website should you buy.
  • To protect the integrity of the reviews and this website all reviews are fully conducted before any affiliate relationship is started. We operate under this guideline to ensure we as a review site are not influenced by any one vendor and you as a consumer have the best information possible when making a decision.

These are good rules and practices in today’s digital world. It’s important for you as a consumer to understand the relationship between a person reviewing the product and the manufacturer or service provider. If you don’t see a disclosure policy as part of a review of a product, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
