Full Disclosure and Privacy Policy

This is a blog about investing, personal finance, and topics about finances and money. The FTC has issued new guidance regarding online media and the endorsement of products.  So, in order to be clear, you should understand how I am compensated for the things that I write on this blog. There are three main ways that Money Q&A earns income, and you can find out more below with its full disclosure and privacy policy.

1. Free stuff. I love free stuff. I love free books, free software, etc. Sometimes, people send me free things to review. I make no promises to say something positive about the product or item. I will always be honest and may even say something negative about it if the product isn’t any good. Sometimes, I give the free stuff away, and sometimes I hang on to it. I do not write paid reviews of any kind. Any review that I write is my actual opinion of the product. It is very likely however that the links from the review will pay me if you buy the product after you click on them. For instance, whenever I write a book review, I include the Amazon links to buy the book. I get a percentage of the sale if you purchase the book through Amazon after clicking on the link.

2. Direct Advertisements. Advertisers, Google Adsense, and the banners on the blog are direct advertisers. Some companies, although not many, pay me to display their advertisements on the side of the blog.

3. Affiliate Marketing. Affiliate marketing is where the majority of bloggers, including me, make their income. They write about a product or service who in turn pays them a flat fee or percentage of each sale they generate. It is safe to say that if there is a link on this site going to a place where you can buy something, it is an affiliate link and I am going to make a small amount money if you choose purchase the product. I appreciate the support.
