These disclosures are meant to clarify our relationship with third parties whom we may feature on our website and to provide disclosures related to FTC 16 CFR, Part 255. Here at EssentialItems.com (hereafter “Essential Items”), our main goal is to bring Essential items that are needed by everyday consumers, by providing unbiased information and links to other resources, including products or services provided by third parties (hereafter “Affiliates”).
Affiliates may pay us a fee or otherwise compensate us in exchange for inclusion on our website. We believe in providing you with unbiased, high-quality information and resources meant to help you with your goals. To that end, we strive to only engage with Affiliates whose content, products, or services align with our objectives. We are very selective about the Affiliates who we include on our website and believe in putting our users’ needs above our own financial gain.
EssentialItems.com may work with companies and other retailers, vendors, or service providers in the following ways:
- We may have cost-per-click, affiliate fees, and/or sponsorship arrangements with various brands, retailers, vendors, or service providers. In no uncertain terms, this compensation has no influence on the product reviews and guides we publish.
- We may also receive complimentary products from vendors for testing purposes such that we are confident including references to them on our website.
- We may include sponsored content on our website. If we’re paid to post such content, we’ll always clearly mark this content as sponsored. We’ll also clearly label any sponsored content we email to subscribers of our mailing list.
Furthermore, we’ll always clearly disclose any joint ownership or other financial relationship we may have with any Affiliates.
