Federal Trade Commission (FTC) disclosures and affiliate information

The owners and editors of Fityn.com reserve the right to use affiliate programs to generate income needed to keep Fityn free, easy to use, and with as little clutter as possible.

As stated in the first paragraph of this disclosure policy, there are no sponsored editorial posts on the fityn.com website. More specifically, fityn.com does not take money to review a product, run a promotion, or have a giveaway. With free samples, we either send them back or donate them to a charity. We value independent and unbiased reporting, while at the same time realizing if an affiliate program is able to generate income, it is a simple and smart decision to use it.

As part of Fityn business model (as well as the model for an untold number of other websites) , Fityn belongs to voluntary affiliate programs. These services let retailers and brands track where clicks to their websites are coming from. A commission (sometimes dollars, usually cents, sometimes a portion of a cent) can be paid to the referring website (Fityn) when a person views an advertisement or buys a product.

Rather than list all the programs Fityn belongs to, assume every link that points to a retailer has some type of affiliate agreement. At least, that is a goal. Some sites we have or are working to have an agreement with are Amazon, Google Affiliates, eBay, Click Junction, LinkShare, and ShareASale. Here are some specific brands that we have or are working to have an affiliate agreement with: Allen Edmonds, Nordstrom, Macy’s, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, Indochino, Lands’ End. These lists are not exhaustive. There are more, and they change as sites change their agreements.

Any relationship we have with a brand, whether Fityn is an affiliate or not, does not influence what we write about or how we write about something. Can you expect bad reviews on products where we have an affiliate relationship with the seller or manufacturer? Of course. Can you expect great reviews when something goes beyond impressive when we try it? Absolutely. Put simply, if something works as stated, we will tell you that. If it doesn’t work, we tell you that, too.

If you want more information, contact us at fityncom@gmail.com.

That’s about it. Be honest. Work hard. Treat the customer like you want to be treated. Everything else should take care of itself.
