This affiliate disclosure details affiliate relationships that VisitMaine.Net has with other companies and products.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about all links, posts, photos and other material on this website:
Any/all of the links on this website are affiliate links of which VisitMaine.Net receives a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you.
VisitMaine.Net 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.com. Pages on this site may include affiliate links to Amazon and its affiliate sites on which the owner of this website will make a referral commission.
What is an Affiliate Link?
Many (but not all) of the links on VisitMaine.Net are affiliate links. This means that a special tracking code is used and that we may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps us to maintain this website and to support our small dedicated team.
In some cases, we may also use a link and provide a discount code for an item. In these cases, we may still earn an affiliate commission and the price may actually be LESS for you by using this link or tracking code.
Links to other companies like Etsy and others are also affiliate company links.
Again, for simplicity, assume that any link on VisitMaine.Net is an affiliate link and that we may/will make a commission if you purchase through these links (though the price remains the same for you).
If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support the VisitMaine.Net mission clicking on these links are very helpful to help us continue the mission of the site.
When Do I Use Affiliate Links?
If we post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that we use, support and would recommend without an affiliate link. If we accept any free products or services we disclose that affiliation with that company in the content clearly so you’re aware of it.
Our first priority is always providing resources to help you celebrate , and will only ever link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit within this purpose.
