Advertising Policy

Hello! At DFC, we believe that honesty is the best policy. Like most digital media companies, we have financial relationships with various affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, and other third parties (collectively “Partners”) whose products, services, and messaging are described in, or appear in, our website, our newsletters, and our social media (collectively “Properties”). We provide these Disclosures to you because we believe in transparency, and we strive to comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsement and Testimonials in Advertising, which are codified at 16 C.F.R. Part 255.

DFC receives monetary and other forms of compensation from Partners for various advertising, sponsorships (such as sponsored posts or sponsored stories within our editorial content), insertion orders, commercial messaging, and other promotional campaigns that we feature on our Properties. If you ultimately decide to purchase a product or service mentioned on our Properties, we may receive additional compensation from a Partner in connection with that purchase. We are an Amazon Associate, so we receive compensation from Amazon links in our Properties. And, in cases of third-party ads posted on our Properties, we will generally receive some compensation from the third-party advertiser even if you do not purchase anything.

Whenever we have a Partner relationship, we do our best to clearly and conspicuously disclose it adjacent to, or within the, content. We will use text including, but not limited to, “In partnership with”, “Sponsored By”, or even  “This is a sponsored/affiliate link.”

Please note that the opinions presented in our newsletters and on this site are those of the DFC team. Even though we receive compensation from partners, we always give our honest, truthful opinions and experiences to provide our readers with accurate content — and if you disagree, please let us know!
