I want to screenshot parts of websites for reviews.

I agree with Trish! I would Google the information first. I have seen bloggers get sued for images that weren't theirs and that can be pretty pricey. On top of that, the bloggers that were sued said it was scary. One article a lady was sued $7500 for one image so, I would be very careful when it comes to screenshots.

One thing I know for sure I wouldn't do is screenshot their logo. I have used screenshots before, but, then again, I turned around and removed most of them when I came across the bloggers that were sued.

Until I find out what is right or wrong, I tread lightly.

Hey Ron,

As for any copyright laws, please always Google search to see if you can find an answer, and if you cannot, then contact a lawyer as it is always best to be safer than sorry.

It all depends on what you want to screen prints of which is why it is best to check, check and double check. Law suits can be very pricey if you screen print the wrong item(s).

Hope you find this helpful.

Where does one find affiliate rules for Amazon?

If you filled out the form and gave your info. (website included) you may still be in "pending". If you email them, they're good about getting back with you.

Jessica - here's the link:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/help/operating/agreement

do you mean the GDPR or an ordinary disclosure/disclaimer?

both

both what, you are not being very clear?

Information about GDPR and disclosure/disclaimer

This web page will give you all the info on disclaimers and you can download a plugin for the GDPR.

https://www.termsfeed.com/blog/disclaimer-examples/

This is the download page for the Cookie law that is the GDPR

https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-cookie-law/

Your blogsite will definitely need to address GDPR, also regular disclosure of affiliate links. If you are in the health field for you site, you need a medical disclosure too. Amazon also has its own disclosure requirement.

Thx

happy to point you in the right direction

They won't let me comment anymore. The last time I signed up was three years ago. I didn't have a grasp on how to do better commenting.

Hi Ron, I see that you are just reconnecting, with WA after some absence, it was a different season way back then when you joined, if you were banned then I would get in contact with the platform.

https://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/contact/

Just chose general inquiry from the drop-down menu.

If it as just happened then still get in contact, we can all make mistakes.

Ok thx

Plenty of training on how to write better comments. LynnH (LynneH?) Has training check it out. Then contact support get reinstated.

Support is only for technical issues with websites hosted here. Ron needs to contact Kyle or Carson or use the contact form at
