On October 5, 2009, the FTC announced that starting December 1, 2009 it will enforce new rules regarding the disclosure of any transaction of free goods, free services, or money between bloggers and companies. These new rules are aimed at protecting consumers, like you, from knowing whether you’re receiving an independent recommendation or insight from someone who might have a different experience from yourself.
We have third party bloggers contribute on the Intuit® News Central blog because we believe it provides richer content and more diverse opinions. Many of our third party contributors are able to provide content with a different view than Intuit has, which will lead to more comprehensive coverage of industry news and trends. In some cases, we will provide these contributors free goods, services, and compensation for the time and energy they have spent.
We encourage our third party bloggers to openly voice their opinions and we also ask that there’s full disclosure on all online channels regarding any relationship with Intuit News Central and Intuit.
Also, we’ll keep an updated list below of all non-Intuit employees who contribute to the site and might receive free goods, services, or monetary compensation.
