Content created by our Affiliates that promote Benji may be subject to review and oversight from several regulatory bodies, including Ad Standards, the Competition Bureau, the Investment Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Each of these bodies has its own regulatory requirements and guidelines, and we strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with them. In addition, all our Affiliates are required to follow our Affiliate Guidelines (below).
Don’t make claims that are false or misleading
- What if the claim is LITERALLY true? Something that is literally true but omits material information, or something that is technically true but is accompanied by a visual that creates a misleading general impression, may be considered misleading.
- For example, if you claim that all Benji users can start finding tax write-offs for free that is technically true, but could be considered misleading because we ask users to upgrade once they find at least $1,000 in tax write-offs.
- We think our app is a pretty good deal for self-employed individuals, so we encourage you to be transparent about our plans when talking about Benji.
- Make sure that you have confirmed any facts about Benji
- For example, Benji is not tax preparation software, so we don’t call it one.
Tell followers you’re a part of our Affiliate Program and that your opinions are your own
- Any partnership relationship, compensation, benefits, and incentives, whether it is monetary or not, will need to be disclosed in a clear and upfront manner on ALL content.
- When in doubt, spell it out—blanket disclosure somewhere on your page/site is not enough.
- When writing about Benji please include the following language prominently either at the beginning or end of your piece:
- Any opinions expressed in this content are solely my own and not the views or opinions of Benji. I may receive a commission if you click on referral links in this piece and upgrade to a paid Benji plan.
Only share an opinion if it’s genuine
- We hope that you love our app, but please make sure that anything you tell your followers about Benji is your genuinely held opinion.
Avoid conduct that would reasonably be expected to reflect poorly on Benji and/or its Affiliate Program
- We periodically audit content posted by participants in our Affiliate Program. Failure to follow the Affiliate Guidelines may result in your removal from our Affiliate Program.
