- A "material connection" is one that is not reasonably expected by the audience or not readily apparent from the context of the communication that may affect the weight or credibility a reasonable consumer would give to the communications or messages made by the Endorser.
- Such connections may be found in the form of:
- Receiving consideration (i.e. monetary compensation, including fees or commissions; gift cards; event access; prizes; free or discounted products or services) provided by Craye Label (or any of its agents acting on its behalf) to the Endorser;
- A relationship between Craye Label and the Endorser (such as employment or contractual relationships); or
- Potential consideration gained through a promotion, contest, or sweepstakes for which participation is conditioned upon an Endorsement.
- Some examples of adequate material connection disclosures may be as follows:
- I received [product] from Craye Label as a gift;
- [Thanks to][Courtesy of] Craye Label, I was given [product];
- Craye Label sent me [product] to try;
- This post is a paid advertisement for Craye Label;
- I am an employee (if applies) of Craye Label; or
- Tagging an Endorsement on any Platform with a hashtag that discloses the material connection of the Endorsement to Craye Label or a specific promotion or contest; possible acceptable examples may include #CrayeLabel, #CL oContest, etc.
- The above are only examples of disclosures which may be adequate. Variations of those examples may also be adequate depending on the context. The key is to disclose that there is a relationship between Craye Label and the Endorser which a reasonable consumer reading the Endorsement may not have realized (e.g. an employment relationship, a paid advertiser relationship, or related to a promotion or contest advertised by Craye Label).
- Disclosures need to be made in a clear and conspicuous manner. This generally means the disclosure should occur in close proximity to where the Endorsement was made and in a similar size, font and color.
