    Hello, I have a website that is dedicated to reviewing amazon products and I use my affiliate links when reviewing those products. Am I required to say that I use affiliate links in every single one of my reviews? Or can I just state that somewhere on my website? Thank you.

    Legally, it depends on what country you are from. The US has pretty strict law and normally requires you to disclose affiliate links, but Australia for example has pretty relaxed laws and don't require you to do anything.

    It would be something like this:

    "YourSiteName" is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon (.com, .co.uk, .ca etc) and any other website that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
    You can use this in the footer section or a widget also (but should be visible on every page) or you can also create a dedicated page like privacy policy.

    it depends where you are ... in Europe you also have to say that amazon uses cookies and that you can block them.

    Yes, you can definitely use it in the about section of a website.
