COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

By clicking on some of our product links, you will be supporting our efforts in celebrating American manufacturing!
We highly recommend that retailers selling made in USA products work with VigLinks to create an affiliate program. We also recommend VigLinks as the easiest way for sites like ours to support themselves while promoting American-made products. Click the VigLink badge below for more information.

- The company must be headquartered in the USA;
- The products must be Made in the USA;
- And finally, the company and products must be of interest to our readers. However, the inclusion of such advertising does not necessarily equal to an endorsement or recommendation of that product.
[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”AFFILIATE RELATIONSHIPS:” custom_use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_id=”1480273465941-d0223934-cc34″ use_custom_heading=”true”]The Made in America Movement has carefully selected a number of trusted retailers, manufacturers, and brands, and have developed affiliate relationships with them. This was done with you, the reader, in mind. Affiliate relationships allow us to make it easier to bring you American-made products. These relationships will also allow us to receive a small commission which helps to support our efforts in our mission to create awareness of the importance of purchasing American-made products. When our readers click on affiliate links or banners and make a purchase, the product will cost the same. Affiliate relationships will always be announced and disclosed on our site because sometimes individual links and/or banners may not always be identified as affiliate links. Our recommendations and opinions are never influenced by our affiliate relationships.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”GUEST POSTS:” custom_use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_id=”1480269983385-8d903495-cc86″ use_custom_heading=”true”]The Made in America Movement happily accepts guest post submissions from select sources.

We will always disclose within the post if the product was provided to us for a review.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”SPONSORED POSTS:” custom_use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_id=”1480269983427-8cf88d78-0b53″ use_custom_heading=”true”]The Made in America Movement will, from time to time, accept sponsored posts.
