Why do affiliate disclose affiliate links?

Hi everyone - I was curious about this - Almost always now, when I receive an email about an offer, or I read a post, it will contain the statement - "this message (or post) contains affiliate links". Is there a legal requirement to add that ? Or is this just an affiliate being honest/coming clean ?

Affiliates are required by law to inform their readers that the links on their site are affiliate links. This is a way to inform readers that the owner of the site is going to get a commission from the sale of a product.

This is particularly important on product review sites.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
