This week’s post is a guest article by Jim Chiodo at DisclaimerTemplate.com.
It’s a totally un-sexy part of your marketing, but really important. I like Jim’s service because he makes it easy and affordable.
Privacy policies, disclaimers and disclosures are required by law to be displayed on your website or blog in a “clear and conspicuous” place that is obvious to visitors and customers. (See our FREE Legal Guide for instructions on how to post your policies)
Free Privacy Policies Can Be Expensive
Is Your Website Terms And Conditions Protecting You?
It should explain what your business is, what you are responsible for, and, more importantly, what you are not responsible for. This last detail is important if the information on your site is ever misused. Within a website’s terms and conditions policy, you can create a significant amount of control over what occurs on your website or blog, and limit your responsibility.
Disclaimers; Are You Using Them Properly?
A disclaimer is a written statement that does something significant – it transfers responsibility from one party to another. Ideally, to transfer responsibility from you, the online operator to you visitors, customers or members. It is important that disclaimers are drafted properly to contain as many contingencies as possible, to be interpreted in favor of the website or blog operator.
The days of the Internet Wild West are gone forever. New laws and regulations are being passed every year. Website and blog operators are playing a risky game when receiving visitors on their site without attorney-drafted privacy policies, terms and conditions and disclaimers.
