Depending on the nature of your business and the information you share on your website, you may need one or more of these types of disclaimer:

Affiliate Disclaimer

An affiliate disclaimer lets your website users know you may earn affiliate commissions from products you recommend. If you have affiliate links in any part of your website, the 2009 Federal Trade Commission (FTC) 2009 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising mandates that you inform your site visitors.

A good example of this type of disclaimer is the Amazon affiliate disclosure, which is required by the Amazon Associates program, one of the most popular affiliate programs on the internet.

Testimonial Disclaimer

A testimonial disclaimer is a statement that informs readers that the experience they’ll have when using your products or services may differ from what they see in your testimonials or reviews. See our testimonial disclaimer examples if you’re unsure what kinds of testimonials need to be disclosed.

Legal Disclaimers

If you run a legal website, you may need to include some important legal disclaimers to comply with various professional rules and ethics and protect yourself from liabilities or misconceptions.
