Disclosure Policy and Disclaimer Information in the wild

It is very important that you have two things on your blog to help protect you from being sued and I’m sure you don’t want that to happen. Those two crucial elements of your blog would be the Disclosure Policy and the Disclaimer Information.

What is a Disclosure Policy?

Very simply put, a Disclosure Policy “discloses, reveals, imparts, makes known or divulges ” that you receive compensation/financial gain or don’t receive compensation/financial gain for products and/or services that you recommend or review.

To create your free Disclosure Policy without causing your brain to ache, go to Disclosure.org. The site will request a little information to identify your blog intentions and then generate the policy for you without any pain.

After it is created, download/upload it to your blog and create a link on the home page leading to it.

You can find my Disclosure Policy link at the bottom of my home page.

What is Disclaimer Information?

Since I am not licensed to offer rheumatological, dermatological, gerontological, gynecological, hematological, cardiovascular, psychological, dental, automotive, ornamental horticulture, juris doctorate, pharmacological or any other topic you can dream up in your mind, it is important for me to tell my readers that I am not an authority on anything other than being myself!

Since I am not the only person that writes on my blog, I also need to have a statement that does not hold me responsible for the comments left by my father, mother, sister, brother, daughter, son, grandfather, grandmother, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, cousin, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, ex-husband, best friend, pastor, neighbor, attorney, physician, gynecologist, photographer, accountant, beautician, massage therapist, opthamologist or anyone else that leaves me their words of wisdom.

A disclaimer denies, disowns, repudiates and renounces any claim to or connection with the comments of others plus more.

To create your free Disclaimer simply go to PriorityDigital.com. The site will request a little information to identify your blog intentions and then generate the policy for you without any hassle.

After it is created, download/upload it to your blog and create a link on the home page leading to it.

You can find my Disclaimer link at the bottom of my home page.

The 4 Things You Need On Your Blog

To recount, there are four things you need in place on your blog to protect yourself legally. Make sure you take the time to implement them and avoid being sued for something you do unintentionally. We all know that ignorance is not an excuse for breaking a law.

1. Copyright

2. Privacy Policy

3. Disclosure Policy

4. Disclaimer Information

Woo Us To Your Blog

The last “Woo Us To Your Blog” post was about How To Add A Signature To A Blog Post so that you can add a little personalized flair to the end of each post. Do you remember the information and have you added one yet?

As always, attached is the weekly Linky to enter either the main URL to your site or add each post you publish throughout the week. You don’t have to do anything special, just drop your link in and get a little extra exposure to your site. If you have a product you want me to review, please send me an email too.

Until next week’s wooing post, have fun creating all that legal jargon!
