Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Termly’s Legal Experts

Why do you need a disclaimer?

You need a disclaimer because the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires websites to disclose affiliate relationships and sponsored content. If you receive compensation for linking to or mentioning certain products, the FTC requires you to post affiliate disclaimers on pages where sponsored products or links appear.

Additionally, you may want a disclaimer on your site if you offer products, advice, or content related to certain fields (e.g., legal, medical, health), because having one can help support your case in the event that legal action is brought against your site.

Related Questions

Write a disclaimer specific to your content.

Use a disclaimer template to address the specific liabilities of your website’s content. For example, if your site contains health and wellness information, your disclaimer should state that your content is not meant as medical advice.
