Affiliate Marketing Training – Policies, Disclaimers And Agreements

As an affiliate marketer you need to have certain documents and disclaimers visible on your site.

Not only does it protect you and your business, but these documents or disclaimers are required by the FTC.

Personally I have links to my disclaimers, policies and agreements in the sidebar of my site. But you can place them where ever you like just as long as they are visable and easily accessed by anyone that visits your site.

Below you’ll find what documents you should have on your site.

1) Privacy Policy

Your privacy policy tells people how you collect their personal information as well as clearly stating that you will not use their information for any other purposes.

And that you will NOT sell, share or give any of their information to anyone at any time.

2) Affiliate Disclaimer

The FTC requires that you have this disclaimer clearly visible on your site. So not only should you have a link to the full disclaimer page, but it’s not a bad idea to have a small disclaimer on every single page of your site.

You’ll notice if you scroll to the bottom of my site I have a short affiliate earnings disclaimer.

Basically you are telling people if they click one of your affiliate links that you will receive a commission or credit of some kind from the affiliate merchant if they end up purchasing a product through your affiliate link.

3) Website Agreement

The main reason you want to have a website agreement (disclaimer) is for the purpose of limiting the liabilities that may arise from the website.

And this agreement can and usually includes who the owner of the site is, what liability is or is not accepted by the site owner and the sites policies on third party links.

To find samples and even templates you can follow for all of these documents and agreements simply do a search in Google for the particular document you’re looking for.

4) Earnings Disclaimer

If you represent a company that gives people the opportunity to create an income, such a Internet Marketing or Network Marketing.

You must have a disclaimer that clearly states that you in no way are promising that they will earn a certain or even an average amount of income.

And the only way this disclaimer will protect you is if you don’t make any promises to people of money that can be earned.
