Earnings Disclaimer >>>?

3 replies
Do you have to have an earnings disclaimer on the bottom of a IM ClickBank product sales page? I see a few websites that don't have any disclaimers.

For example: gsniper2 [DOT] com

If you do have to have a disclaimer, must it say "Earnings" in front of it? This is what the links on the bottom of my site look like atm..

Copyright -Terms & Conditions - Disclaimer - Privacy Policy

Am I missing anything? :confused:

    The short answer is, no, you don't have to have "Earnings" Disclaimer as a link at the foot of your web page. What you have is fine.

    However, it depends upon what your product is and more importantly, what your Disclaimer statement actually says.

    If you are selling a product that claims to enable the purchaser to make x amount of money in x amount of time (worse, still, guarantees results), then your disclaimer should point out that whilst the results are achievable, they don't necessarily mean that that all or any purchaser will achieve the same results for manifold reasons (the purchaser's skills and effort or lack thereof).

    Take a look at sites that sell similar products to those you are offering and see what their disclaimer says and adapt yours accordingly. That said, I'd invest a few dollars on getting a qualified expert draw up a legal document for you so that you don't leave yourself wide open to problems. It's never a good idea to copy someone else's Disclaimer statement because their product, claim and terms may not be the same as yours.

    Incidentally, you are also supposed to have a "Contact Us" link at the foot of your site so that customers may reach you in case of need.

    i am not a lawyer or qualified to give legal advice, but this is not correct according to the ftc.

    if you are making income claims you need to read this its from the ftc website which makes the rules on these things. you should also note that there are many other laws that many marketers dont follow. these rules are your responsibility to know and follow in your business.

    FTC Publishes Final Guides Governing Endorsements, Testimonials

    "Under the revised Guides, advertisements that feature a consumer and convey his or her experience with a product or service as typical when that is not the case will be required to clearly disclose the results that consumers can generally expect. In contrast to the 1980 version of the Guides – which allowed advertisers to describe unusual results in a testimonial as long as they included a disclaimer such as “results not typical” – the revised Guides no longer contain this safe harbor."

    another note is to never take advice on legal stuff from a forum or by simply just assuming other sites are following the laws of the land. that is a recipe for trouble.
