That is, on your site, you must state the limitations of your liability for the use of your website and its associated content. With this, you must also disclose your relationship with any external links you have included in your content. A website disclaimer is important so that you are not held liable for any damages a user may suffer upon navigating your website.

In addition, you must inform users of your website’s privacy policies. More specifically, you must disclose what data you collect and for what reason, along with disclosing how you store and protect it.

Similarly, you must informer users of your website’s work-for-hire agreements. That is, if there is work on your site that belongs to a third party, you must reference this. Notably, work created by your employee as part of their job is subject to copyright owned by you.
