How to Write a Legal Disclaimer for Your Business

You will need a disclaimer if you provide goods or services, but the requirements of the disclaimer will depend on what you provide. Goods may be tangible (like a hammer) or intangible (like information). You can usually lump "goods and services" together in your disclaimer.



Identify the goods or services you provide.

You will need a disclaimer if you provide goods or services, but the requirements of the disclaimer will depend on what you provide. Goods may be tangible (like a hammer) or intangible (like information). You can usually lump "goods and services" together in your disclaimer.

Think about the liability you might be subjected to.

Whenever you sell goods or services, you open yourself up to legal liability. A person may be injured by your product, or they may want a refund because the product does not work as advertised. If your business offers an opportunity to participate in an activity or to use equipment, such as a tour group or a gym, you will definitely want a disclaimer to avoid being held liable in the case of injury. You can find a sample liability disclaimer

Identify the rights you want to protect.

Understand the limitations of legal disclaimers.

Before drafting, you should be aware that a legal disclaimer cannot completely insulate you from liability. For example, you may try to disclaim liability for any injuries caused by your negligence, but that disclaimer will often be legally ineffective.

Limit liability for tangible goods.

Legal disclaimers should always be written with possible lawsuits in mind. This will allow you to consider the discrete terms of your disclaimer. In your disclaimer, cover any and all liabilities for the product or service that you provide.__

Limit liability for intangible property.

If you provide an intangible good, such as information, then you will want to limit your liability for causing offense or damage. However, in general, you cannot limit your liability if you willfully and intentionally provide false statements of fact. (Exceptions may be made in the case of parody and satire.)__

Limit liability for services.

Protect your rights.

Just as you want to limit your potential exposure to lawsuits, you want to protect your rights in your product and warn others against infringement.__

Limit your responsibility for third parties.

This is especially important if your business displays advertising, uses outside vendors, or has a website or social media page that is open to public comment.__

Include <a href="/Make-Terms-and-Conditions-and-Privacy-Policies-for-a-Business" title="Make Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies for a Business">terms and conditions and a privacy statement</a>.

Terms and conditions spell out the rights and responsibilities of you, the business, and your customer. Your disclaimer can then exempt you from responsibility if the customer does not abide by the terms and conditions. A privacy policy describes how your business will gather and use customer information. You can find a sample template for a privacy policy at the Better Business Bureau website

Include your contact information.

Provide as many different ways of contacting you as possible, unless you feel uncomfortable providing personal information. At a minimum, you should provide an email address.__

Make customers aware of your disclaimer.

You should place the disclaimer in a place where it will be visible to the public. If you are using a risk disclaimer, then it must be highly visible. Use boldface so that it is conspicuous.
