Disclaimers to protect you from unexpected liabilities unique to the value you are providing to your community. A disclaimer is a notice given to your community in an effort to limit your liability. Now that might seem disingenuous and often we want to shy away from disclaimers out of fear that they might be off putting. However, let’s reframe that belief, your disclaimer is telling your community that they are responsible for the actions they take. It is permission to implement the value that resonates with them in their own manner and disregard what may not be for them without shame.
This is a list of easily customizable disclaimers, for you to include on your website, said on podcast, printed in any materials, added to any existing agreements…well anywhere.
