Review Disclaimers & Privacy Policies


If you operate a website (or multiple sites) I think the new year is a good time to review your website disclaimer and privacy policy to make sure they are both up to date and accurate. I did this a few days ago, and there were very few changes to either, but it’s a smart thing to do for all of your websites.

If you’re a commenter or reader (especially if it’s on a frequent basis), I recommend you review my blog’s disclaimer / terms of service and the privacy policy. I wouldn’t call them exciting reads, but you should be aware of them when you visit. You probably should do the same on other sites to see what their policies are as well.

I also recommend you check out a previous article I wrote about conflicts of interest. I am an active buyer and seller in the domain industry, and I am far more of an industry participant than an observer. As a result, I have plenty of potential conflicts of interest when it comes to articles I write and commentary I provide on my blog and elsewhere. I would say a very large percentage of articles I write are about people I know or companies I’ve done business with in the past or have a relationship with today.

I still do not accept sponsored articles, and I have very few affiliate links throughout the site. I do not expect this to change now or in the future. In fact, all of the banners you see on the site are paid placements and not affiliate banners.

I don’t believe there are any surprises, but I do think it’s something you should be aware of and knowledgable about to make your reading of my blog
