  3. When/where to display the disclaimerMost sites have a link at the bottom of their website saying, “Link Disclaimer,” “Third Party Website Disclaimer,” “Third Party Link Disclaimer,” or some similar variation thereof. Sites using a very brief disclaimer occasionally insert the disclaimer itself at the bottom of the website instead of linking to it. Many sites merely include this disclaimer in their “Terms of Use,” which are normally linked at the bottom of a website. Finally, a few websites utilize a form of splash page wherein the disclaimer pops up whenever a user actually clicks a link to leave the site.
