    Do you need to put a disclaimer on a niche review website promoting Amazon products?

    I have seen a number of sites where the footer states that the site is purely a review site and any monies made as by means of commission - this leads me to believe there may be a T&C somewhere that this has to be put in.

    I am doing ok at the moment with a few referrals but am concerned if I should be putting this disclaimer in, I am likely to be pulled/banned.

    I have had a letter from Apple's lawyers saying I am infringing on their copyright by using their pictures and trademarked words. All of the text and pictures were grabbed directly from Amazon, so I sent them a very kind email back saying I do not make any text/photos myself, and it is purely a portal site through to Amazon for the buyers convenience. They replyed back saying if I put it all into a legal document available on the site (now my disclaimer) they wouldn't have a problem with me keeping the site up.

    Which people are you worried about? So long as you don't use any sneaky techniques to get extra referals, Amazon won't care.

    It does give the site a more professional feel though I believe, as when I visit a website I wonder "what's in it for the owner".

    Let me know if you need some help, I've got a few Amazon based sites doing very well.
