How to Draft an eBook Disclaimer

Here are some free templates that you can use as building blocks to incorporate into your own eBook disclaimer. An ebook disclaimer is a statement that sets out the limitations of liability for the content of an ebook.  This is important because it protects you from legal action in the event that your ebook contains inaccurate or misleading information.  While it is not required by law to have a disclaimer, it is always advisable to include one.

 What should be included in an ebook disclaimer?

 An ebook disclaimer should include a statement about the accuracy of the information contained in the ebook.  It should also include a statement about your liability if the reader uses the information in the ebook to their detriment.  For example, if you include financial advice in your ebook and the reader suffers financial losses as a result of following your advice, you could be held liable.

 An ebook disclaimer should also make it clear that the reader is responsible for their own actions.  This means that if they use the information in your ebook to do anything illegal, you cannot be held liable.  You may also want to state that your ebook does not constitute professional advice (if this is applicable).
