Influencer Disclosure Badge

If you are hosting a site or blog we suggest that you place a text link marked “Disclosure Policy” for your readers on the side or bottom bar of your blog in an area that can be easily located by your readers. This link should link to your disclosure policy on a separate page of your blog/site in a fashion similar to a privacy policy link.
