Quick question, when we put a link on our website to another site are we required to provide a disclosure (pop-up) that indicates to the customer that they are now leaving our bank's website and going to another? If so, where can I find out where it says this is needed. Thanks in advance!!

You should check out the interagency guidance "Weblinking: Identifying Risks and Risk Management Techniques." You can find it as an attachment to FIL-30-2003.

OCC Bulletin 2003-15 discusses this. Even if you're not OCC regulated, this information was also issued by the FDIC, NCUA and OTS (not sure why the FRB wasn't part of it).

You may want to scroll down to page 8 and read the section on "Disclaimers" first.

It isn't a requirement, but the speed bump is a best practice. It need not be a pop-up though as many people block those. Some sites group/segregate and even color code internal links from external ones. Those externals are denoted as being away from your site and your control.
