Is there a need to notify the user when redirecting from one website to other website (of the same brand (maybe a mother site)) ?
For a clearer image
My company has a mother site (lets say site A) and a product sub-site (lets say site B) and it has many such products. While the terms and contact page remains the same for all the products on all sites A, B etc. So if a change has to be made on any particular page, it needs to reflect on the pages of all the products sub sites B, C etc. Hence the solution was to redirect the user to the page on site A.
My question is should we notify the user about being redirected and break the sense of a flow for him, or should we create separate pages (terms and contact us) for all product sites and change all of them if there is a change in the page?
PS: i have seen the redirection notice on many sites, but as this is basically the same company, is it necessary to notify or is this approach not advisable ?
