Every business website needs these documents in place (Legal Road Map® Podcast S1E3)

Every business website needs these documents in place (Legal Road Map® Podcast S1E3)

NOTE - NEW PRIVACY RULES (EU GDPR) went into effect MAY 25, 2018. Check out episodes 38, 39, and 40 for updated information on privacy policies. This Episode 3 was published in 2016 and does not address the new rules.   

Wonder what those “privacy policies” or “terms and conditions” that you see on websites actually are? Find out about these and other documents and terms your website must have - terms of use, disclaimers, and disclosures.

Episode highlights:

  • Terms and conditions: the rules of the road for your website and how you protect your copyrights and trademarks
  • Privacy policy: required by law!
  • Terms of use: a contract with your e-course or digital product purchasers
  • Disclaimers: consider for health, financial, or legal information
  • Disclosures: required by the FTC if you receive money or products, and for affiliate links

KEY TAKEAWAY: If you collect any personal information through your website (even just an e-mail address through an opt-in or contact form), you are required by law to post a policy on your website telling your visitors what you will do with this information, such as whether you sell it to third parties or share it with your advertisers or partners.

Sign up below for a list of all the legal documents, notices, and disclaimers you may need to post on your website, and swipe copy you can use to create your own (plus be the first to know when new episodes are live).

This podcast is information not legal advice specific to your situation.
