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. You must let visitors know if you use tracking mechanisms that display ads for your products or services as they move around the Internet to other sites, and how you respond to “Do not track” signals. You must also communicate whether visitors have choices about sharing their information, and whom they should contact with questions about your privacy policies and practices.
Terms and conditions
This is the guidebook that tells your website visitors how they can use your site. You own the copyrights to all the awesome photos, text, videos, and other content that you’ve created and posted on your website. Your terms and conditions should tell visitors exactly what they can do with your content (share it!), and can’t do (sell or copy it to compete with you). If you allow users to comment or post on your website, or operate a members-only site, you can also set the rules for users participating there.
Have you cobbled together these documents from other people’s websites, but aren’t sure if you’re really protected? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
