For most businesses, designing and launching a website is an exciting prospect.

Selecting imagery, coming up with slogans, and preparing to show off your digital storefront is a big milestone for businesses of all shapes and sizes!

Launching a website, however, is not without its less exciting bits. There are several steps and components that must be adhered to, but which can often feel like a bit of a chore — including your Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, and other legal scripts.

In this post, we'll cover the importance of these documents, and explore a product that can help to simplify the entire process for you and your business.

Do you need a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service?

In short, yes.

While it might seem trivial, your Privacy Policy and Terms of Service agreements are crucial to your website in more ways than one.

Here's why you don't want to skip the implementation of a Privacy Policy and Terms of Service agreement on your website…

Why you need a Privacy Policy

The primary reason to make sure you have a privacy policy on your website or online service is that it's legally required in most countries. Here are just seven policies from around the world that state that business websites must include a privacy policy:

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • UK Data Protection Act 2018
  • California Online Privacy and Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA)
  • California Privacy Protection Act (CCPA)
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
  • Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act (DOPPA)
  • Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A

These laws exist because, as a digital service or website, you inevitably collect and use data on your visitors, customers, and clients. To protect those individuals, you are required to post and adhere to a privacy policy that anyone visiting your website can easily find.

Neglecting these guidelines and others can lead to lawsuits, which, of course, no one wants to deal with.

Why you need a Terms of Service

While a privacy policy outlines how you collect and store customers’ data, your Terms of Service allows your customers and visitors to read and understand the rules and policies they are agreeing to when they visit your website.

A Terms of Service generally isn't required by law, though they are legally binding once implemented.

This is important, as it can protect you and your visitors in the event of a legal dispute. For instance, if someone engages in a questionable business dealing on your website, and you have no rule that prevents that, then it can be difficult to pursue the matter in court.

A Terms of Service can also act as an FAQ. It gives you the chance to answer questions about your service, and give your visitors greater peace of mind about the business they're engaging with.

The Privacy & Terms Management package

Because documents like privacy policies and ToS agreements are so commonplace, it’s easy to underestimate how much work goes into creating one.

But many business owners become stuck when they begin to write their own.

After all, where do you start? What are you allowed to put into the agreement, and what are you legally required to put into it? What kind of language should you use, and where should you place it on your website?

To help you overcome these hurdles in the easiest way possible, take a look at our Privacy & Terms Management package for your website.

It's a simple guided service that you can use to automatically generate a privacy policy and ToS for your business — giving you more time to focus on other areas of your business, and greater peace of mind.

Alongside generating a personalized privacy policy and ToS, it can be used to create other legal documents — and update these documents automatically to reflect regulation changes.

The Privacy & Terms Management product features

The Privacy & Terms Management product is packed with all of the features a site manager needs to maintain compliance, and offer clear guidelines and rules to its visitors.

Below are the key features that make this product an excellent solution for businesses of all types:

Privacy Policy generator

Arguably the most important feature of this product is the Privacy Policy generator. As the name implies, this feature allows you to generate a personalized privacy policy for your business website.

Included in every privacy policy is a complete set of clauses and compliance standards. These policies are written and reviewed by authenticated attorneys, so you can rest easy knowing that you have the proper documentation in place.

Each privacy policy also includes guidelines for:

  • Cookies
  • Analytics
  • Liability
  • Fines

Compliance with the most common regulations

As mentioned earlier, privacy policies are mandated by various legislative bodies around the world. Depending on where you are (and which areas your website services) you may be subject to multiple governing privacy policy guidelines.

To simplify the process of adhering to these guidelines, each of the privacy policies created by the Privacy & Terms Management generator includes compliance with CCPA, GDPR, CalOPPA, Nevada 603a, and more. This makes it a one-stop, comprehensive solution for every website owner and online business.

Terms and Conditions generator

The Privacy & Terms Management product also includes a Terms and Conditions generator.

This makes it easy to set custom rules in place for things like:

  • Copyright
  • Linking to other websites
  • Policies for your eCommerce site
  • Establishing how warranties for your service work

Having strong, authenticated terms and conditions documents on your website can answer common questions from customers on some of the most important aspects of your business. Additionally, it reduces your risk of liability if you have a lawsuit filed by a visitor. Using this generator can save costs, while also securing your website in the future.

Disclaimer generator

Disclaimers are incredibly important to your website. They let visitors know where your liability begins and ends, which is important for their knowledge as well as your legal protection.

The Disclaimer generator that's built into the Privacy & Terms Management package includes template options for various uses.

These include policies around advertising, selling, or displaying health products, participating in affiliate programs, offering fitness advice, and providing advice that could be perceived as legal advice.

EULA generator

For businesses that offer software products and services, EULAs are essential.

Short for End User License Agreement, EULAs are the terms and policies surrounding the digital products that you sell to your customers. It's what protects applications against code theft, misuse, and reselling.

Implementing a EULA is a great way to protect your intellectual property and maintain control over your software after it's been sold. By using the EULA generator in our package, you can easily generate a EULA for each of your products in a manner that's both affordable and fast.

Automatic updates

Generating the various agreements, policies, and documents outlined above is great — until those documents become outdated.

And since regulations change frequently, it doesn't take long for policies to need updating!

That's why automatic updates are built into all of the policies and documents offered in the Privacy & Terms Management package.

That means you only have to generate these documents once, and then they'll automatically update on their own — for as long as you’re subscribed to the service.
