Law and Order: Small Business Edition – Why Your Website Needs Legal Pages

Nov 20, 2023 | Automation, Websites

Ready to unravel the mystery of why your super cool website absolutely needs Privacy Policies and Terms of Service, without inducing a yawn? Strap in, because I’m about to make legal stuff fun!

Why a Privacy Policy?

Think of your website as the hottest club in town, and your Privacy Policy as the smooth-talking bouncer at the door. This isn’t just about following the rules—it’s your playbook for how personal data gets the VIP treatment. It tells you how to collect, use, and share information, and trust me, you need it.

With all the flashy tools like contact forms and analytics, it’s like having rock stars at your party—you’ve gotta manage them according to the law. And these laws have more mood swings than a teen with their first guitar.

Why Terms of Service?

Your Terms of Service are the club rules. They cut the drama and protect you from party crashers and drama queens alike.

Linking to other sites? Your Terms act like your very own superhero suit, guarding you against legal villains. It’s not just about keeping the law happy; it’s about creating a chill space for your visitors to hang.

Setting Up These Pages: Step-by-Step

First, hide these pages from the search engines because let’s face it, no one comes to your site for the legal jargon. Tuck them neatly in your website’s footer—important, but not headline material.

Creating Your Legal Beats

Copying someone else’s legal lyrics? Big no-no. Don’t even think about snagging a generic template from the net. Legal vibes change faster than DJ tracks at a rave, and you need to keep up.

Here’s How I Roll:

Termly – The Budget DJ Booth

Termly lets you spin up these docs for free. Think DIY—great for starters but you’ll need to update the beats yourself when the law does its dance.

Termageddon (affiliate link) – The Premium Club Experience

Termageddon is my go-to. It keeps your legal pages not just up-to-date, but ahead of the curve, giving you a heads-up before new laws drop.

It’s $119 a year, roughly £95, for a full suite that updates itself. I’ll connect you with their legal maestros, and once they tailor your setup, I’ll handle the install. Auto-updating, zero fuss. Imagine that? Legal peace of mind so you can focus on being the life of the online party. Worth every penny.

Hi I’m Jenn

I work with solo & micro business owners to design, set up and support their business tech and processes. I also make it all a lot more fun than it sounds.

I come on board as your tech partner, working with you to simplfy and streamline your business. The result is a lot more headspace and a lot less overwhelm.

Join the Hell Yeah Tech PenPals

I send regular emails about how I make my business sustainable, ethical, automated and stable. If you're DONE with following the online business hustle machine and would like more time and headspace, you might like these.

What you get:

  • Subscriber only offers and discounts
  • First dibs on my client availability
  • Monthly Open Office Hours - pick my brain about tech + biz, or just hang out for tea and a chat.
  • Laughter and relief (no, not that kind, naughty!)

What you don't get:

  • A bazillion "buy this NOW" pitches
  • A useless PDF of "Top Ten Tips"
  • A 90 min waffling audio
  • Entrapment in a confuddling sales funnel
  • A pony (sorry)

When you sign up, I will send you three short emails and I'll invite you to my PenPals only monthly Open office. You're not entering into any slick sales funnel and there are no tripwires.
