Spent a lot of money on your business’s website? By including legal documents on your website you can make sure it doesn’t cost you more than it should.
You may be surprised to learn that investing in those fine-print documents many of us do not read, may actually save you a lot of money down the track and can be a surprisingly powerful marketing tool.
1. Privacy Policies
A typical policy will include:
- whether you share any personal information collected;
- contact information for destroying personal information;
- how you safeguard personal information; and
- information about third party sites that might collect information such as advertisers.
These requirements are complex, and you should consult a business lawyer to ensure that your policy ticks all the legal boxes.
2. Terms and Conditions of Use
Given that whatever you include in your terms and conditions page will have contractual ramifications, and may even trigger obligations under consumer legislation, I highly recommend approaching a business lawyer to assist you in putting together a strong document that will be able to stand up in court should a dispute arise.
