Which Legals Do I Need For My Website?

which legals do you need for your website

Are you contemplating which legal documents you need on your website?

You may also be thinking “isn’t that just legal mumbo jumbo at the bottom of websites”? Do I really need them? The short answer is not technically, but they are smart things to include. We’ll explain why.

But first, let’s begin with defining the 3 main legal documents:

  • Terms & Conditions:

    To limit your liability and to state the terms under which you do business, including delivery, return and refund policies.  If your site uses a forum, blog comments, or other user-submitted content, you should strongly consider having one.

  • Privacy Policy:

    A Privacy Policy states how you will keep all personal information safe and secure;  you will not sell it without their permission. Since almost all websites have contact forms, most websites should have a Privacy Policy. This should be your first priority.

  • Disclaimer:

    You never know, the information you publish could be out of date; any advice you offer may be misused or misinterpreted by your visitors; and so on. Most websites provide information, so you should probably have, at least, a general Website Disclaimer to protect yourself and your business.

So, how do I know which one I need?

The infographic below from Legal 123 asks you 6 simple questions and if you answer ‘yes’ to any of them, it will let you know which legal document you need for your website.
