Do You Need a Website Terms + Conditions?

Do You Need a Website Terms + Conditions?

Does your website have the right policies in place?

Thinking it doesn't matter? Think again!

Your online policies have a big impact on customer happiness and your bottom line.

Plus, they'll need to meet certain legal requirements to prevent fines and lawsuits.

Here's the breakdown:

Terms + Conditions

You need these if you have a website...definitely an online shop.

These policies tells customers what they need to know about browsing your website.

You'll want to spell out the rules for using the site, sharing content, and where users can contact your company.

If you run an ecommerce site, make sure to spell out how you handle orders, returns, and shipping.

This is so important if you have an e-commerce site because, without these policies, your customer service policies like shipping, returns, and exchanges aren’t binding.

Privacy Policy

You need these if you have a website!

This policy tells users how you'll store their information: whether you'll  sell it, collect their cookies, track their location, and how they can opt out of data collection.

Many states, like California, have specific requirements that need to be included in an online privacy policy. Many countries have stricter privacy laws, so if your site is aimed at European audiences, you’ll need to comply with GDPR regulations.

You’ll want to create a separate webpage for your privacy policy and make it accessible from your homepage.

If you’re in California, you need a separate privacy policy that outlines California privacy rights.
