Today, I want to talk to you about something that might seem a bit dry, but it’s very important for you to know about if you have your own website.
When I signed up for one of Melissa Ingold’s courses, I also became part of a private Facebook group. In that group, I found out about Lory Moore. She graduated from Baylor Law School in the U.S., and has grown several of her own businesses online. She recently teamed up with Bill Guthrie, and together, they put together some wordpress plugins and legal information that you must be including on your websites in order to protect you, your business, and your assets.
In the past, I’ve used free plugins to create terms and conditions and privacy disclosures for my websites, but I have been searching for a couple of years for REAL online legal information to add to my website (i.e. written by a real lawyer). I did find some stuff, but I never knew who had written it (i.e. was it even written by a lawyer?), nor did I know how old or up-to-date the information was, so I never bought it.
Well, I have finally found something that I bought, and have installed, as well as something that I am proud to recommend to others.
1.) The Privacy Simplified plugin
This plugin offers you 5 choices of disclosures. You can choose a particular disclosure for each post or page, or you can choose a site-wide disclosure.
Check it out! Here is a disclosure created quickly with a shortcode using this plugin:
Here’s a quick video:
This allows you to create terms and conditions and privacy policies on your website so that you are compliant with U.S. law. Even if you are not an American citizen (I am not), if your customers are located in the U.S., it’s still important to have this paperwork on your website.
The 3-minute video that I created below is a quick introduction to the product, but for full details, it is better to see all of the actual sales page here.
