Do I Need Terms of Service? (Yes.)

Terms of service agreements outline the rules for websites, apps, and software. Like playing a football game with no rules, not having terms of service exposes you to greater risks. User agreements are, essentially, a code of conduct framework, and having one protects your assets. With terms of service, you can:

  • Limit liability exposure;
  • Maintain control of your website;
  • Address problems before they become potential lawsuits;
  • Implement user rules and guidelines;
  • Choose how to settle disputes;
  • Set your pricing, payment, and refund policies;
  • Control intellectual property.

Looking over your shoulder, waiting for the next lawsuit to fall, is stressful. By having terms of service and privacy policies in place will give you peace of mind.

Do I Need a Privacy Policy?

If you collect information from users, it's against the law in some jurisdictions (stateside and abroad) not to have a website privacy policy outlining how you collect data and what is done with it.

Privacy policies detail data collection methods and retention procedures. Any website, app, or piece of software that sweeps up and stores personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information should have a privacy policy.

Does the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply? Navigating through state, federal, and international data privacy laws can be confusing. We'll make sure that your privacy policy addresses your data collection practices— and works for all jurisdictions in which you operate.

Protect Your Brand And Assets

Millions of websites lack proper terms of service or a privacy policy, leaving them exposed to costly litigation. Many website owners think it's too costly; others don't understand the value of terms. While ignoring these problems may work for a short term, in the long run, you're putting your business at risk...skydiving without a parachute.

Legally protect your business, affordably.
