More than you might think and yours might be one of them!
But even simple information websites like this one need a set of policies to protect the user BUT perhaps more importantly from a commercial point of view to protect your business.
And there’s one final area where some website owners fall down and that is they choose to ‘borrow’ policies from someone else’s website. Not only is this against the law – it breaches copyright rules – but it’s also unlikely to afford you the protection your business needs as there’s really no such thing as ‘standard’ terms and conditions as every business and website is different.
Our advice? If you’re investing in a website don’t scrimp on making sure it’s legal!
