Do you need legal pages on your blog?

 

Your blog is now up and running, perhaps a perfect moment to throw a wild party and celebrate this incredible achievement.  

Oh no… not so soon!

Let’s check if you have what  all savvy and fevered bloggers who know how to build trust with their audience while avoiding costly court cases have on their blogs. They have the right legal pages!

A website without a Privacy Policy, a full page of its Terms & Conditions and several other legal pages, regardless of how good it is, may attract no notable recognition. From the unwritten rule book of blogging, a website without these critical elements isn’t worth asking its visitors to submit their personal details.

It gets even more severe if the site is an online shop, and has not even a single legal page for few will dare buy from it. Many online shoppers of today are quite savvy.

They carefully scrutinize the site, going to as far as checking whether a blog is fully GDPR compliant, how your blogs is processing their data, and what the Terms and Conditions actually stipulate. This, they know, acts as a cushion in case of any legal tussles along the way.

So, if you want to protect your blog legally and comply with legal requirements to avoid fines by the authorities, lawsuits, and/or formal complaints from your users you MUST have at least 4 crucial legal pages on your blog.

How to legally protect your blog with legal pages 

 

Quite frankly, what’s the essence of having legal pages on your blog?

As you may have probably guessed by now, having at least 4 of these really important pages isn’t in vain. 

With the right legal pages, everyone – both the blogger and the readers, are assured that the blog is legit and operates legally under the law. And in case of a lawsuit, a legal page may easily absolve the blogger.

For some pages, you’re actually required by law to have them. It’s not your choice, it’s the law and you must comply.

Besides, having legal pages on the blog is part of the now-popular international practices associated with owning a blog. They not only enhance the credibility of a site, but also set it apart from the amateur, poorly developed ones. It additionally cushions the bloggers from lawsuits emanating from what’s published on their website.

What legal pages you must have on your blog?

 

Well, this is possibly the question you are asking yourself right now. There are over 10 of these pages, and some sites even have all of them. It isn’t mandatory though that you also publish all of them.

Just four or five of them is enough to give your blog the all-important credibility while complying with legal requirements and protecting it from any legal problems.

If you have no idea about which legal pages it’s paramount to have on your blog, consider starting with the following.

1. Privacy Policy

 

You must have seen this, all legit blogs have one, often placed in their footer and other strategical places.

The privacy policy of a website has a specific purpose.

It serves an essential role in informing the audience what exactly their personal data is required for. It lets them know beforehand why and how their information will be obtained and processed.

Without it, no transparency will exist between both parties. However, with a well-written policy detailing user privacy, visitors will feel more comfortable browsing through the site and even submit their data, knowing how their data will be processed and their privacy protected.

Treat your blog like a business and protect it legally! You must have these 4 legal pages on your blog!

Do I need a privacy policy on my blog?

 

Let’s make one thing straight right out of the gate: incorporating a privacy policy into your blog is the right thing to do. But, if that’s not enough, you should know that when you skip out on privacy policy for your blog, you are simply courting trouble.

That’s right.

It’s super important to have all your legal pages set up for your blog, and even more so for your privacy policy. This is for several reasons, including:

  1. It’s required by several laws and regulations
  2. It protects your blog and yourself legally
  3. Brands, ad networks & affiliate programs may require you to have a privacy policy as a prerequisite to be able to work with them
  4. It builds trust with your audience
  5. Your blog will look more professional 

In an era when people are more concerned about their security online than ever before, new data privacy lawsuits and regulations keep cropping up every day.

So, a privacy policy is a legal requirement, first and foremost.

 

A privacy policy is required by law

 

A privacy policy is required by law in most countries and you must have one even if you don’t have an email list or subscribe forms on your blog because you’re still processing personal information on your blog in many different ways.

Depending on where you’re based, you may need to comply with extra requirements such as, for example, the GDPR or the CCPA.

If you don’t have the right legal pages in place or don’t comply with the legal requirements you may risk fines, formal complaints and lawsuits.

To provide you with an idea of what your blog is up against in terms of fines, lawsuits or formal complaints, here are some of the most important internet laws and regulations that call for privacy policy:

  • EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU (+ international territorial scope if you target or monitor users based in the EU). You can figure out whether the GDPR applies to you and your blog here.  If you want to learn more about the GDPR, you can also check out this comprehensive post on the GDPR on this comprehensive post on the GDPR on our other blog.
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in California (+ international territorial scope if you have users from California)
  • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA aka CA Privacy law) in California (+ international territorial scope if you have users from California)
  • Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the US and for sites, blogs and an array of other internet services that serve kids aged 13 and below.
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and provincial privacy laws in Canada
  • The Privacy Act 1988 in Australia

The list goes on and on. What that means is that if you don’t have a privacy policy, then you are essentially breaking the law and can face a barrage of legal issues.

If you don’t comply with legal requirements, you may risk lawsuits, fines, and formal complaints.

Plus, if that wasn’t enough, brands, ad networks & affiliate programs may not want to work with you.

The last thing you want is to be slapped with a fine or to have your earning potential severely affected for such something that you can correct in no time.

How do I write a privacy policy for my blog?

 

So, it’s now clear that you MUST have a privacy policy on your blog. There is no way around it.

As we’ve seen, in most countries, it is actually illegal for a blog to operate without a privacy policy. In the US, EU, Australia, South-Africa, Canada, for example, website owners are mandated to have a privacy statement easily accessible by their users.

The question on how big or what a privacy statement should contain, however, is contentious and often depends upon what the website serves and what legislation and regulations apply. For some, it could be a few paragraphs long with the type of data collected, age restrictions, whether the information would be shared, and so forth. For others, it could be a quite complex and detailed statement.

So, how do you go about creating a privacy policy for your blog?

Well, you have a few options. Let’s go through them one-by-one and see which options are the best, which options are viable, which options are too risky and which options are just plain wrong! 

legal pages you must have on your blog

Can you write your own privacy policy?

 

In theory, there is nothing that prevents you from writing your own privacy policy.

However, it will take you a long time to research everything and write your own privacy policy. This is time better spent working on tasks with a much higher ROI (return on investment) or doing what you like and do best, that is producing content and growing your business.

Not to mention that, realistically, the only instances where you could safely do that, are when you have a legal background yourself or you are familiar with the legislation that applies to you and you know how to write your own privacy policy.

If that’s the case, then the good news is, if you’re using WordPress.org (that is, you’re self-hosted as you should be), WordPress comes with a privacy policy draft. It’s not enough and doesn’t comply with all the legal requirements but it may be a good place to start from.

Free legal pages for websites and privacy policy generators

 

As tempting as they may sound, my advice is to steer well clear of free templates or free generators for legal pages.

In fact, you should never rely on free templates and generators because they’re not complete, they’re too generic, they’re definitely not comprehensive, and they don’t meet all the legal requirements.  You won’t even know who has drafted these free templates in the first place. Were they drafted by reputable lawyers?

If there is one thing you don’t want to skimp on is the legal side of blogging as you must make sure that you and your blog are protected legally.

Obviously,  it all depends on the level of risk you’re willing and comfortable to take. And I know some people may think free templates are fine. But they’re fine until they’re not.

Legal pages from other bloggers or websites

 

I see many bloggers in Facebook groups say they have created their privacy policy by “getting inspired” or, even worse,  copying the legal pages from other blogs or websites and suggest you do the same.

DO NOT, under any circumstances, – I repeat – DO NOT DO THAT! 

This is copyright infringement and you can get sued over this. You have no idea how many people get busted!

But that’s not the main reason why I discourage this practice. The main reason is that you don’t know what legislation applies to them specifically and whether it’s the same that applies to you too.

So, let’s say for example, another blogger from the US uses your legal pages. For the sake of this example we will say that this US blogger doesn’t need to comply with the GDPR because their blog doesn’t meet the requirements for it to apply to their blog.

But you’re in Europe and the GDPR applies to you so you have GDPR clauses addressing your visitors from the EU in your legal pages.

Now, by using your legal pages, the US blogger has just unknowingly made the GDPR apply to them.

But compliance with the GDPR requires way more than legal pages. So, now they’re exposing their blog to further risks of fines, complaints and lawsuits because they’re not fully compliant with the GDPR. 

That’s just an example but this can happen in relation to so many clauses and regulations.

Just don’t do it. If you do, you’re really asking for trouble.

Hiring a lawyer to write the legal pages for your blog

 

This is the best option of them all because a lawyer will craft your legal pages specifically on the basis of your blog’s circumstances and the specific legislation that applies to you.

Just make sure you consult with a lawyer who knows the legislation that may be applicable to you in your jurisdiction and to your audience, who is familiar with working online and having a website, and who is reputable.

Not all lawyers are created equal.

In Law even more so than in other professions, where you have studied, your credentials, your accomplishments, whether you have published peer-reviewed articles or taken part in conferences at a national or international level, does count and make the whole difference.

A lawyer who got their degree from a small college you never heard of or one who has completed their degree and furthered their education at the most prestigious and high-ranking universities, such as an Ivy League or the G08, well, they’re not the same.

So, please do your due diligence before engaging the services of a lawyer but be prepared to fork out thousands of dollars. Lawyers usually charge upwards of $500 bucks an hour. So, your bill may really add up quickly. Let’s be honest, most bloggers who are only starting out may not have the adequate budget for this option.

Legal templates for blogs drafted by a lawyer

 

Legal templates  drafted by a lawyer make sense for several reasons including

  1. You know they’ve been  drafted by a lawyer and specifically which lawyer
  2. They will tell you what clauses you need to include or don’t need to include depending on your specific circumstances
  3. You can ask the lawyer for support and clarification
  4. The financial investment is way less than consulting with a lawyer.

This option is very popular among bloggers because it lets you protect your blog legally paying a fraction of the cost than hiring a lawyer, while you can’t achieve the same results with free templates.

Basically, you would have access to the legal expertise without the high price tag.

But again, remember to do your due diligence about the lawyer as pointed out above.

Make sure you check

  • their education and where they have completed their degrees
  • when they have passed their bar exam
  • if they’re knowledgeable about the legislation that may apply to you and your blog
  • if they’re familiar with blogging, online marketing and making money online
  • if their templates comply with the most important international regulations such as the GDPR, the CCPA, the FTC guidelines, COPPA, etc.
  • if their templates are suitable for bloggers based in your country or whose audience is similar to yours in terms of size, demographics, and country of residence
  • the volume of their clients
  • the reviews and testimonials they have received
  • if they offer a refund policy and what’s their terms. If they have a 30-day happiness guarantee in place, that’s definitely a good sign that the quality of their templates is top-notch
  • bonus if they’ve outstanding credentials, are renowned internationally, have contributed to conferences and publications, and so on and so forth.

Once you find a couple of reputable and comparable candidates, then you may also want to consider who offers the best value for money.

So, have a look at things like

  • pricing
  • whether they offer payment plans
  • what’s included with the purchase
  • what kind of license they offer
  • whether you will need to purchase a copy of the template for each site you own or once you buy it you can reuse it as many times as you like
  • whether they offer bundles or discounts and special offers to return customers
  • whether the templates come with instructions on how to use it
  • whether they offer after-purchase support
  • whether an accessible, free, and private community is available
  • whether the templates come with extra bonuses
  • whether they offer lifetime access and future updates at no extra cost to you
  • again, whether they offer a 30-day happiness guarantee
  • whether they have an affiliate program so that if you find their products valuable, you can recoup your initial investment by promoting them to other bloggers
  • whether they offer lessons explaining the legislation and the rationale behind the clauses in the templates so that you will know what you’re saying and committing to in your legal pages and will know what to do to uphold your ongoing legal obligations.

Also, keep in mind that it wouldn’t be a good idea to share the cost of the templates with a friend or obtaining a copy of the templates from someone who purchased for themselves.

This is because lawyer who created the templates may easily find out whether you bought from them or not. The verbiage of a lawyer’s template differs from the verbiage of another lawyer’s template and each lawyer is able to recognize their template from a mile away and double check whether it was obtained through the right channels.

So, the lawyer could sue you for copyright infringement or at the very least send you a cease and desist letter and a DMCA takedown notice to your ISPs if they wanted to.

Following the rules is not only the right thing to do, it’s usually also the smartest.

Don’t put yourself in a risky situation. 

By hiring a lawyer or purchasing your own copy of  professionally crafted legal templates from a reliable and reputable lawyer, you’d invest little money now to avoid headache, spending big bucks, and wasting lots of time down the track if something goes wrong.

2. Disclaimers

 

Just like the name in itself indicates, a Disclaimer gives the blog owner the right to “disclaim” or “deny” legal liability for whatever is published on the blog. Given the freedom that blogging comes with, a Disclaimer is important in cushioning its publisher from any grievous consequences it could create. Quite simply, it gives them the immunity from lawsuits in the event readers experience any problem by relying on the information provided on the blog or in a blog post.

See, it is possible for someone to end up in court for a mere post published on their blog. But bloggers who include a disclaimer often never end up in such circumstances.

So, make sure your blog has a page for your disclaimers accessible from every page of your blog through your footer, header or sidebar. Make also sure that you place a short but effective disclaimer statement linking to your full disclaimer in your disclaimer page, at the top of each of your blog posts.

This is even more important if your blog covers YMYL (Your Money Your Life) content such as medical, health, finance, legal and similar topics.

Writing a Disclaimer page for your blog

 

When writing one, the format differs, pretty much like what one disclaims. Mostly, the length and content depend on the nature of the blog, aside from the gravity of whatever one posts. However, with it, one’s blog is safe from any charges and litigations their posts could instigate.

The options you have to write the disclaimers for your blog are the same as those we saw earlier for the privacy policy. 

You can go here to grab my disclaimer template which include harmless clauses, professional disclaimers, and much more.

3. Terms & Conditions

 

Your blog’s list of legal pages certainly is incomplete if it lacks the all-important T&Cs page, given that this is essentially a sort of legal agreement between you and your readers.

A blog’s “Terms and Conditions”, also known as “Terms of Service” or “Terms of Use” page, could be defined as a collection of all the “rules” governing everything concerning the website and its users.

Basically, it is a statement of all terms of an “indenture” between the blog and its visitors. Within this contract is how the owner expects those who use the blog to behave. It also gives the visitors an overview of what they should be ready for when browsing through the blog.

This clause also helps solve common issues arising from everyday customer-seller interactions online. It ideally comes in handy when things go out of hand, and the aggravated party is threatening to opt for a lawsuit. Simply put, it absolves the blog from any problems resulting from the user not making due diligence from engaging in any interaction or transaction on the blog.

If you don’t have terms & conditions on your blog, you must add it ASAP to protect yourself and your blog legally. You can grab my done-for-you template here. 

Writing a Terms and Conditions page

 

T&Cs, pretty much like the Privacy Policy, must be written by someone with a legal background. This is because; a solidly written Terms of Use page can significantly limit legal liability or any monetary losses as a result of a problem from the customer’s end. The clause will also ensure speedy resolving of issues, especially when the blog also deals in commercial goods or services.

One crucial thing to note is that no blog should go without this legal page as it captures several factors including but not limited to:

  • How and where disputes are to be handled.
  • Limitations of warranties and disclaimers.
  • The intellectual property policy and how it concerns the owner of the blog as well as all those who visit; basically to stop blog copyright infringement.
  • Rights to refuse services to a particular individual.
  • Refund policy, especially if the blog sells stuff
  • Applicable law and arbitration clauses.

The options you have to write the terms and condition for your blog are the same as those we saw earlier for the privacy policy. You can check out my template here.

4. Disclosures 

 

A disclosures pages is not as complex as the other three legal pages, but is equally important. Disclosures are crucial, both legally and from the ethical viewpoint. Basically, this page comes in handy when a blog covers affiliate products and  sponsored posts.

A blog owner will be required to disclose to whoever visits the blog all affiliate links that, if used to make a purchase, would earn them a commission. If the content on the blog had been sponsored (paid to promote a particular business or product), the owner also should disclose it. 

The Federal Trade Commission is an US independent, government-funded entity whose role is, among other things, to ensure that bloggers include disclosures in their posts and on their blog. It also monitors sponsored posts and endorsements, doing all these to gag on misleading posts, ads, and testimonials.

If you’re a blogger based in the US, you MUST comply with the FTC guidelines. if you’re based in another country you may still want to comply or else brands and affiliate networks and programs may not want to work with you or accept your application. Plus, it’s always good to be transparent with your audience and don’t break their trust.

A disclosure statement generally is okay, regardless of how short and brief it is, provided that it is clearly and conspicuously placed before the affiliate link and it specify what affiliate links mean and the financial reward the blogger may obtain through them. You should then have a disclosures page where you detail your full policy about affiliate links and sponsored posts. Your disclosure statement should link back to your disclosures page.

The options you have to write the disclosures for your blog are the same as those we saw earlier for the privacy policy. 

If you need help crafting the perfect disclosures, check out my FTC compliant disclosure template here.

      I know, it’s not usually the first thing that comes to mind when starting a blog, but it’s one of the most important though! Glad you’ve found my post helpful.

  1. Fantastic and in-depth information I definitely need to do some of these things on my blog and see the differences in Australian law

    1. Lucrezia Iapichino

      Thanks, Kat! Mostly everything equally applies to Australian bloggers too. I’m based in Melbourne myself! 🙂

  2. Great information! I’m an attorney as well, but this is an area that really requires some expertise to have the right pages, while making it as unobtrusive as possible. Thank you for sharing your expertise.

    1. Lucrezia Iapichino

      Hi April,

      Thank you! That’s so honest of you!

      Not many people realize that lawyers have different areas of expertise and that having a law degree doesn’t make you an expert in any legal matter. Having a legal background may not be sufficient to deal with all the intricacies of the GDPR, for example. Likewise, I’m sure I’d have no idea how to deal with the legal matters you handle at your job! lol

      Thanks fo stopping by 🙂

    1. Lucrezia Iapichino

      Hi Petra, yeah, they are a must-have if you want to protect your blog legally and avoid lawsuits and hefty fines.

  3. Alisa Infanti

    I never thought of a disclaimer page! I have a recipe blog but think this would be a good idea to add to my blog. Thanks

  4. This is one of the best articles on the must-have legal pages I’ve ever read! Thanks for this, I’ll share it with my friends, too!

  5. Great article you have here! I knew I needed a few legal pages for my blog but I had no idea of the finer detail of them. Thanks for sharing this article 🙂
