While I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t play one on TV, I can offer up a few generally accepted guidelines on the kinds of legal pages that every business should include on its website.
Every site should include an About page – a place where prospects and customers can learn a little bit about you, your business, and the people who work there. It’s not a legal requirement, but an About page is an essential page to help establish trust in you and your business.
It goes without saying, I hope, that customers need to have an easy way to get in touch with you. Email, phone, instant message, social media, and of course, phone – pick one, or several…but make it easy for people to contact you. If you want customers, that is.
Include an earnings disclaimer if you sell products or services that inform your visitors how to make money. Even if it’s information that they may construe as “how to make money.”
You can simplify and streamline these pages with one simple link in your web site footer entitled Legal Pages, and a drop down menu linking to each individual page. Nice and tidy – and covers your butt from all kinds of potential nagging legal issues.
Again – not a lawyer here – these are basic tips and a lawyer should be consulted to determine what you may need for your special business or situation. K?
