When it comes to legally protecting your business, your words have to match your actions.
The truth is, if you’re using free or borrowed contracts or website policies (I’m looking at that copy and pasted terms & conditions!), then your words are definitely NOT matching your actions.
If you don’t even know what you words (your policies/contracts) say, then how can you possibly ensure your actions are matching up?
You see, it’s not enough to just slop up a policy on your website and rest on the fact that it’s there.
Actually, it’s really bad if you have policies up, but then don’t actually know what they say and therefore, don’t practice what you preach.
It will be even worse in the end if someone accuses you of lying or making false promises. And worst of all, you might have done so by mistake — because you didn’t know what the policies said.
The point of having the 3 major website policies in place is to let your visitors know…
>>> how you collect their personal info + what you do with it
>>> who you are and what you do, so they can’t accuse you later of giving them bad advice
>>> what your business policies are, like refunds/returns, sharing your content, chargeback threats, and your intellectual property rights….
…so you have written proof to actually protect + defend your business and have something to show that your words match your actions.
If you’ve avoided putting up website policies until now…
Or you’ve put one up, but you’re here because you’re not sure they’re right or enough to protect your business…
You’re in the right place, but it’s time to take action.
There’s no right or magical time to have website policies in place.
Each and every time someone visits your site, you’re risking her not knowing who you are/what you do so she can judge how she wants to implement your suggestions, therefore exposing yourself to unnecessary risk down the line.
And every time you lay at night wondering what you’d do if someone stole your content or stopped paying for your product, your terms & conditions aren’t there to protect you, so there’s not much you can do about it.
The freebie or borrowed contracts and web policies don’t work for you because…
- You haven’t customized them to your business, so they don’t actually protect you; and
- They didn’t come with any support or professional explaining how to customize them, or to explain what they mean.
