How Do I Know When I’m Done Setting My Policies Up?

You should see the policies you need in your account (this may be different than what you see in the screenshot below), specifically the ability to view policy, edit policy, override policy, and view embed code. If you don’t see these, the policies are not complete. There should not be any error messages showing. More recently (than the creation of this post) is a Cookie Policy and Consent Tool. You’ll see this one show up if you answer questions in other policies a way that requires it.

Hi. In this video I’m gonna show you how to do your portion of the Termageddon setups for your legally required pages. There are some pieces that you are going to have to do because I don’t know the ins and outs of some of your business pieces. And then there’s going to be some that I can do for you to kind of help with that process. Then I’ll be adding the policies, I’ll be creating pages, adding the policies that you need to your website and getting all of that set up for you.

So the first thing that you have to do is this global license information section. Basically, you’re always going to select “website” because we’re not dealing with apps. And then this is going to depend on your legal business structure. Is it a person that owns it or is it a company that owns it? What is the structure for your business? So you’ll select the one here. You’re going to get a drop down here asking for a few more questions. That happens with several of the things throughout the setting up of these policies. These pages, depending on how you answer a question, is going to determine whether you have more questions that you need to answer.

If it’s a company, you’ll need to make sure that you know the correct legal entity type for the company. And generally where you wanna resolve disputes is wherever you are located so that it’s easy for you. And then this would be whatever email you want people to contact you at. It might be one with your name or it could be you know, customer service at or support at, or info at something like that. It’s up to you, but it is required.

Once you’ve done all of this and you save it, it’s going to generate some options for you. And I’m gonna pause this video so that I can go into another license where this is done and show you that part of the process.

It’s going to generate these different policies for you. If you don’t see this one right away, that’s okay. Sometimes this, I don’t think this pops up until you answer some other questions within these policies. And those questions determine whether you actually need this or not. Most people do need it on some level, so don’t be surprised if it pops up. The terms of service is the primary one that I have to have you do because this relates to how you conduct business. Do you do refunds? Do you offer subscriptions? Can people request a refund or return something and it, it relays all those kind of policies for how you do business when they buy products or services from you. I don’t know the ins and outs of your business well enough to be able to do this piece for you. There are probably going to be some questions that you’re not sure about. And because I’m not a lawyer, I can’t really advise you, but I can offer you a couple of tips in terms of how I do it. And I’m just going to use refunds as an example. If you sometimes do refunds and other times don’t, and you want the discretion to make that decision I would, if it were me, I would select that I don’t ever do refunds because the terms of the policy are so people know what to expect and so that you are protected. And if I say that I never do refunds, I certainly have the option to occasionally make an exception and give someone a refund at my discretion, but I don’t have to because my terms say that I don’t do it. So my suggestion is always to air on the side of caution to protect yourself. If you sometimes do something and other times you don’t, or if it’s kind of conditional say that you don’t do it, you know put in the stricter version of your options so that you are protecting somebody can’t come back to your policy and say, look, it says here that you offer refunds and then you just have to refund them or you’re violating your terms of service.

Most everything if you look inside of the policy has these little question marks. So if you’re not sure what it means, you can click on it and sometimes the response is a little more complicated than others and but it’ll give you kind of an overview of what, what this one is getting at and how to respond. I find those to be really, really helpful when I’m going through and doing all of that.

So this one is the main one and the disclaimer is the other one. This relates to if you’re giving health related advice, legal advice, doing affiliate kind of stuff. And it’s a very short one, so it’s pretty easy.

The privacy policy and the cookie policy both relate more to things that are happening on the website. So I’m happy to do those for you. And will ask questions if I come across a question in that process that I feel like I need some direction from you, but most of it does relate to what’s happening on the website and I feel like I’m a better person to answer those than is easier for me because I have a better understanding in the back end.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have them. I just have to put out the disclaimer that I’m not a lawyer, so I can’t really advise you on how to answer some of these questions, But if I can get you what you need or help provide clarity, I’m happy to do that. Let me know if you need anything, and thanks for taking care of this.
