From the NY Shield Act to GDPR, Website Disclosures are now more important than ever!
If you are operating a website without policy and legal disclosures, then it is time to get on board.
Website disclosures are for your protection. They can help keep you out of court and may be your best defense if a lawsuit was brought stemming from use of your website.
Don’t settle for boiler plate disclosure documents. Many of these are non-sensical or do not actually cover how your site operates. Donaldson Legal Counseling PLLC reviews your sites complete functionality with you, and tailors all disclosure documents to fit your site, based on exactly how it is operating, to maximize your legal protections.
Terms of Service are the terms that you set for the public to interact with your website and also generally include required state and federal disclosures concerning site content.

Doing business with Europe? The GDPR rules may apply to your site. GDPR rules go to not only to data collected, but also impact how data is stored and tracked, so that it can all be deleted upon specific request. Don’t go it alone.
The Services Agreement governs how others provide services through your website. This Agreement includes indemnification provisions to protect you from third-party liability, sets the rules for how persons interact through you site, governs payment processes for giving and receiving funds, and provides for remedies upon breach.
