Easily Create Your WordPress Website Legal Pages

Create your own Website Legal Pages

A quick post today: I’ve been asked about how to set up legal statements (Privacy, Affiliate, Return, TOS) a lot recently. And I always provide the same answer. So I created this post that folks like you can tap into as needed.

Attorneys cost a lot of money and can be cost prohibitive for sole-prop website owners. However, you still need to have essential “legalese” on your website. Some statements are required by law, and others are to protect you and your business.

More importantly, having these pages and statements available and visible to your website visitors adds a level of trust and credibility that is important to growing your enterprise. These policies contribute to the legitimacy of your marketing efforts and, ultimately, your brand.

So what if you could create attorney-level legal policies for your website with a simple plugin? Enter WP Legal Pages Pro*. I’ve used this plugin on and off over the years on various sites to auto-general legal pages I can customize to my own needs. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Even if you have a blog or a simple small estore, it is important to have the basics in place to clarify how you are running your website. A few of the basics are:

  • Privacy & Cookie Policies (GDPR, ePrivacy)
  • Affiliate Disclosure Statement
  • Returns & Refunds Policy
  • External Linking Policy
  • Website Terms & Conditions, Terms of Service
  • Newsletter Policy
  • Facebook Privacy Policy
  • Anti Spam Policy (CASL compliant)

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to create and manage your custom legal templates? But what about law and rule changes? WPLPP helps keep you in compliance by regularly updating you. In addition, the latest policy changes are updated based on your type of business.

You enter your legal business details, and this plugin auto populates policies based on the legal guidelines applicable to your website.

Now to be clear, I’m not an attorney — nor do I play one on T.V. Running important policy statements by an attorney is always a wise approach.

But if you are just starting out and need to get the legal basics covered and in place, the WP Legal Pages Pro plugin is a solution worth checking out. Especially for the basic policy pages that every website needs to have in place.

Then, when you are rich and famous, you can hire a fancy-schmancy attorney to take care of all this for you!
