What is GetTerms.io?
Why do I need a terms of service statement?
Technically, you don’t need a terms of service statement. It’s not required by law, but it’s generally wise to include one on your site to cover the expectations and agreements between you and your users. Some organisations may even request you make one available before you can enter into a relationship with them.
Most of the time, site owners and users behave in a fair and reasonable fashion, making your terms & conditions info redundant. However, in unusual circumstances, such as those involving abuse, intellectual property theft or unlawful behaviour, having your terms & conditions stated explicitly can offer basic protections for you and your business by limiting your liability and clarifying your rights over the content you publish.
Do I have to give credit when using a GetTerms.io policy?
No. Policies generated by GetTerms.io may be used without credit or a link back. Feel free to change and adapt the content for your particular purpose also.
Do I need to register an account?
No, there is no account required. Just add your company’s name, URL, policy disclosure preferences, and generate your policy.
How much does it cost?
We have basic free policies to suit most websites and businesses that don’t deal with personal information. We also offer Custom and Comprehensive Packs, starting at just USD$15, plus optional language add-ons available at the time of purchase.
While the World Wide Web has revolutionised the way we access information, socialise and do business, online privacy is an ongoing concern for both regulators and consumers.
From sign-up forms to website cookies, almost every online service requires users to share information about themselves.
Naturally, this has generated a host of privacy & policy issues, prompting governments around the world to regulate the collection, usage and sale of user data.
As the Internet and technology continues to evolve, however, regulators have had to play catch up with new challenges and gray areas around the way businesses and consumers track and exchange data, particularly in a globalised world.
What is the GDPR?
In 2016, the European Union enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): the most comprehensive data privacy legislation that has been passed yet.
The GDPR consists of 99 articles which updated and expanded previous laws around data processing in the EU.
“Data processing” refers to the “collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.” (European Commission).
It also provides EU citizens with a set of eight “data rights” which give them more control over their personal data and privacy.
For example, a person has the right to withdraw previously given consent for their data to be processed by an organisation.
The reason why the GDPR has received so much attention from companies and regulators is because it has such a broad scope.
Any organisation, regardless of where they are located, may need to comply with the GDPR if they process the data of someone based in the EU.
Since coming into effect in 2018, regulatory authorities have handed down million-dollar fines to companies like Google and Facebook for failing to properly disclose how they were using people’s personal data, amongst other egregious offences.
Given that users can access your website or app from any location around the world, it’s likely that your business will need a policy to avoid infringing on any local laws.
Here’s some of the key details your policy needs to cover:
- The types of personal data your business collects about users.
- How you collect, store and secure user data.
- How users can access, update or request the deletion of any personal data collected about them.
- Whether you share user data with any third parties.
- How users are notified of updates to your policy.
- The measures users should take to protect their personal information while using your website or app.
- Your contact details, so that users can make enquiries about their data or submit a privacy complaint.
Back in the early days, most privacy policies for websites were excessively long and difficult to understand, and companies didn’t make it easy for people to opt-out of data collection and tracking.
In order to save time and effort, a lot of website owners also tended to copy and paste generic website privacy policies from other websites, which resulted in a lot of inaccurate policies and essentially defeated the purpose of having one in the first place.
In 2020, however, protecting your customers’ privacy takes more than simply ticking a box.
To avoid violating the litany of data protection laws that exist today, you should always put user privacy at the forefront of your business operations.
