...But that doesn't mean you should value it any less!
Nowadays, collecting personal information is both complex and simple. Complex because there are legal regulations that you have to comply with - mainly the E.U.'s GDPR, but the United States has been rolling out our own versions of GDPR that vary state by state.
YES! Matter of fact, it's an overwhelming yes! Please allow me to explain...
Attorneys can get pretty expensive and depending on the business you're in, this may not be an practical option.

Financial services websites
and much much more...
But there is an easy fix: use Termageddon.
The tool uses plain English language and simple terms so you don't have to worry about confusing language or legal jargon that would make it difficult for customers to understand what information you collect from them and how you use it. You can also customize the policy by adding additional information specific to your business needs.
Termageddon Automatically Updates When the Law Changes
But recently, a new European Union law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect. And if you're not prepared for it, this could be bad news for your business.
The GDPR changes everything, including how you collect and share personal data with customers, employees and vendors. It's not something that's exclusive to Europe though.
While the United States has not rolled out something on the federal level, several states have begun to implement laws specific to protecting their residents. The laws, and people they affect can be different from state to state.
Create a Cookie Consent Banner Quickly
A cookie banner is what you use to give your users the option to accept or decline cookies on your website.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires you to get consent from your users before you can store their personal data, including cookies.
Termageddon helps you comply with regulations like GDPR and the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA). The tool is very affordable to use and can be customized to fit your needs.
It's easy to set up and customize, and it looks great on any website. All you need to do is enter some information, click the button, and embed the code to your website.
After you've implemented your cookie consent banner, you can edit it at any time by going back into your account and updating any relevant information about your business.
You can also use it to create Terms of Service
Termageddon has everything you need to quickly create a legal agreement that's easy for users to understand and accept.
There are other ways to protect yourself from legal trouble and avoid a huge financial pitfall.
Making sure you clearly outline what's expected of users on your website is critical especially if you're in the legal, medical, or non profit sectors.
These pages are important because they outline the expectations around user behavior on your website, like what kind of content is allowed and what types of content are prohibited.
In addition to outlining these rules, Terms of Service pages also provide instructions for how users can file complaints about inappropriate behavior on your site (for example, if someone violates your community guidelines).
Even if you have no experience at all writing legalese, your new policy will be comprehensive, error-free, and clear enough for everyone to understand.
