Many authors don’t know that Privacy Policy agreements are required by law across the world if you’re collecting data that can be used to identify an individual. This is because this data is legally protected by a number of important laws around the world that require a Privacy Policy in such cases.

If you’re a new author with a website, the words “required by law” can be intimidating. I certainly know the feeling of searching endlessly for the right privacy policy template until I was going crazy. However, after way too long of searching, I eventually found one that I quite like.

And the best part is, not only is it a great policy, it’s completely FREE!

It’s from Bobby Klinck, an intellectual property attorney who provides an array of easy-to-customize legal templates for business owners.

Legal Template Library from Bobby Klinck

I bought a 3-pack of legal templates that should go on every website:

  1. GDPR-compliant Privacy Policy – Where you tell website visitors what info you collect, how you use it, and how you protect it.
  2. Disclaimer – Where you tell visitors that you are not giving them professional “advice”; where you disclose information about affiliates and related topics, and where you disclaim liability for certain events.
  3. Terms of Use – Ground rules for your website; where you tell visitors about the lawful use of your website.

After following Bobby’s instructional video, I quickly and easily changed the templates to my liking, uploaded them to individual webpages on my site, and linked them in the footer.

But why can’t I just copy portions of your policies onto my website?

That would be great wouldn’t it? The answer is complicated, but it is because they are also customized for my business, and the forms I purchased are licensed for a one-business usage. All three legal forms include clauses that may or may not apply to your business.

But trust me, you’ll want to download the full template and watch Bobby’s instructional videos so you can decide exactly which clauses to include in your forms.

Having a peace of mind was well worth the money!

I had included legal policies on my website for a while but never felt too sure about them; now I’m confident that these documents cover all the bases. If you have been around me for a while, you will know that I only recommend assets I myself use and believe will help your work life be easier. In fact, after using Bobby’s forms, I was so eager to suggest them to my readers that I joined his affiliate program. This means if you buy those legal papers from him, I will get a commission.
