The DIY Legal Toolkit vs. DFY Services

There are so many things you can do yourself when it comes to getting your online business’s legal ducks in a row. My DIY Legal Toolkit walks you through it all, for a fraction of the cost of hiring a lawyer to do it for you. 

However, if you prefer the done-for-you option, here are some of the DFY services I offer to help you cover your assets online… 

cover your assets online: why you need a privacy policyOPTION 1: “WEBSITE LEGAL LITE”

This package contains two extremely important legal docs for your website:

Privacy Policy + Disclaimer

1. You are legally required to post a  PRIVACY POLICY on your website if you collect any information from visitors, even if it’s just an email address. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) makes protecting your website visitors’ personal information mandatory. Beware of generic Privacy Policies: they do not take into account the nuances of your particular business and are likely to leave you exposed in ways you don’t realize.

2. Managing your risk is a crucial part of running an online business and your website’s DISCLAIMER is essential to such risk management. It protects you from lawsuits that may arise when a user of your site claims to have been injured as a result of having relied on the information you provide on your site. A disclaimer is a very broad statement and is the bare minimum you should have in order to cover your assets online.


terms and conditions for your website and products and servicesOPTION 2: “LIABILITY RISK REDUCTION”

This package contains two legal docs: one for your website and another for your products and services

Website Terms of Use  + Products and Services Terms and Conditions.

1. Your website’s TERMS Of USE statement spells out the rules you require people to follow when they visit your website. It lets your visitors know exactly what they are  permitted to do with the content you provide (with regards to commenting and sharing, for example) as well as what they are not permitted to do (for example, copying and redistributing your site’s content without permission). It’s also intended is to put limitations on any liability that may arise from misuse or unreasonable reliance on the information provided on your website.

2.TERMS AND CONDITIONS (a.k.a., Terms of Use) statement limits your liability when it comes to the products and services people buy from you. It warns against misuse of your products and services and disclaims any liability that may arise out of such misuse. In other words, it helps you set out the rules and guidelines that your buyers must agree to in order to use your products and services. You must provide this to your buyers at the time of purchase in order to make sure they are aware of the terms.


why you need a client agreement if you're a life coachOPTION 3: “GET IT IN WRITING”

This is the legal agreement/contract you will have your clients sign in order to “cover your assets.”

Client Services Agreement (CSA)

If you have clients you need a CLIENT SERVICES AGREEMENTWithout one your assets are extremely exposed.

A CSA lets your clients know, up front, exactly what’s being delivered. There’s no guesswork, and no surprises… for you or your client. It’s very reassuring (for both sides) to “have it in writing.”

Without a CSA you could find yourself out of pocket, wasting time, and unsure of how to proceed when a client fails to do what you assumed he or she would.

Having a signed agreement assures you that there will be no “misunderstanding” when it comes to the terms of the services to be provided: how the services will be provided and how often, the nature of the services to be provided, the cost of such services, and what to do when one of the parties fails to keep up her end of the bargain.

Don’t do business without it.

1. Privacy Policy

I was gun-shy of legal ‘stuff’ after a couple of bad experiences when I tried to do it all by myself, with disastrous results – to the tune of several thousand dollars and almost losing my business. After that, I thought I needed to keep an expensive attorney on retainer to do everything for me so that I wouldn’t get myself into hot water again.

Enter Lin. She showed me what I could do on my own (to save big bucks) and what I needed to hire a professional to execute. In addition, she gave me the step-by-step instructions for the DIY portion so that I could get it right the first time, with confidence. My ducks are in a row now and I sleep well at night knowing that I’m no longer at risk. Thank you Lin!
