Are you blogging legally??
Is your blog legally protected? Or are you relying on free templates? Is it because all legal bundles out there are way too expensive.
Well, all but ONE… And not just extremely affordable but easy to set up.. it took me less than 30 mins to set up all of my Legal pages!!
In the eyes of the law, your blog is a business, and you WILL need to learn how to legally protect your blog with legal pages to ensure that you don’t get sued.
In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is responsible for holding and protecting the rights of consumers.
Whether you receive a commission from any affiliate or sponsorship program, flat fee payment, free products or discounts in exchange for promoting a product in a blog post or any video, the FTC rule requires you to disclose your relationship correctly.
Meaning, you have to tell your audience that you’re getting a commission for that particular product or endorsement.
This post may contain affiliate links which means I may receive a commission when you choose to purchase the link I provide at no additional cost to you. You may read my full disclosures here.
You see what I just did and Yes!! I am legally protecting my blog!! If you don’t, you or the business you’re promoting could get slapped with fines which are pretty stressful and expensive.
Many Bloggers including new bloggers neglect this essential step and try to use free templates instead.
I am personally guilty of searching for free templates and even saved them onto my PINTEREST boards. But upon several days of research which led to light bulb moment and realized the risks involved with free templates. And Henceforth I decided this is one place I did not want to COMPROMISE.
And so the journey began in search of affordable Legal Bundle, which led me to this Legal Bundle.
THIS LEGAL BUNDLE Includes…
First, you absolutely cannot and should NOT copy someone else’s legal pages. That’s copyright infringement. If you can’t afford to hire a lawyer, you should invest in lawyer drafted legal templates that are well-written to protect you legally.
Second, unless you are a LAWYER, you can’t be specific in your ability to write the most comprehensive legal pages yourself covering all your legal bases and ensuring your compliance with the law.
Otherwise, we wouldn’t need lawyers because everyone could write their legal stuff, right?
Additionally, under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you are required to inform visitors from the European Union about certain rights they are entitled to such as their right to request access or deletion of their data kept by you.

disclaimer a must have for your website
A disclaimer on your website is a statement that serves to limit your legal liability for the content you publish. It informs the visitors and users of your website that all information on your website is for informational and educational purposes only and does not constitute advice of any kind (e.g., legal help, tax advice, financial advice, real estate advice, health advice and so forth).
A disclaimer is often forgotten by bloggers, coaches, marketers and online entrepreneurs resulting in legal liability when someone relies on the information you provide and expects the same results for instance.
You need it on your website to inform your readers that there are limitations on what they can or cannot do with the information, products, and services you provide.
A disclaimer includes this information along with other disclosures to protect you from lawsuits.
There are severe fines for not complying with the law! If you don’t want to face a hefty penalty up to $11,000 and be sued by the FTC, then please make sure you are following the rules!
Additionally, if you publish your income reports, testimonials, product reviews and success results on your website as examples for others to see then you need additional disclaimers for those reasons as well.
