If you run an online business, blog or website then it is important to publish the right legal policies. Having the proper policies in place will help you comply with regulations and protect you from any potential claims and lawsuits.
There are a number of policies that website owners must adhere to regarding privacy and data protection. Rules, regulations and laws can vary by country and can also differ depending on the type of site you run. For example an eCommerce website has to provide information on refunds and returns.
