Website Legal Policies for Bookkeepers

Do you need a privacy policy?

Chances are, the primary goal of your bookkeeping website is to generate leads.

Whether it be because of contact forms, embedded appointment schedulers, website analytics tools, or an email signup form, your website is constantly collecting the personal information of its users.

You need a privacy policy if you have any website features mentioned above.

Can you copy someone else’s or use a free template?

Technically, yes – but you shouldn’t.

Like every chart of accounts you create for a client is customized to fit their business needs, so are website legal policies. There’s no “one size fits all.”

While templates can be a great place to start and are better than nothing, you won’t be fully protected when the laws change and policies are added and updated every year.

This means you could be leaving yourself open to being fined or sued.

My recommended privacy policy solution

Having a privacy policy is one thing, but keeping it up-to-date is entirely different.

This is why I encourage all of my clients to consider having a Privacy Policy and a strategy to keep it up to date over time.

Termageddon is the privacy policy generator I use and recommend because it helps you quickly generate a Privacy Policy for your website. The team monitors privacy laws and can automatically update your policies when the laws change.
