  • SHOW COMPANY DETAILS
    Making your contact details easy to reach from anywhere on the site is a sign of trustworthiness and often mandatory. Include
    important info like tax registration, etc. if necessary.
  • ACQUIRE REQUIRED LICENSES
    In case you are using images, fonts, code, plugins, etc. that need licensing, take care that everything is in place and stated
    as needed.
  • INCLUDE COPYRIGHT NOTE
    On a related topic, include a copyright statement if necessary.
  • PROVIDE PRIVACY POLICY
    Required in some places by law, an official privacy policy is always
    a good idea to create trust when collecting any sort of data.
  • INCLUDE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
    Don’t forget those T&Cs! Especially if you are an or otherwise dealing with transactions and money, this is
    an absolute must have.
  • IMPLEMENT COOKIE WARNING
    Especially in the EU, cookie warnings have become the law of the land. While a lot of people don’t like cookies because they can
    mess with their design, you can save yourself a lot of legal hassle
    by including them on your site as needed.
  • LOOK INTO LOCAL REQUIREMENTS
    Your area might have specific legal demands for anti-spam measures, credit card processing, and more. Make sure you get
    informed and that your site adheres to them.
