The Legalities Of Having a Website-Who Knew??

law-guide_bookYou all know how much I love my job of running a Pilates Teacher Training company and we all know how it is incredibly rewarding and inspiring to be involved in something we are so passionate about. The actual teaching, creating and developing  courses, qualifications and workshops is the fun part, what I find most challenging is application of the legalities of running a business, making sure that I tick every box when it comes to website and social media lawful requirements. A few weeks ago I saw on Facebook a post by the fantastic Suzanne Dibble, reminding me of the law when using social media. Delving deeper into her posts and website, I realised that I was missing two important policies on my website that are a legal must, Website Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Cookies Policy. The guidelines seem to be that if you offering more than just a small information-only website then you will need to post "Terms & Conditions" somewhere on your website and if you are collecting any data, e.g. email information, then you will most certainly need a Privacy Policy.

Both policies will vary to small  degree depending on your business but please take a look at the Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Cookies Policy on the JPilates website to help write yours if you wish. I know some of you may be thinking "Well of course you need these policies!" but just in case some of you didn't know........!
