We found that businesses were struggling to find a reliable alternative to cheap, non-compliant templates available on the internet which exposed them to the risk of fines (on the one hand) and (on the other) the cost of having a solicitor, lawyer or other legal professional prepare the documents for them, for which they received quotes of up to £2000 or more, prices they could neither afford nor justify.
We provide two products:
- Legal update platform. Our legal update platform provides access to a range of documents including the latest template documents, guidance, subject access request templates and much more, so that businesses can ensure their website is compliant with relevant legislation, all at an extremely affordable price of £30 + VAT per year (after the expiry of our 6 month free trial period).
Problems with existing website documentation and templates
Here are just a few of the issues we have come across when reviewing third parties’ website documentation, all of which risk exposing your business to serious fines, damages or can massively reduce the value of your business:
- The template has never actually been reviewed or approved by a qualified lawyer at any stage.
- The template only complies with certain laws that affect a business but not others e.g. extra-territorial laws such as the Californian Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) which can impose fines of up to $2,500 per breach.
- The template or service they used to prepare their policies was either overpriced, incomplete, insufficiently certain to ensure legal enforceability and/or lacked sufficient legal protection for the website owner.
- The documents did not fully set out acceptable uses of the website, failed to fully set out any practices in relation to the processing of personal data and/or are simply non-compliant with existing legislation under the Data Protection Act 1998 or new regulations introduced by the GDPR.
- The documents were too vague and lacked transparency (a legal requirement of the GDPR) e.g. stating that your information may be passed on to “third parties” without stating who those third parties are and/or implying that you can pass information on to all third parties without your users’ consent, or stating that users’ information will not be passed on to any third parties and thereby limiting the circumstances in which you can legitimately pass on users’ information to third parties, potentially damaging the value of their business, particularly in the event that the business owner wishes to sell the business or work with business partners.
- They did not explain what actions the website owner needed to take in respect of your website itself e.g. in relation to whether or not you can place cookies on your users’ computers and when you need to obtain your users’ consent to process their data.
