First Time Blogging WordPress Copyright
There is another part of web developing or online selling that many forget at the beginning.
The legal rights to your website and it’s content. Remember that your content is precious to you and you want to protect the content, images, products and other files you might be sharing in your website from people copying, using your content, using your files without your consent or worst of all claiming that it belongs to their website.
If you have a membership site, your clients personal details and other information they share with your site will also need to be protected.
The following is a list of pages of legal declaration about a website, blog’s content and products.
- Privacy Policies
