NOTE: Before adding any legal pages to your website, remember to check their content with legal professionals

The easiest way to add legal pages is to create new pages via the Pages and navigation panel in the editor. If you want, you can then assign all your legal pages to a dedicated dropdown menu or hide your legal pages and add their links to the footer.

What legal pages are necessary?

What legal information is necessary for your website depends on your business and on the laws and regulations in your country.

Most often, you will need pages like:

Terms and Conditions

This document explains the rules for using your website or online store

Privacy Policy

This document informs your customers what information is collected through your website. This may include things like:

  • Use of cookies

  • How you process personal information (emails, addresses, names, etc.)

  • Whether you distribute this information to any third party and if so – what for, when, etc.

Customers want to know if their personal data will be exposed to third parties or used for newsletters or other communication. By providing a clear explanation, you can be sure to increase your brand's liability among your clients. A privacy policy is also required by law in some countries – for example, the GDPR in Europe requires every business to explicitly explain to its customers how their data is collected, used, and stored.

Payment Information

The payment info page should cover all possible questions about payment methods in your store

Shipping Information

The shipping information page in turn explains your delivery policy and may include the following information:

  • What items are allowed for shipment

  • Regions to which you deliver your goods

  • Terms of delivery

  • Estimated shipping time and price

  • How you handle returns

Return Policy or Refund Policy
