Website Terms & Conditions.

Creating website terms and conditions, and properly implementing them, can help reduce the risk of lawsuits and in the event of a lawsuit, can help reduce your liability. To learn more about creating website terms and conditions visit Create Your Website Terms and Conditions.

Do you have an open or closed API to let third party developers collaborate with your offering? Wires Law can work with you to create the terms and condition for those third parties accessing your API.

Privacy Policy.

Privacy policies are required by law in Canada for companies collecting user data in the course of business. If you do not have a privacy policy the Privacy Commissioner may pursue you and impose sanctions under the relevant legislation. If you do have a privacy policy that is not implemented properly (i.e. you collect client or user data without their consent, or use it for a purpose they have not consented to), you also risk being sued by the client or user. Learn more about how to create your privacy policy with Wires Law.
