This app works for any kind of website really, but the implementation would just be a tad different depending on your platform.
Watch the video below to get the deets on how to get a free and easy cookie consent bar to add to your website.
In the tutorial, I also walk through how to add it to your Showit website. If you use another platform, check to see if they have a built-in cookie consent bar and if not, do a quick Google search on how to add a snippet of code to the head of your website pages and the app can work for you, too!
If you have a contact form, collect email addresses through an opt-in, or use any sort of data tracking tools like Google Analytics, you need to publicly share how that information will be used. The easiest way to get your website up to date and legally legit is with an attorney-drafted contract template. One of my fave resources for contract templates is The Legal Paige.
TLP has contract templates for nearly every creative niche you can think of. They are easy to use and understand and her Website Terms + Privacy template takes all of 5 minutes to open, fill in the highlighted blanks, and copy-paste into your website.
