    Hello Everyone,

    I am in the process of making a website using any suitable e-commerce platform and would like to know how to write “Terms of Use” and “Privacy policy”.

    All advices appreciated.

    I suggest using a template. then refine it. make it understandable. remove jargon that does not apply.

    if you keep the customer’s email address. what are you doing with it?
    if you keep the address. what are you doing with it?

    etc.

    at the end of the day they can be extremely hard to read and understand so you want something that covers all your use cases but is not so complex someone could complain that it is not “clear” enough to be useable by the general customer.

    Going to go against the grain here… you don’t unless you know what you’re doing and understand the legal implications of what you do and don’t include in your ts & cs or privacy policy. For example, do you know if your privacy policies need to be GDPR compliant?

    If you go the template route rather than engage a lawyer to draft for you, ensure it’s a template provided in accordance with Australian legislation and requirements. There are a few out there with affordable options, one I refer clients too is at https://legallyshalini.com.au/shop/ – These templates I know to be drafted by an Australian lawyer that practices predominantly in contracts and agreements, aimed at small businesses and at reasonably pricing.
