Are you about to start an online shop? Very good, your own online shop is a great way to earn money on the internet. But you have to consider a few things to make your new online shop legally secure. It is very important that you provide the most important legal texts and information about your online shop.
Since I often create online shops for clients or for myself, I need these “free legal page generators” quite often. In this article, I want to show you the best free legal text generators. So you don’t need to search Google for a long time and also avoid the potential “cost traps”, and you can use this article to create all the necessary legal texts easily and free of charge.
Please note that this article is not legal advice! I’m only speaking from my own experience here, I’m NOT a lawyer! For absolute legal certainty, please contact an online-law attorney!
Of course, it always depends on the country in which you want to sell your products. But there is no harm in having too much legal text on your online shop, rather than too little.
Therefore, you should include all legal texts in your online shop that I make available to you here. However, you should definitely read again or look for which legal texts are mandatory in your long and, if necessary, supplement these legal texts.
Especially if you want to sell within Europe, you sometimes need different legal texts on your website then I provide here. You must therefore find out exactly which legal texts are mandatory for your region.
Of course, that sounds like a lot of texts or pages to add to your online shop… but with the free generators that I’ll show you here, it’s relatively quick and easy.
You should copy some information into a document so that you can quickly insert this information into the generators and thus save time and not always have to enter all the information manually.
This information is for example: the shop email address, the shop URL, the legal form, who is responsible, the physical address, and the contact person.
Please note, however, that I cannot give any guarantees for the correctness and topicality of the texts produced. If you want to be 100% secure, you should contact a lawyer who will read the texts and check that they are correct and up-to-date!
(Note that all the tools are free at the time of my research, it may of course have changed in the meantime. Therefore I do not assume any guarantees for the correctness or topicality of the tools I describe here!)
It is very important to have a strong return policy page on your online store. It is not easy to find a free generator on the internet. Most of these so-called “Free Tools” will charge you at the end of the form money to be able to download the generated return policy. Here I found a really free and easy-to-use return policy generator.
Terms and Conditions are also very important when you create a website or online shop. So there are many different online tools that claim to be free… but you end up having to pay money if you want to download the generated terms and conditions page.
But I found a really free Terms and Conditions Generator tool for you (at least the tool was free during my research).
This information is very important to give your customers an overview of the delivery methods and shipping times. Unfortunately there is no generator for this, but I have linked an example text for you. There you can copy the text and paste it into your page. Of course you have to change and adapt the specific information. If you edit the delivery information page, you should still clarify which regulations apply in your country and whether all the necessary information is included in the text.
DMCA is the abbreviation for “Digital Millennium Copyright Act”, a US law for the enforcement of copyright disputes. The law went into effect in the United States in 1998. Due to the spread of the Internet, new regulations were necessary. Among other things, circumventing copy protection and digital distribution of copyrighted material is punishable. In the USA, website operators can register with the U.S. Register Copyright Office. First and foremost, the operators protect themselves against copyright infringements on their own website.
Here you can enter information about the shipping time as well as the shipping methods. Specify how long the shipping takes, so customers can easily find out about your shipping methods and shipping times.
Here you can the text that gives all the information about the possible payment methods that you offer in your online shop. This page is not that important but you should still have this page on your website. Unfortunately, there is also no generator that creates the text for you. But I have linked an example text that you can simply copy and paste into your website or online shop. You only have to adjust the texts and information!
Once you have all your important legal pages created, you need to make sure these pages are easy to access. You are not allowed to hide these pages in any submenus.
The best thing is if you store these legal pages in the footer of your website or eCommerce store.
I hope this collection of free legal text generators has helped you. It wasn’t that easy to rummage through the multitude of “fake free generators” and to find the really good and really free legal text generators.
