Jimdo Exclusive: Get GDPR-Compliant Legal Text for Your Website Or Online Shop

Good news for any website and online shop owners concerned about the GDPR. Now you can get compliant legal texts automatically with our new Legal Text Generator.

Since the new GDPR rules came into force in 2018, people have been unsure about how the new regulation applies to their business. That’s why we’ve worked with Trusted Shops to make legal compliance hassle-free. Now you can stop worrying about how to write and update your legal texts and focus on running your business instead.

The Legal Text Generator add-on is available for website and shop owners in the EU. Once it’s added, it will be fully integrated into your website or online shop.

What legal pages are covered for my website?

  • Privacy Policy
  • Imprint

What legal pages are covered for my online shop?

  • Privacy Policy
  • Imprint
  • Return Policy
  • Terms and Conditions

 Important for shop owners: You should still check industry regulations for the type of product you’re selling e.g textile regulation for retail shops. In these cases, you can add the details to your product description. However, all the legal pages on your Dolphin website and shop will be taken care of by the Legal Text Generator.

Here’s how the Legal Text Generator works

The new Legal Text Generator is a smart alternative to complicated external tools or expensive consultations with lawyers. It’s integrated with Dolphin websites and online shops. You answer a few questions, and the generator creates your customized legal pages based on your details. 

  1. Go to your Dolphin website or shop, then Pages > System Pages (and Store Pages if you have an online shop) then click on the button to start. Enter your details in the Legal Text Generator
  2. If you have a website, the generator will draw up a Privacy Policy and Imprint specifically customized for your business. As a shop owner, the generator will provide personalized texts for your Privacy Policy, Imprint, Return Policy, and Terms and Conditions.
  3. They’ll appear on the correct pages of your website or shop.
  4. Unlike external tools, the generator will keep you up-to-speed on any legal changes and notify you if you need to make updates.
  5. It will also automatically update your Privacy Policy if you add new integrations like a Facebook button or Google Maps.
  6. When your business information changes, just update your details and the generator takes care of the rest.

Note: In some cases, you’ll receive a notification in your Dashboard asking for a quick confirmation before your text is updated. If your business information (such as your company’s address) changes, you will need to re-enter it yourself. All other updates are made automatically by the Legal Text Generator. Just remember to regularly Publish your website or shop.
