Legal Suite Pro is a WordPress Plugin that takes care of all your required legal pages for your blogs…and it’s so friken quick!
It took me less than a minute to produce 8 essential legal pages and an EU cookie compliance bar. I don’t even need 3 of those pages, but hey, why not?
Legal Suite Pro will easily produce the pages below:
- Anti-Spam Policy
- Copyright Notice
- DMCA Compliance
- Earnings Disclaimer
- FTC Compliance
- Medical Disclaimer
- Social Media Disclaimer
- Terms and Conditions
I control a number of blogs and sales websites and I can tell you it’s a pain in the arse to keep producing these legal pages every time I build a new one. Legal Suite Pro has taken that pain away.
There are a ton of these plugins around, many of them free, and I’ve tested most of them, but this Legal Suite Pro WP plugin is by far the easiest, fastest and smoothest I’ve used. I’ve now changed ALL my blogs legal pages by simply using this plugin.
I’ve done this for this very blog as an example, but with other websites, I’ve chosen the Legal Pages that are relative to the niche and made separate pages for them.
Do I Have To Have Legal Pages On My Website?
Now, I’m no legal eagle so I cannot give a lawyer’s answer, but apparently, it’s a big no-no if you don’t have them. It’s all about being ‘transparent’ and informing your readers/buyers that you’re the real deal and you conform to the law.
I have to admit I’m a bit of a nerd and have to confess that I’ve read through every single legal page that comes with Legal Suite Pro. For a legal layman like me, they appear to cover all the bases needed to keep your blog compliant with the shady laws of Internet greyness.
Legal Suite Pro Includes the EU Cookie Law Bar
What I also like about Legal Suite Pro is that it includes an EU cookie compliance bar that sits neatly at the bottom of the fold. Being from the UK, this cookie compliance rule has been rammed down our throats for the last 5 years. It’s now an EU law that all European websites must have this ‘agreement’ on a website. Yes, that means even the one paged diary of depressed cat must have it included!
Even if your website is outside of the EU, if a European reader visits your website, you should have the cookie law explained to them. I’m not 100% sure that’s completely true, but it’s a coming! As I say, I’m no Perry Mason!
Anyway, best to be safe than sorry. I recommend you get the Legal Suite Pro plugin if only for its ease of producing those pesky legal pages. It’s only around $9.

So, it makes sense to get the Legal Suite Pro plugin, doesn’t it?
As I said in this post, legal pages are a must for any website owner even if they’re boring and offer no value to the visitor. Don’t be worried that the pages will be seen as duplicated content either. Search Engines want to see these kind pages and it does lend your blogs credibility.
What Exactly is a Cookie?
A small round type of British biscuit. Seriously though, in the online world, it’s a tiny piece of data from a website that sits in your browser.
This then tracks your clicks and actions so it can ‘offer the visitor’ a better and quicker online experience.
In other words, it knows what you like and will form an opinion of you. In my eyes, it doesn’t help us at all…only advertisers and geeks.
What is The EU Cookie Law?
This has been around for ages, but it was updated in 2012. It’s an ePrivacy Directive that tells you that, if you’re a website owner, you must inform your visitors that you need permission to place a cookie on their computer.
It is supposed to help with the visitors privacy concerns and to make them understand that some of their online usage/data will be collected. Sounds very 1984 to me, but thems the times we’re living in.Source
Can’t do anything about it except to not accept the cookie. It’s just that if anyone complains that their data has been used and abused online, the authorities can ask if they clicked on the ‘accept cookies‘ button on the website they used. If they didn’t, then tough! But if there was no EU compliance notice there….then oops!
So it does protect us webmasters in that way. I’m not saying anything like that would happen (worse case scenario and all that), but can you imagine if it did? Scary.
Best put that EU Cookie Law bar on your website then.
Are Cookies Really That Bad?
No, not really…more of an inconvenience and jumped-up EU directive, but you can get into a whole heap of trouble if you don’t have the directive on your website.
There are two types of consent, Implied and Explicit. The Explicit type of permission is where the visitor must click and accept the law before going any further. The Implied type is there to let the visitor know that if they continue browsing the website then it’s imagined that they’re OK with the cookie.
Legal Pages? Didn’t Know I Needed Them?
So if you haven’t got any legal pages on your website, then I’d advise getting some pretty sharpish! Also, if you’re in the Euro Zone and you haven’t got the EU Cookie Law notice, then watch out…big brother is watching you!
And finally, if you build websites and you’re tired of setting up your legal pages every time, then the Legal Suite Pro Plugin is the perfect answer.
