Why do you charge a subscription fee?

Termageddon monitors privacy laws, notifies you of changes, and can push updates to your website policies automatically with new disclosure requirements.

Privacy laws are broad-reaching and can apply to businesses regardless of their location. There is a growing number of proposed privacy laws throughout the world. For example, in the United States, there are currently 29 state privacy bills that, if passed, will require certain businesses to make new disclosures within their Privacy Policy. Failure to provide these new disclosures could result in privacy-related fines or lawsuits.

What privacy laws do you cover?

Privacy laws are broad-reaching and may require your business to make specific disclosures within your Privacy Policy, even if you are not located in that state, country, or continent.

Termageddon provides Privacy Policy disclosures required by:

  1. Canada
    • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
  2. European Union
    • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  3. United Kingdom
    • U.K. Data Protection Act of 2018 (UK DPA)
  4. United States
    • California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
    • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
    • Delaware Online Privacy Protection Act (DOPPA)
    • Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A

Termageddon also monitors proposed privacy laws within these areas as well. For example, here are the US State privacy bills that, if passed, may require additional Privacy Policy disclosures: https://termageddon.com/us-privacy-bill-tracker/

How do I add Termgaddon to a webpage?

After you have purchased a Termageddon license through the App Store and have generated your policies via the questionnaire, you can add your policies by following these steps:

  1. In the side panel of the editor, click Pages.
  2. Click + New Page or click the existing policy page you would like to edit.
  3. In the side panel, click Widgets, and locate the Policy Content widget.
  4. Click and drag the Policy Content widget to the location you want.

You will have the option to select the policy you would like to load and set your preferred styling options.

Why can’t I put more than one embed code on a single page?

Consolidating website policies is not compliant with several privacy laws. We recommend having a separate page for each website policy. More information can be found here: https://termageddon.com/consolidating-policies-one-page/

I don’t see a link to my Privacy Policy. Where is it?

After you generate your policy pages, you can add hyperlinks to these pages within the footer of your website (or anywhere else). Make sure links to your policy pages are visible. More information can be found here: https://termageddon.com/proper-display-of-your-privacy-policy/

How do I share a license with someone else (for example, my client, attorney, etc.)?

After you purchase a license, you will register for a Termageddon account and set up your first policy. Once this is done, you can click the Users tab on the left side of the panel and click Share License.

When you share a license, that person will be able to view and customize the policies, invite others to access the policies, and receive future notices when the policies are updated due to new privacy laws. You can share licenses with up to 20 separate emails.

I am a web designer. Why should I talk about website policies with my clients?

If you are building websites for clients that include contact forms or Google Analytics, your client may be required by multiple privacy laws to display a Privacy Policy that includes specific disclosures. A Terms of Service sets the rules for using a website and can help limit the liability of a website owner. Disclaimers are required if the website provides affiliate links, displays advertisements, sells health products, or provides information that could be seen as legal or health/fitness advice.

Discussing website policies with clients and prospects demonstrates that you stay on top of industry trends and consider all aspects of what makes a website great.

What happens if the client is receiving personally identifying data from other means and not directly from their main website? Are the policies only applicable to the website the visitor is on or to the website owner's business in general?

This really depends upon your client's personal preference. Some clients like to include only the information that the website is collecting, while others like to include all information that a business collects, regardless of the source. Both ways are correct so it is really your client's choice as to what they would like to disclose. In addition, certain privacy laws may require your Privacy Policy to disclose the sources from which you collect the personal information. The Termageddon questionnaire will determine what privacy laws apply to you and will then ask the question as to the source if such a disclosure is required.

If a client refuses the cost for Termageddon and chooses to send their own privacy policy, is there any comeback on the web agency should the client end up with a privacy case filed against them? Is there any written acknowledgement we can provide stating they declined our recommended (Termaggedon) services?

Termageddon offers a (free) Website Policies Waiver that helps agencies get documentation when building websites for clients. This waiver includes copy on the importance of website policies, as well as optional "next steps" a client can take. Regardless of what the client selects, by having clients sign this waiver, agency owner further protect their business by documenting that they discussed the importance of website policies.

We have many sites previously developed that are not on Duda, and we signed up as an Agency directly on the Termageddon website. Will I able to get Duda Reseller pricing directly with you for my legacy (non-Duda) sites?

Agencies that are already Termageddon users will now have the additional option of purchasing Termageddon licenses directly from the Duda App Store. The wholesale pricing offered through Duda and directly through Termageddon is the same price point and are designed to help agencies resell Termageddon at the full $99/year regular price.

Can Termageddon review our current Privacy Policies in place for our clients' websites?

Termageddon is not a legal services provider and cannot provide legal advice. Because reviewing current Privacy Policies and providing suggestions may be seen as legal advice, we unfortunately cannot review any existing policies and provide advice. If you would like to have your Privacy Policy reviewed, we recommend contacting a privacy attorney in your area. For more information about what needs to be included in a Privacy Policy, see What needs to be included in a Privacy Policy

Are new laws and policies automatically added? Are there any action items for us or for our clients?

When a new privacy law is passed, a few things can happen:

1. The new privacy law requires an update to be made to a Privacy Policy and the additional disclosures are comprised of information that we already know about you. For example, a new privacy law can require you to state whether you sell personal information. If you already answered this question in the past, we can automatically push the additional text to your Privacy Policy through the embed code that is created when you generate your policies.

2. The new privacy law requires an update to be made to a Privacy Policy but the additional disclosures are comprised of information that we do not know the answer to. For example, a new privacy law can require you to state whether you sell personal information. If you have not already answered this question in the past, we will send you an email and you will respond "yes" or "no" and then we will push the additional text to your Privacy Policy through the embed code. If you have used the override feature to manually change the text of a section of a policy, we will not automatically update that section as we do not want to delete your hard work. In this case, we will send you an email with suggested new language and you can choose whether you would like to keep the text that you wrote or update it with our suggested new text. Regardless of the type of disclosures required, we will always send you an email and an email to whoever you shared the license with, letting you know of the change. You can also opt out of automatic updates by contacting us.

Who assumes responsibility for the policy if we resell it to the client (Termaggedon, the client, or the web designer)?

We recommend sharing the license with your client via the Users tab - once your client accepts the invitation, they will be prompted to create an account and accept the Termageddon Terms of Service. At that point, the relationship for the policies will be governed by Termageddon's Terms of Service, meaning that Termageddon will assume the responsibility for the policies. However, you may still want to check your contract with your client to ensure that you are not promising compliance and that you are not assuming responsibility for the policies in your contract with your client.

Does Termageddon support Spanish and Latin America regulations?

Currently, we do not offer policies for businesses formed in Latin America. We only provide policies in English at this time.

Does this apply to Canadian websites?

Yes. We currently offer policies for businesses formed in the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

If we are already using Termageddon (Agency plan), how will our experience and client experience differ if a client is added through Duda versus our Termageddon dashboard?

The Duda App Store integration allows Duda customers (and their respective customers) to be able to purchase, set up, and implement a Termageddon license while remaining within the Duda platform. Having one less login can be a great thing, especially for busy clients, so this is a great reason to consider purchasing directly through Termageddon. This can be valuable for many reasons, especially when customers are using the backend of the website to make updates.

Is there a questionnaire I can send to my clients to gather information before signing up?

There are several ways to help a client get set up with Termageddon. For more information about common/best practices for handing off a license to a client, see Sharing a license template
