How to Protect Your Business Legally with Amira Irfran

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 303

How do you gain “piece of mind” about your business? What mistakes are you making in your business? Is your business set up legally to weather any storm? In this episode, podcast guest Amira Irfan, a business owner and lawyer, shares valuable insights on legally protecting your business.

Amira tells all about the importance of understanding the legal aspects of your business, regardless of whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned entrepreneur.

One of the first common mistakes business owners make is not protecting customer data by neglecting to have a privacy policy on their websites. Many entrepreneurs tend to copy generic privacy policies, which can lead to copyright violations and potential legal troubles. Amira stressed the need for a customized privacy policy that complies with privacy laws to avoid financial damages.

Amira also discussed the legal requirements for websites, such as:
➡️having a privacy policy
➡️terms and conditions

These pages should be posted in the footer section of your website. The privacy policy protects user information, the disclaimer disclaims legal liability for your website’s content, and the terms and conditions outline policies like refunds and intellectual property usage. Ensuring these pages are in place can protect your intellectual property and help you avoid legal issues.

Lastly, Amira shared the importance of having freelance contracts or independent contractor agreements when hiring virtual assistants or contractors. Without a contract, you could end up facing major legal issues.

Listen in, and take the first step to start legally protecting your business.
