WP AutoTerms plugin helps you with a wide range of legal requirements your WordPress website might be required to keep up with, such as the GDPR law or the requirement to have a disclosure for affiliate links.
You can also create your own legal pages and manage them through WP AutoTerms.
“Compliance Kits” can help you with certain legal compliance requirements:
Links to Legal Pages. Your legal pages must be visible and accessible to all users. Use this Kit and automatically insert the links to your legal pages in the footer section of your website.
Update Notices of Legal Pages. It is a best practice to inform users when you have updated your legal pages. After a legal page update, use this Kit to show an announcement bar for a limited time to inform your users.
The following features are available under WP AutoTerms Premium:
Currently, the Cookies Notice kit IS NOT a solution to load third party JS scripts. You can only use the kit to show a notice message to users.
Endorsements. You need to disclose if you have affiliate links on your website. Use this Kit to include a disclaimer at the end of your posts with affiliate links.
