We know, the internet is losing its mind.
The golden age of internet marketing is coming to a close, but it doesn't mean you need to close up shop. It's time for you to adapt to the new rules, because there's a 99.9% chance they affect you.
And the sooner you adapt, the better chance you have at survival. Maybe even thriving! Because your competitors out there who are too slow or too lazy to pay attention to the GDPR will be wayyyy behind by the time they realize you've already implemented the changes and effortlessly moved on to greener wallets, er, pastures.
The GDPR applies to all websites with even low to moderate traffic from European "data subjects," aka anyone you collect data on (like names and emails).
This means your a-hole cousin who visits your site on her trip to Italy could land you in hot water if you don't have your ish covered. The GDP rules were designed to better inform visitors about their privacy, what the website does with your information (like emails and names for freebie sign ups) and how the site (aka YOU) are going to deal with any kind of compromised information that falls into the hands of shady hackers, possibly unbeknownst to you.
Does this apply to you?
If you're doing your job right, then yeah. Don't hide from the world because you're scared to put yourself out there!
Is it hard to comply?
Not if you know what you're doing! Or have the EXACT peer-reviewed blueprint to implement (hint hint).
What is the deadline?
Girlllll (or guy), you only got until May 25th to get this thing together! Chop chop!

Does this apply to me?
The GDPR regulations apply to anyone who sells or markets to "EU data subjects." In plain English, if a site is collecting names and emails (aka personal information) from people visiting from the EU, there's a very good chance you will be forced to comply on some level.
What is your refund policy?
Our refund policy is always available for you, right here.

Instead, it provides information, guides, trainings, templates and checklists to help you better understand how your business could address some important legal points related to internet privacy and the GDPR. The legal information contained here is not the same as legal advice. Legal advice occurs when an attorney applies and interprets the law to your specific circumstances.

What makes you qualified to write a contract?
Most attorneys who sell templates did not learn directly from the lady who literally wrote the book on Contract Drafting (she taught at my law school). In the past year, I’ve been offered two in-house legal positions at Fortune 500 companies. I declined. I do this because I want to, not because I have to.
These templates are now in use by over 3,000 creatives. That’s a lot of feedback we’ve been able to process and use to improve our templates!
What do I have to do after I download my template?
You'll get plenty of instructions as to how to use your template with your download, and in your Hold My Hand™ guide, we'll also show you how to make the most of your contract. Pinky swear, I send my clients proposals in less than 30 seconds, and so can you
What if it’s not a good fit for my business?
We get it, sometimes things don't work out. That's why we offer a 14-day no-hassle refund for any reason. You don't have to show us anything. You don't have to prove anything. We'll ask you some simple admin questions to get your refund processed and the funds will be back in your account within 6 business days.
