Blog hero Legal Pages For An Escort Website

Do I need legal pages for an Escort website

I am a web developer, not a lawyer, so whilst I cannot provide legal advice, I do know that legal pages for an escort website are crucial, just as they are for all websites.

If you’re considering having an escort website, you may wonder whether you need to include legal pages. After all, you just want to showcase your services and attract clients, right?

However, running an escort website is not like running any other type of website. You may be dealing with sensitive and potentially controversial content, so you must take extra precautions to protect yourself and your clients.

In New South Wales, operating an escort service is legally permitted as long as it adheres to state regulations. It is worth noting that regulations regarding adult services and sex work may vary across states.

This article will explore the importance of legal pages for an escort website and what you must include to ensure you operate legally and ethically. We’ll also discuss the potential consequences of not having these pages in place and how they can impact your business. By the end of this article, you’ll clearly understand why legal pages are necessary for any escort website.

What is a Privacy Policy?

A Privacy Policy is a written statement that outlines the collection, usage, and sharing of personal data on a website, along with any other relevant disclosures.

It is necessary to have a Privacy Policy if personal information, such as names and emails, is collected through contact forms or email newsletter sign-up forms on a website.

Why is a Privacy Policy important?

Implementing a privacy policy can prevent potential penalties and legal actions.

Many websites that gather personal information are obligated to have a Privacy Policy due to various privacy laws in the United States and globally.

  • European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • United Kingdom’s Data Protection Act 2018 (UK DPA 2018);
  • Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA);
  • Australia Privacy Act of 1988;
  • The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA);
  • The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA);
  • Delaware Online Privacy Protection Act (DOPPA);
  • Nevada’s Revised Statutes Chapter 603A;
  • Colorado Privacy Act (goes into effect in 2023); and
  • Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (goes into effect in 2023).

The purpose of these laws is to safeguard the interests of consumers in specific states and countries. As a result, businesses operating outside those regions may also have to comply with these laws if they conduct transactions, collect personal data of residents, or offer goods and services in those areas.

Fines for Violations of Privacy Laws are not Cheap

Why do you need to keep your Privacy Policy up to date?

Multiple states have put forth privacy bills that would mandate websites collecting personal information have a compliant Privacy Policy. The bills differ in their disclosure requirements and may result in significant penalties for non-compliance. Some states may also permit consumers the ability to sue businesses for lacking a compliant Privacy Policy.

If your website receives inquiries from different states, your business may need to follow various state privacy laws.


Termageddon is a Privacy Policy generator that can ensure your website’s policies stay up-to-date with any changes in the law.

For $10/month or $99/year, you will receive the following policies to protect your website:

Does my website really need a Privacy Policy?

Since you are collecting personal information (e.g. name and email on your contact form), you are required to have a Privacy Policy. Currently, the following laws require Privacy Policies for most websites:

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR);
  • UK Data Protection Act 2018;
  • California Online Privacy and Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA);
  • California Privacy Protection Act (CCPA);
  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA);
  • Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act (DOPPA);
  • Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A;

There are also about a dozen other states that are proposing their own privacy laws that would require most businesses to have a Privacy Policy and would affect how that Privacy Policy is written, requiring you to make changes on a pretty regular basis (see article).

Agency Atlantic has partnered with Termageddon because we think it’s the best service to be protected from lawsuits and fines. I have spoken with Termageddon and they are sex worker friendly and happy for their policies to be used on Escort and Adult Services Websites.

Why do I need Terms of Service?

Terms of Service are a great way to answer frequently asked customer questions and protect yourself from liability. Terms of Service provide the following:

  • If you sell products and services, it provides information on refunds, order cancellations and returns. This will help answer customer questions and will take them further down the path to actually buying;
  • It will protect your intellectual property by making sure that everyone who goes onto your website knows that your logo, name, etc. are yours; and
  • If you have links to third-party sites on your website (e.g. social media links), it will help protect you in case the user gets a virus from that third-party website.

Do I need a disclaimer?

You need a Disclaimer if you do any of the following on your website:

  • Display advertisements;
  • Display or sell health products (e.g. vitamins and supplements);
  • Participate in affiliate programs (e.g. Amazon Affiliates);
  • Provide health and fitness advice or tips; or
  • Provide any information or tips that could be seen as legal advice.

If you do any of the above, the Disclaimer will help you provide required disclosures, participate in affiliate programs (some programs require you to have a Disclaimer to participate) and will reduce your liability in case something goes wrong.

Legal pages for an Escort website FAQ

Can I write these policies myself?

While technically you could write these policies yourself, we do not recommend that you do so. There are a lot of laws, cases and legal opinions on how to write these policies correctly.

If you have not spent years studying law and cases, it is very likely that the policy you write would be incomplete, incorrect and non-compliant.

There are currently a lot of new privacy laws that are being proposed and passed, meaning that you’d have to constantly stay up to date with these laws and amend your Privacy Policy yourself every time.

This would take a lot of time and effort on your part and would take you away from your actual business.

That’s why we recommend Termageddon – they take care of all of this for you and automatically update your policies so that you do not have to worry about it.

Can I ask my lawyer to write these policies for me?

If you have a lawyer, you should definitely ask him or her to write this up for you.

If you want to ask your lawyer to draft these for you, that’s a great idea but it may be a bit pricey.

Lawyers that do not work in the privacy field often use Termageddon as the solution for their Privacy Policies so that’s something to think about as well.

Is my business too small for anyone to care about this?

Some of the laws that are being proposed or passed do not limit enforcement and liability to large companies only so your small business could be liable as well.

Some consumers do not distinguish between small and large businesses when it comes to protecting their privacy and is less likely to buy from companies that do not respect their privacy.

Can I just copy and paste someone else’s Privacy Policy?

You could try and copy and paste someone else’s Privacy Policy, rewrite it to fit your website and then paste it onto your website.

However, by doing so, you’d be committing copyright infringement, which could get you sued.

You don’t know whether that policy complies with current laws and won’t auto-update for you, meaning that you’ll have to keep track of the changes to the law which are increasing.

Having Termageddon generate a policy for you is much easier, less time-consuming and safer.

Can I use a template?

Using a template you found online is tempting, especially since there are so many free ones out there. However, when you use a template, you can’t be sure who wrote it so you don’t know whether it’s correct or even compliant with the legal requirements.

A template does not automatically update, meaning that you’ll have to keep track of the constantly changing laws, which I’m going to guess is something you don’t have time for. It’s best to use a proven policy generator such as Termageddon because their work is great and they automatically update the policies for you.

How do I know if I’m collecting personal information on my website?

You are collecting personal information on your website if you have a contact form that asks for the user’s name, email, or phone number.

You are collecting personal information if you ask for the user’s email to sign them up for an email newsletter.

My site is pretty secure, does that mean that I don’t need to have a Privacy Policy?

While having a secure site is awesome, it’s not related to the need to have a Privacy Policy.

You need to have a Privacy Policy if you collect personal information on your website, regardless of how secure that personal information is once it’s given to you

There are currently no privacy laws in my state, does that mean that I don’t need a Privacy Policy?

The laws that are in place and that are proposed protect the residents of that state, not the businesses.

People from California aren’t just going to websites of businesses located in California, they go to websites all over the United States. This means that you need a Privacy Policy if you collect personal information on your website, regardless of where you are physically located.
