Managing legal documents

Note: iOS app v1.29.5+ and Android app v1.30.0+ are for these to display in-app.


You can store legal documents such as Terms of Service or Privacy Policies for your events and apps in Backstage. SpotMe apps will then display these documents (and associated requirements) to participants before they access your app or event.

Creating a legal document

Legal documents are connected to your Organization and can be managed or created from there.

To create a legal document:

  • On click Manage <my organization name>
    • If you're a part of multiple organizations you'll see a Manage my organizations link
  • From the organization page select Legal documents in the sidebar
  • At the bottom of the screen click Create a legal document
  • Fill in details of your legal document and click Create to save it


Creating a legal document in Backstage

Documents without a template

If you already have the legal document either as a text or as a web site, choose None for the template. Other fields are:

  • Title this will be displayed in-app and in Backstage
  • Link if you have a website that hosts your document paste it here
  • Text if you don't have a link, you can paste text of your legal document. HTML is supported. (see our template)
  • Requirements this is where you define acknowledgements participants will have to make. You need at least one.
    • ex. "I accept {{link}}", "I consent to processing of data as per {{link}}"
    • {{link}} will be replaced with a link to your legal document's text

For Privacy Policies our recommendation* is to add following requirements (statements):

  • I acknowledge that I have read and agree to {{link}}. I understand I can withdraw my consent for processing of my personal data at any time.
  • I consent to the processing of my personal data for the purposes described in {{link}}.
