Management of legal documents like Terms of Service and user consent made easy.

This package adds the basic functionality to manage your legal documents and makes them easily accessible for users together with managing user's consent. This package provides server side publications and methods.

Install

Run the following command in your app:

meteor add freedombase:legal-management

Overview

This package has two parts. First is the management of legal documents. Second is the management of user (or other entities) consent to these documents.

Integration into your app

Migration

If you have an existing app you will want to do a database migration for your existing users. This should looks something like this:

1import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';
2import { LegalAgreementCollection } from 'meteor/freedombase:legal-management';
3
4const users = Meteor.users.find({}, { fields: { _id: 1 } }).fetch();
5
6users.forEach(user => {
7  LegalAgreementCollection.insert({ ownerId: user._id, agreements: [], history: [] });
8});

If the users have already agreed to legal documents fill agreements array with the appropriate values.

Collection hooks

1import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';
2import { LegalAgreementCollection } from 'meteor/freedombase:legal-management';
3
4Meteor.users.after.insert((userId, document) => {
5  LegalAgreementCollection.insert({ ownerId: document._id, agreements: [], history: [] }, (err, id) => {
6      if (id) {
7        // the user had to agree to be able to access the registration page
8        // TODO adjust to your needs
9        Meteor.call('freedombase:legal.agreements.agreeBy', 'tos', document._id);
10        // or
11        // Meteor.call('freedombase:legal.agreements.agreeBy', ['tos', 'privacy', 'copyright'], document._id);
12      }
13    });
14});
