What are the Legal things to take care when creating a Blog Or any website

Hi,
Say we're creating a Blog, or a website, or an app.
What are the legal policies, registrations and copyright checks we should do, to be completely Legal.

Ex: I heard that we've to use a privacy policy on our website, when we use Google Analytics.

So, what are the things like this that we should follow?

Thank you, even the little information that you comment below will help anyone.

One important thing to do if you're publishing your work online would be to check which licenses you want to publish your work under.

I would advise for a Creative Commons licence for any creative content that is not code (Such as the articles on your blog) and an open source licence for your code.

It depends on the services you use. For example, do you use Google Analytics? Then you need to inform your users you’re collecting data about them.

DMCA and copyright takedowns, GDPR-related data rights, COPA in some cases. The list goes on, but those come to mind as things to be aware of as part of a baseline.
