{{ footer({
  "links": [
    {
      "URL": "#",
      "label": "Accessibility statement"
    },
    {
      "URL": "#",
      "label": "Contact us"
    },
    {
      "URL": "#",
      "label": "Cookies"
    },
    {
      "URL": "#",
      "label": "Privacy policy"
    },
    {
      "URL": "#",
      "label": "Terms and conditions"
    }
  ]
})}}

Use the footer at the bottom of every page of your service.

Add links to meta information about your service, such as:

  • accessibility
  • contact details
  • cookies
  • privacy policy
  • terms and conditions

Avoid adding lots of links. Keep them to a minimum.
