Your Website Needs A Privacy Policy

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

No matter what type of business your have, having a PRIVACY POLICY on your website is a must-have.

From an early stage entrepreneur to large scale enterprise, make sure your privacy policy is:

1. Easily accessible

It's common practice these days to have the words "Privacy Policy" in the footer and linked to a hidden page with the information.

2. Up-to-date

Be sure to check your privacy policy to be sure it contains current information. It's a good idea to have something like "Last updated xxxx" so people know it's not outdated. Check to be sure the right emails are listed and any other time sensitive information.

3. Easily understood with clear and concise language

No one likes a bunch of legalese and while it's good to be accurate, sometimes writing in such a way that your user will actually understand it is simple common sense. This also helps avoid confusion and builds trust.

4. Informs users of what type of data is being collected and how it's being used

Be specific with what information you are collecting and how you are using it. If you're collecting first name, last name, email, phone, address, etc. be sure you let people know exactly what's being collected from your site. Also, be sure to let them know how you are using their information. Will their information be stored in your contact list? Are you selling their information? Be transparent here.

5. Informs users of how to opt-out

Always give people an out. No one wants to sign up for something and not be able to opt-out. Give them the freedom to choose whether or not they want to continue getting information from you once they sign up.
