Privacy Policy


You know that collecting information on visitors to your (or your client’s) website can help tailor goods and services. It offers insight that previously could only be gathered through expensive research. Today, though, data collection can be easy and inexpensive.

But with this type of information, businesses face a daunting task of protecting the data and telling visitors and/or consumers what will be done with the information. Regardless of whether site visitors read the terms and conditions, companies can’t overlook the creation of policies that set out how such information will be used.

Our Template Privacy Policy discloses all the areas you need to, whilst keeping it brief and professional.

Why Do We Need A Privacy Policy?


A privacy policy is a statement or a legal document (in privacy law – various jurisdictions) that discloses some or all of the ways a company, firm or business gathers, uses, discloses, and manages any captured personal customer or client’s data. It fulfills a legal requirement to protect a customer or client’s privacy.

As professionals in the online world, often we’re expected to know all of the rules and regulations when it comes to what a company can and cannot collect or do with the information that is collected, and to help you inform your customers, you need to promulgate your Privacy Policy prominently.

The problem with most companies is that ‘Marketing’ may want to collect certain information and use it as a competitive advantage, ‘Compliance’ want to see an audit trail and your company, may want to convey a different sense of privacy, which could create internal conflict.

Personal information can be anything that can be used to identify an individual, not limited to but including name, address, date of birth, marital status, contact information, ID issue and expiry date, financial records, credit information, medical history, where one travels, and intentions to acquire goods and services.

In the case of a business it is often a statement that declares a party’s policy on how it collects, stores, processes and releases personal information it collects. It informs the client what specific information is collected, and whether it is kept confidential, shared with partners, or sold to other firms or enterprises.

The exact contents of a privacy policy will depend upon the applicable law and may need to address requirements across geographical boundaries and legal jurisdictions. Most countries have their own legislation and guidelines of who is covered, what information can be collected, and what it can be used for. In general, data protection laws in Europe cover the private sector as well as the public sector. Their privacy laws apply not only to government operations but also to private enterprises and commercial transactions.

Any website that does not have a privacy policy can be banned and or blacklisted by search engines, which does not help your business in any way if you want an online presence.
