Privacy Policy Generator for GDPR, CCPA & ePrivacy

A privacy policy is a document that explains to your website visitors what type of data you are collecting and what you are doing with it. It could contain the following information:

  • The type of data you are collecting
  • How you collect the data (through a form, a plugin, cookies, etc.)
  • What you do with the data and the purposes it serves to your company
  • For how long you store the data
  • Where the data is stored
  • Who has access to customers’ data
  • How you protect their data

Here is an example of a privacy policy, created using our privacy policy generator, which you can easily embed to any website

Do I need a privacy policy?

Yes, you do need a privacy policy and with our privacy policy generator the process is seamless. In theory, there is no law that strictly requires website owners to have a privacy policy in all circumstances. But, there are so many privacy laws around the world regulating certain aspects of consumers’ privacy only in a certain territory, which makes things quite complicated for website owners. To remove all the guessing, if you should provide a privacy policy for visitors from certain countries, the wisest decision is to have a proper privacy policy in place. The easiest way to do this is to use a privacy policy generator.

Here are a number of reasons why you should include a privacy policy on your website:

  • It may be required by law. Many countries and some US states require having a privacy policy if you live in their jurisdiction or you collect data from their residents. Just to give you an idea of what you could have trouble with:
    • The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires privacy policy for visitors coming from the EU countries (See our GDPR page)
    • The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule requires privacy policy for websites collecting data of children younger than 13 years
    • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires all institutions significantly engaged in financial activities to provide their users a clear information on how they handle their data
    • The California Online Privacy Protection Act requires website owners who collect data of California residents to put a privacy policy in place
    • Some other US states also have privacy protection rules in force. Some of them may require a privacy policy, while others only imply a need of one.

None of these or any other privacy-related law requires you having a privacy policy in all circumstances. But, if you don’t have one, and a EU visitor or a child from the US lands on your website, and you collect their data in breach of these acts, you’ll get in trouble.

  • It may be required by third parties. Many tracking services require a privacy policy if you want to use them. These include Google Analytics, Facebook Ads, Amazon Affiliates, and others.
  • It improves your trust factor. Google, Bing, and other search engines rank  trustworthy websites better. With a privacy policy in place, your trust factor will go through the roof.
  • It is the right thing to do. You can behave ethically even when the law doesn’t require to do so. Being transparent about the data you collect and handle will go a long way to establish a trust connection between you and your visitors and customers.

What if I already have a privacy policy?

That is not a problem. You have two choices:

  • Copy and paste your current privacy policy in our interface
  • Leave our policy feature alone

Make sure you update your privacy policy manually as you change the plugins on your website. Our automated scanning solution cannot automatically update the manually added privacy policies, but only those created by our generator.

How can I install the privacy policy to my website?

There are three simple ways to install the privacy policy on your website:

  • Link. We will give you a link to embed on your website.
  • Embed code. We will give you a shortcode to embed on your website and generate the privacy policy there.
  • Script. You can add a small script on your website and create a small bottom with a link to the privacy policy. You can customize this bottom to fit your brand.
