A Privacy Policy is a legal statement that specifies what the business owner does with the personal data collected from users, along with how the data is processed and why.

This marks the start of what we know now as a “Privacy Policy”. While the name “Privacy Policy” refers to the legal agreement, the concept of privacy and protecting user data is closely related.

This agreement can also be known under these names:

  • Privacy Statement
  • Privacy Notice
  • Privacy Information
  • Privacy Page

Who needs a Privacy Policy

Any entity (company or individual) that collects or uses personal information from users will need a Privacy Policy.

A Privacy Policy is required regardless of the type of platform your business operates on or what kind of industry you are in:

  • Web sites
  • WordPress blogs, or any other platforms: Joomla!, Drupal etc.
  • E-commerce stores
  • Desktop apps
  • Digital products.

Why do I need a Privacy Policy?

There are three reasons you need a Privacy Policy:

  1. First, you must inform users of the risk of using your website or app.By outlining the type of personal information you require and describing how you use it, potential users can make an informed decision on whether the risks of sharing their information are worth the benefits of your website/app.
  2. Second, making expectations clear protects you from liability.When you have well-defined terms and circumstances defined in a Privacy Policy, users cannot claim you used their information without consent.Even if users do not actually read the Privacy Policy, using clickwrap and other forms of acceptance assures they accept the terms–even if they did not review it.
  3. Third, the international character of websites and apps require knowledge of laws outside your own jurisdiction.There are countries where your product may be purchased or downloaded that require a Privacy Policy before you request a name or credit card number.
