Making an Online Privacy Policy

  • What is an Online Privacy Policy?

    Information is the currency of the internet, and personal information has become a commodity. If you want to give users confidence in your website, you'll need to have an Online Privacy Policy.

  • What does a Privacy Policy look like?

    An Online Privacy Policy should give users confidence in your website by disclosing the types of personal information collected and how your website uses that information. Privacy Policies usually protect financial information like credit card numbers, addresses, and phone numbers. The written policy can also spell out whether a site collects demographic data such as age, gender, income, race, religion, or political affiliation.

  • What should a Privacy Policy include?

    An Online Privacy Policy is designed to provide users with information about how their personal data is collected, used, and shared. A good Privacy Policy should include the following elements:

    • What information is collected
    • How user information is used
    • Whether the company shares user data
    • Details surrounding the storage and maintenance of user data
    • Changes to the Privacy Policy
    • How to update user information
  • Can you write your own Privacy Policy?

    Yes, you can create a customized Online Privacy Policy by using the Rocket Lawyer document builder. You will answer some questions and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Take a look at these questions before you start. Doing so will help make the process easier:

    • Does the website collect contact or payment information from users?
    • What information does the website collect from visitors?
    • Does the website collect demographic information about its visitors, such as age or gender? If so, what demographic information does the website collect from visitors?
    • Does the website use more advanced methods of studying user behavior, such as tracking mouse movements?

    You might encounter some questions that you can't answer without more research. No problem! You can skip those questions, save your document, and come back later to finish it.

  • Do I need a lawyer to write a Privacy Policy?

    No, you do not need a lawyer to write a Privacy Policy. You can create an Online Privacy Policy through Rocket Lawyer for free and in just a few minutes.

  • What should be included in a Privacy Policy that is GDPR compliant?

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law designed to protect the data and privacy of EU citizens. Any company that transacts with EU citizens must comply with GDPR laws. Privacy Policies that are compliant with GDPR will inform the user of:

    • Who the data controller and data protection officer (if applicable) is and their contact information
    • The legal basis for processing data
    • Whether data is used to make automated decisions
    • Whether data is transferred internationally
    • The users' 8 rights under GDPR
      • The right to be informed
      • The right of access
      • The right to rectification
      • The right to erasure
      • The right to restrict processing
      • The right to data portability
      • The right to object
      • Rights in relation to automated decision making
