What is a Privacy Policy?

A Privacy Policy is a legal document that discloses the types of personal information collected on your website and how your website uses that information. Privacy Policies give users confidence in your website and business. 

Privacy Policies usually include information about how your business will use and protect financial information like credit card numbers, addresses, and phone numbers. They can also spell out whether a site collects demographic data such as age, gender, income, race, religion, or political affiliation.

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 a Privacy Policy.

When to use an Online Privacy Policy:
