How to Easily Produce Your Privacy Policy to Stay Safe for 2021

create a website policy

Do you have a website, an online shop or an online booking system? Do you use a newsletter tool like parmail? Inevitably, you collect information about your visitors such as their email address or other personal information.

You are therefore required to post a privacy policy on all your platforms to clearly explain what you are doing with the information you are likely to collect. It is required by law.

Your privacy policy is comparable to a contract. It is intended to notify visitors of your intentions so that they know what to expect when visiting your site.

Privacy policies all seem to be the same, but that is not the case. You can’t copy and paste an X site policy to apply it to its Y site, even if it’s a site similar to ours. Your site is unique and the use you will make of the data you will collect is your own. You must therefore provide a personalized policy, adapted to the reality of your site.

Make your privacy policy easy with a generator

To help you produce a privacy policy, you can use a helpful generator which will generate a template ready to edit.

You will have just to edit some fields and you’re done! You can customize it if necessary.

Important
The privacy policy produced by the sample generator is submitted to you as an indication as to the type of document that must be written to legally exploit your site.

You have an obligation to consult legal counsel to ensure that all of the clauses in the document comply with the law in the jurisdiction in which you operate.

Incorporate your privacy policy into your website

  1. Create a hidden page

The goal is for people to be able to access your privacy policy by clicking on a link at the bottom of the page, but it’s not part of a tab in your menu.

  • In your site creation tool, create a page for your privacy policy. Stick to it the text you’ve produced (and customized as needed) using either generator.
  • At the Pages tab in the site creation tool, click on your new privacy policy page to select it and check Hidden Page.

Thus, your Privacy Policy page exists, but is not available in your website menu.

  1. Make your policy available at the bottom of your site

Insert a foot-to-page text module (on all pages) of your site and write Privacy Policy. Create a hyperlink to your hidden page where your policy is.

You can also take the opportunity to put in other often highly sought-after information such as About and Contact Us.

It is not more difficult if you are using a generator and it will save you a lot of legal potential issues.
