Legal notice

The explanations and information provided on this page are only general and broad explanations and information on how to write your own Privacy Policy document. You should not consider this article as legal advice or recommendations on what you should actually do, because we cannot know in advance what are the specific privacy policies you want to establish between your business and your customers and visitors.

Privacy Policy: basics 

That said, a Privacy Policy is a statement that discloses part or all of the practices of collection, use, disclosure, processing and management of data from users and clients of a website. It also usually includes a statement about the website's commitment to protect the privacy of its visitors or clients, and an explanation of the different mechanisms that the website applies to protect privacy. 

Different jurisdictions have different legal obligations on what should be included in a Privacy Policy. You are responsible for ensuring that you comply with the legislation relevant to your activities and location. 

What should be included in the Privacy Policy document

In general terms, a Privacy Policy usually addresses these types of issues: the types of information that the website collects and the way in which it collects the data, an explanation of why the website collects this type of information, what are the practices of the website to share information with third parties, the ways in which your visitors and clients can exercise their rights in accordance with the relevant privacy legislation, the specific practices related to the collection of data from minors and much more.
