The New Website Owner's Guide to Privacy Policies
Privacy policies are grouped with cookie notices (notices displayed on websites to tell visitors that the website adds cookies to their browsers), as they both explain how and why a website collects user data.
Privacy policies can be a few lines or tens of pages depending on how the website is built and how detailed they are. Some of the things most privacy policies cover include:
Explanation of terms like the user, website, third parties and any other relevant terms
Clarification on how a website collects data
An explanation of how the data is used once collected
What steps a user can take to ensure their data is deleted
Whether the data will be accessible to third parties.
The best thing about this option is that it is fast, simple and completely free. This makes it a good option for people creating simple websites that do not want to pay for other privacy generators or who just want a simple website to stay online.
