Every Website Needs A Custom Privacy Policy In 2017. Here's Why...

Most countries have laws that require you to tell your users what personal data you collect, and what you do with it, such as:-

  • Data Protection Act (1998) in the UK
  • Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) in Germany
  • PIPEDA in Canada

These laws vary from country-to-country, but generally require businesses and webmasters to explain to users what personal data they collect, and what they do with it.

What Is Personal Data?

Personal data means data such as...

  • Names of customers
  • Email addresses
  • Telephone Numbers
  • Postal Addresses

In short: almost any data about human beings that you or your business uses. That includes:-

  • Sales
  • marketing
  • Order fulfillment
  • HR

The simplest way to comply with the law is to publish a privacy policy on your website.

Why Do I Need A Privacy Policy?

Ignore the law, and you could be inviting a civil lawsuit, an eye-watering fine or - in extreme cases - even criminal prosecution...

In the US, settlements for breaches of privacy legislation, like the CAN SPAM Act, routinely reach millions of dollars.

In the EU, one British company was fined 5.88 million euros (approx $6.46m) for breaching data protection law in Italy.

Elsewhere in the world, extreme breaches of data protection law are even subject to criminal prosecution.

Most importantly, you can live anywhere in the world and still have legal trouble, if you have US or EU users (read: every website online today).


What Is A Privacy Policy?

A privacy policy is a document that discloses to your website visitors details like:

  • What personal data you are collecting
  • What you do with that personal data
  • Which jurisdiction you operate from
  • How personal data will be stored, managed & protected

Your privacy policy fulfills a legal requirement in many countries & jurisdictions to explain all this to your users.


Can I Use A Template Privacy Policy?

Copying & pasting an example privacy policy might be OK... or it could be worse, far worse, than having no policy at all.

What if it contains misleading or inaccurate information about what you do with personal data? We already know the fines can be staggering...

Your privacy policy needs to be tailored to your business and your website, and exactly what you do with your users' personal data.

Copy and paste a template or generic privacy policy, and that's highly unlikely to be the case.


Do I Need A Privacy Policy If I Don't Collect Personal Data?

If you run a business or a website in 2017, it's virtually impossible not to gather personal data - even if you wish not to, or are ignorant of what data you collect.

Unfortunately, ignorance is no excuse for complying with the law in your country.

Any website that...

  • Tracks visitor numbers (eg, Google Analytics)
  • Collects any personal data (eg, email addresses for a newsletter)
  • Shows advertising (eg, Google AdSense)
  • Takes online payments (Like PayPal or credit cards)
  • Uses cookies
  • Has user accounts

...is collecting personal data and ought to be telling their users how their personal data is being used, stored and processed.

Personal data collected often includes:-

  • Names & addresses
  • Email addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • IP address
  • Server logs
  • Geo location data
  • Data/time stamps for site usage

Of course, this means almost every website online today collects personal data. That's exactly why your website needs a privacy policy today.
