Why you need a privacy policy page added to your website this 2020

 

What is a “Privacy Policy”?

 

Primarily, a privacy policy allows your site visitors to become aware of the data you’re collecting and what you do with it. It shows how the data is being collected, where it is stored, the policy for keeping the data, and who can access the data.

 

Privacy policy mostly includes security policies you can use to protect all the data you’re collecting. Typically, it’s an outline of a security measure that safeguards your customer’s data.

 

So, ultimately, a privacy policy safeguards both you and your site visitors. It gives transparency on everything that happens in your site.

 

 

What to Include in Your Privacy Policy Page?

 

Now, after knowing what a privacy policy is for, here are the things you need to include in it.

 

  • Visitor/customer’s right under GDPR
  • Information about what is the data you’ll be collecting (e.g email address so they can sign-up to your newsletter)
  • What you’ll do with the data
  • Where the data is stored
  • Your relevant and updated contact information (in case your visitor needs to get in touch with you)

 

The inclusions and security policy of your privacy policy depends on you and your business security needs. If you’re unsure of what to do about it, consulting a professional digital agency or an attorney to assist you will be a great idea.

 

 

Where should you put your privacy policy?

 

Your privacy policy should have a dedicated standalone page on your website. This way, you’ll be able to separate it from your products and services, thus, your security policies can be emphasised on it.

 

Just be sure to put its link on all your website’s pages so your visitors can access it easily. It can be placed on your page’s footer or header navigation bar. A dedicated button that will direct your visitor to your privacy policy page will also do.

 

These are just a few of the reasons for adding a privacy policy page into your website this coming 2020. Hopefully, we’ve answered your questions.
