Why is a Privacy Policy important?

A Privacy Policy is a statement that is placed on a website specifying how a business collects, uses, and manages a user’s personal data.

A user of a website accepts the terms of the Privacy Policy by continuing to use the website after reading this statement. The Privacy Policy also applies to the use of the application that you offer. By clarifying the scope of use of such personal data, you can avoid future disputes concerning data privacy infringement.

A Privacy Policy creates a better online environment by showing users that a business is transparent in the use of their personal data, and it ensures compliance with the law.

How to write a privacy policy?

Because of the broad nature of international privacy legislation, an adequate privacy policy must cover a range of topics and processes. Essentially, it should include what information is collected, how it’s collected & stored, who can access it, who it’s shared with, how to access it, and more.

A Privacy Policy safeguards both the business that drafted it and its users. It makes the online environment honest and transparent, helping businesses cultivate trust and confidence with their consumers. A privacy policy should be easily accessible so that users can locate it at any time and read through the details.

Regardless of how you operate – via a website, a desktop app, or a mobile app, you are advised to have a strategically drafted privacy policy in place. Be sure to update it regularly to reflect changes in the law and automatically inform users.
