This many include information regarding how you’re collecting that data such as through a web form, website analytics, chat widgets, cookies on your website, or Google and Facebook online ad campaigns (this is especially important if you’re using Facebook lead ads).
You also explain how you store data, how long you’ll store it, and what you’ll do with it after the storage time runs out. In addition, your policy might include who has access to the data as well as contact info for people who have questions about your policy.
Privacy policies safeguard not only your users, but your startup as well.
While this is a common practice, it isn’t the best idea.
You will find privacy policies on websites across the internet that look and sound similar, but your policy should reflect your startup’s particular business usage and needs.
It’s important to have one on your startup’s website because it helps your visitors trust you, and it’s required in some states and many countries.
Nearly all websites today collect information from users in one way or another.
You also want to check out your state’s (or country’s) particular laws as some states like California
have more stringent requirements.
