It can be confusing, costly, and time-consuming to stay on top of all of the laws around privacy policies for websites. For example, what are they, exactly? Do you really need one? How do you get one?
This post will clear the air.
It all boils down to whether or not you collect personal information from users on your website. Chances are, you do.
Small business websites usually collect personal information through:
Contact us forms
Email newsletter sign-up forms
Account creation portals
1. It keeps you out of legal hot water
2. It builds trust with your potential customers
Demonstrating that you are willing to follow privacy laws can help retain existing customers and can even gain you new customers as well.
91% of Americans would prefer to buy from companies that always guarantee them access to their PII
It’s well worth the effort to show your prospects you value their privacy.
Does Drio create privacy policies for web design clients?
No, we do not create privacy policies for our clients. The rules around website privacy policies are ever-changing so we we are not in a position to offer legal advice.
In the past, we’ve let clients know that the best course of action would be to consult with their lawyer. But, this is often unrealistic.
Many of the service-based businesses and nonprofits we work with, while well-established, don’t have legal counsel in their back pocket. And, to make matters more complicated, many lawyers are not well-versed in the legal requirements of PII, at least when it comes to your website and all of the online tools that you are using.
Fortunately, we partner with an awesome team that provides an affordable solution that won’t break the bank and will keep you and your website protected from potentially costly lawsuits.
The investment is $99/year but we have a special deal that will give you 10% off your first year.
