Creating a Privacy Policy

You will need to display a privacy policy on your website to let users know if you collect any information from them and how this is used.

How to create a privacy policy

A privacy policy is a page on your website that outlines how you are collecting users’ information, what information you are collecting and why. It should include how long you keep this information for and where it is stored. You should also include information about who runs the website (i.e. your name) and how users can contact the owner of the site (i.e. an email address of yours that you are happy to display publically for people to contact you on).

Once you have created your privacy policy page, you will need to make this easy to find by adding a link to it on the website’s navigation menu.

WordPress makes it easy for you to create a privacy policy page by allowing you to generate a templated policy that you can then make edits to with information related to your website. To get started, go to Settings > Privacy in your WordPress dashboard.
