Do you need a Privacy Policy?

WordPress 4.9.6 includes a privacy policy generator which allows us to quickly create a sample privacy policy page on your website. If you decide to use this sample privacy policy, you must edit the text to match your business requirements. These are some regulations / situations where your site may need a privacy policy:

  1. California Online Privacy Protection Act
  2. Privacy Shield
  3. EU General Data Protection Regulation (effective May 2018)
  4. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule
  5. Your site uses Google Analytics, or runs online ad campaigns with Google or FaceBook.
