Website Privacy Policy Checklist

Step 1: Gather Information

As you complete your website privacy policy, you will need to provide certain relevant information. This includes the types of information collected (if any); the types of interactions visitors have with the website, such as public posts and product purchases; and the types of tracking technologies used. 

Step 2: Answer Key Questions

Use the information you collected to complete the privacy policy. We make this easy by guiding you each step of the way and helping you to customize your document to match your specific needs. The questions and information we present to you dynamically change depending on your answers and the state selected. Click below to get started.

Step 3: Review and Post Online

It is always important to read your privacy policy thoroughly to ensure it matches your needs and is free of errors and omissions. After completing the questionnaire, you can make textual changes by downloading it in Microsoft Word. If no changes are needed, you can simply download the PDF version and sign. These downloads are available by navigating to the Documents section of your account dashboard.

Next, you need to make the privacy policy available on your website for users to read. Links to the privacy policy should be displayed throughout the site and included within your website terms of use.

Step 4: Periodically Review and Update

It is easy to forget the ins and outs of your privacy policy. Periodically reviewing it will help you stay familiar with any responsibilities or requirements so that you can determine when it needs changes or additions.

As your policies change or new laws pass, you will need to update your privacy policy. At a minimum, websites should do this every year or two, but it is often necessary to make more frequent updates.

Step 5: Complete Related Documents

Websites are also required to have a corresponding terms of use in place. Website terms of use are used to notify visitors of the general rules for using the site. LegalNature's terms of use are customizable and include language consistent with our privacy policy to provide your site with maximum legal protection.
