About GetTerms.io

GetTerms.io is a free, generic website privacy policy generator, based on typical, reasonable and fair use of information. Whether you use Wordpress, Shopify or more, we can generate simple terms & conditions and privacy policy documents for your website, ready to adapt to your needs. For the best privacy policy generator, choose from the following GetTerms.io options:

Questions, answered.

Unlike with website terms, privacy policies may be required by law in the region where you operate. In any case, it’s best practice to have a data protection privacy policy, especially if you collect any sort of private data from your users (e.g. payment details, address and phone number, cookie data).

Additionally, you may need a privacy policy to use third-party APIs and services like Instagram, or to list your app in a commercial marketplace like Google Play.

Strictly speaking, you don’t need a terms of service statement. It’s not required by law, but it’s generally wise to include one on your site to cover the expectations and agreements between you and your users. Some organisations may even request you make one available before you can enter into a relationship with them.

Most of the time, site owners and users behave in a fair and reasonable fashion, making your terms & conditions info redundant. However, in unusual circumstances, such as those involving abuse, intellectual property theft or unlawful behaviour, having your terms & conditions stated explicitly can offer basic protections for you and your business by limiting your liability and clarifying your rights over the content you publish.

Websites sometimes collect information about their visitors for content publishing, analytics, promotional or contact purposes. It's good practice to let your users know how you store and use their data. Whether you run a static site or a site powered by Wordpress, Wix, Squarespace or any other content management system, you can use GetTerms.io to generate a generic privacy policy to share with your users.

If your website engages users in the European Economic Area, you may be obliged to publish a GDPR Compliant privacy policy. Of course, it takes more than just a privacy policy to be fully GDPR-compliant, but a clear and concise privacy policy outlining how and why you collect personal information is a good place to start.

No. Policies generated by GetTerms.io may be used without credit or a link back. Every GetTerms.io purchase is valid for one (1) domain, and you are free to change and adapt the content for your specific purpose.

With our simple and fast online generators, you can generate a Website privacy policy customised for your business in under two minutes. Written by humans and approved by lawyers, our policies have saved thousands of businesses around a world a heap of time.

No account required! Just add your company information and policy disclosure preferences, and we'll use these to generate your policy.

We have basic free policies to suit most websites and businesses that don’t deal with personal information. We also offer paid options, starting at just USD$25, plus optional add-ons available at the time of purchase.

Why every business needs a Website privacy policy in 2021

The World Wide Web has revolutionized the way we access information, socialise, and do business. But online privacy is an ongoing concern for both regulators and consumers.

From sign-up forms to website cookies, almost every online service requires users to share information about themselves.

Naturally, this has generated a host of privacy & policy issues, prompting governments around the world to regulate the collection, usage and sale of user data.

One of the earliest privacy laws passed in the US was the 2003 California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), which required businesses to have a privacy policy featured on their website.

As the Internet and technology continues to evolve, however, regulators have had to play catch up with new challenges and gray areas around the way businesses and consumers track and exchange data, particularly in a globalized world.

What is the GDPR?

In 2016, the European Union enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): the most comprehensive data privacy legislation that has been passed to date.

The GDPR consists of 99 articles that updated and expanded previous laws around data processing in the EU.

“Data processing” refers to the “collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.” (European Commission).

It also provides EU citizens with a set of eight “data rights” that give them more control over their personal data and privacy.

For example, a person has the right to withdraw previously given consent for their data to be processed by an organization.

The reason why the GDPR has received so much attention from companies and regulators is because it has such a broad scope.

Any organization, regardless of where they are located, may need to comply with the GDPR if they process the data of someone based in the EU.

Unlike previous privacy policy laws, the GDPR is particularly harsh when it comes to enforcement.

Since coming into effect in 2018, regulatory authorities have handed down million-dollar fines to companies like Google and Facebook for failing to properly disclose how they were using people’s personal data, amongst other egregious offences.

Complying with the GDPR isn’t easy, but the laws have significantly changed the way many organizations manage user privacy and pushed for higher standards of transparency and data security.

Why is generating a privacy policy important?

Today, almost every business is legally required to have a privacy policy.

Given that users can access your website or app from any location around the world, it’s likely that your business will need a policy to avoid infringing on any local laws.

Including an online privacy policy statement on your website also builds trust with users, as it shows that your business takes their privacy & data protection seriously and explains the steps you take to protect their personal information.

What does a privacy policy need to include?

Your online privacy policy should clearly explain to users how their personal information is collected, used and protected by your business.

Here’s some of the key details your policy needs to cover:

  • The types of personal data your business collects about users.
  • How you collect, store and secure user data.
  • How users can access, update or request the deletion of any personal data collected about them.
  • Whether your website uses cookies and why.
  • Whether you share user data with any third parties.
  • How users are notified of updates to your policy.
  • The measures users should take to protect their personal information while using your website or app.
  • Your contact details, so that users can make enquiries about their data or submit a privacy complaint.

Back in the early days, most privacy policies for websites were excessively long and difficult to understand, and companies didn’t make it easy for people to opt-out of data collection and tracking.

In order to save time and effort, a lot of website owners also tended to copy and paste generic website privacy policies from other websites, which resulted in a lot of inaccurate policies and essentially defeated the purpose of having one in the first place.

At GetTerms.io, we help online businesses to quickly and easily achieve compliance through our free privacy policy generator.

In 2020, however, protecting your customers’ privacy takes more than simply ticking a box.

To avoid violating the litany of data protection laws that exist today, you should always put user privacy at the forefront of your business operations.
