If you’re normal, you probably haven’t given much thought as to what makes a website policies generator great. Chances are, you’re just visiting this page to ensure we know a thing or two about privacy.
Spoiler Alert: Yes. Yes, we do.
To answer that question, here’s a quick love story about how Termageddon came to be … yes, a literal love story.
Love at First Site
Our co-founders – Donata and Hans – happen to be married. It all started when they met during the sale of a website development company, and shared their frustrations over Privacy Policies during dinner. Standard first date stuff.
Fortunately for us, the choice to talk about policies instead of Zodiac signs led to a match made in privacy-compliance heaven.
Donata – a licensed attorney – focused her work on privacy and international contracts law and knew first-hand the monotony of writing Privacy Policies manually for clients.
Thus, in 2016, the first child of Donata and Hans’ marriage was born and they named it Termageddon (to the dismay of their mothers).
Since then, Termageddon has generated tens of thousands of policies for happy customers around the globe. They grow up so fast.
