GetTerms

  • No information regarding employee expertise on website or LinkedIn.

Does it help you figure out what privacy laws apply to you? 

Termageddon

  • Yes. The first page of the Privacy Policy questionnaire helps determine what privacy laws apply to you. The rest of the questionnaire is based upon the disclosures required by those laws. 

GetTerms

  • No, the interface just asks you which of the three laws they cover that you’d like to comply with.

Privacy Policy generation process

Termageddon

  • First page of the questionnaire actually helps determine what privacy laws apply to you; 
  • The questionnaire includes all of the questions needed to create the disclosures required by the privacy laws that apply to you; 
  • We don’t make assumptions nor insert generic information for these disclosures; 
  • Privacy Policy combines all privacy laws that apply to you and does not include separate sections for each privacy law because that practice makes no sense.

GetTerms

  • Asks you to select the privacy laws that apply to you at the very bottom of the questionnaire (This isn’t ideal as there needs to be follow-up questions to ensure the policy has all the disclosures required by those laws)
  • Fails to ask how a website secures personal information
  • Policy contains several examples of default text that assumes certain information that was never verified by the generator
  • No questions about the legal bases of processing information (required under GDPR)
  • No questions about whether a website sells personal information (required by CPRA)

Conclusion

Hopefully this blog helps you narrow down your options for the perfect Privacy Policy Generator for you. As a Termageddon blog, we obviously recommend Termageddon because it:

  • Is founded by a privacy attorney
  • Adapts and changes depending on how you answer questions
  • Automatically updates all policies when laws change or go into effect
  • Offers a single price for all the policies a website needs (no up-charges as you go through the generation process)
  • Is trusted by thousands of web agencies who use Termageddon to protect their own clients

If you think Termageddon meets your needs, you can find our Privacy Policy Generator here.
