If you Google, “Privacy Policy generator” you’re going to be flooded with options. That’s good, right?

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. 

Iubenda

  • Iubenda has a form designed to help you identify which laws apply to your website, but it only asks a few questions. As a whole this privacy law identifier:
    • Does not say what laws you actually need to comply with (e.g. it says U.S. privacy laws apply to me but does not say which ones)
    • Is missing key questions to actually determine what privacy laws apply to a website

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 donā€™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.

Iubenda

  • Does not ask enough questions to determine what privacy laws apply to a websiteĀ 
  • The purposes for processing includes random, default information instead of asking
  • Certain text doesn’t correct itself as you go. For example, selecting a policy is for a website won’t change the fact that the final policy mentions that it’s for an application.
  • Policies did not include the disclosures required by VCDPA (e.g. right to appeal privacy rights decision)
  • Not asked whether we sell personal information (required under CPRA)

Conclusion

As a Termageddon blog, we’re obviously big fans of Termageddon because we:

  • Are founded by a privacy attorney
  • Track new privacy laws and automatically updates customers’ policies as laws change
  • Use a questionnaire that changes and adapts its questions depending on what answers are provided
  • Keep pricing straight-forward and clear

All that said, Iubenda does several good things that also helps it stand out above other Privacy Policy Generators that are out there (namely, brings on legal expertise to help).

Hopefully this helps in your search tor the ultimate website policies tool. If Termageddon sounds like a good fit for you, you can use our Privacy Policy Generator here.
