Termageddon Vs Privyr - Which Privacy Policy Generator is Best?

So you’re looking for a solution to help you with your website policies? Well done! Acknowledging the need to comply with privacy laws and respect the data of your website users is the first big step a website/business owner needs to take. Now that you’ve taken that step, what’s next?


Well, all that’s left to do is find a provider that can scan privacy laws around the globe, identify which ones apply to your website, generate policies with all the required disclosures, and update each of your policies accordingly as laws change or are created.

There’s one clear winner for this undertaking, and that is *drumroll*… a privacy attorney.

HOLD ON, DON’T LEAVE!

Privacy attorneys are ideal because they’re the only ones who can offer legal advice in addition to website policies. Unfortunately, the fees associated with that legal advice can be hard to swallow if your name doesn’t rhyme with Beff Jezos.

That’s why so many people turn to Privacy Policy Generators as a more affordable way to comply with privacy laws.

So, without further adieu let’s compare two of the most popular Privacy Policy Generators: Termageddon and Termify

Interesting point: on the Privacy Policy generator page, Privyr states that “Privyr will never sell, share or make your data accessible to any third parties or affiliates” when referring to the data collected by the form to generate the Privacy Policy. Their Privacy Policy says the same thing. However, their Terms of Service states that they will disclose data in response to subpoenas, court orders or other legal requirements, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies and to protect their rights and property. Their internal Privacy Policy does not even state what data they collect.

Does it help 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. 

Privyr: no. Their Privacy Policy generator asks two questions – company name and your email address. There are no questions to determine what laws apply to you. The Privacy Policy generator page does not claim that the generator will comply with any privacy laws.


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. 

Privyr:

  • You input your company name and your email address and they send you the Privacy Policy. No other questions are asked and no other information is required to create the Privacy Policy. 
  • The Privacy Policy generated is completely templated and filled in with random information. For example, the Privacy Policy states that I collect names, email addresses, phone numbers, location details and any other data such as personal preferences, requirements or comments even though I did not say that I collect any of this data. What’s interesting here is that the policy is supposed to cover advertising but it does not state that I collect how individuals interact with advertisements, nor IP addresses or device identifiers, which are commonly collected through the types of advertisements that the policy is supposed to cover. 
  • The policy also states that I will use the information to manage the customer’s account but I did not select that people can create accounts on my website as that was not a question. 
  • The policy does not even include the URL of the website that this policy is pertaining to; 
  • The policy states that I share data with service providers, for business transfers, with affiliates, with business partners, with other users and with the user’s consent. But again I did not select any of that as the questionnaire did not ask me about it. 
  • The policy does not state whether I sell personal information, the legal bases for processing the information, the privacy rights provided to individuals or any of the other disclosures required by privacy laws. Thus, this policy does not comply with any privacy laws. 
  • Not only does it not comply with any privacy laws, it is also not fit for advertising as it:
    • Doesn’t list the data commonly collected through advertising; 
    • Doesn’t say that the data will be used for advertising; 
    • Doesn’t say that data will be shared with advertising providers.
