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.

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