termageddon or termify which privacy policy generator is right for you?

Google “Privacy Policy Generator” and you’ll be engulfed in options. That’s good right? Well, unfortunately, many of the ones available make false claims and make it hard to figure out what exactly they offer and for what price.

Their website claims that it covers the following privacy laws:

  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations

Automatic updates

Termageddon

  • Automatic updates offered on all policies 
  • Updates have been made on time for every new privacy law and regulations. 
  • Has a state privacy bill tracker 

Termify

  • Their website is a little vague as to whether or not they update policies. The website says Termify “regularly supervise all policies and if we found new updates we will contact you…” The website also states that “no extra charge will be billed to you every time we make an update to your policies,” suggesting that updates do take place, however, it appears they’ve overlooked several of the new laws that have gone into effect since 2020.

Expertise

Termageddon

  • President – Donata – Donata is a licensed attorney and Certified Information Privacy Professional, as well as the Chair of the Chicago Bar Association’s Privacy and Cybersecurity Committee. She is also a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, a member of the American Bar Association’s Science and Technology Council, and a member of the ABA’s Cybersecurity Legal Task Force. 

Termify

  • The website doesn’t list employees and LinkedIn only shows one employee (the Founder and CEO) who appears to have no legal experience.

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. 

Termify

  • You can select if you want your Privacy Policy to be CalOPPA, GDPR, and/or CCPA (outdated) compliant, but this does not help determine whether these privacy laws actually apply to you. In addition, the statements provided can be misleading. For example, it states that CCPA would apply if you collect the personal information of California residents even though there are factors such as revenue numbers that actually determine whether the law applies to your 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 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.

Termify

  • The questions to determine what privacy laws apply to you come at the end of the policy generation process. By asking at the end, the generator fails to ask follow-up questions needed to ensure a website has all the disclosures it needs to comply with those laws.
  • Upon finishing the questions for the free policies, you will be asked to upgrade to a paid plan, which is common in the space, but should still be noted.
  • The final policy automatically includes a lot of information that may not apply to you. For example, it assumes you share information with advertisers, contest sponsors, promotional and marketing partners — even if you don’t.
  • The final policy is missing required disclosures for laws like GDPR, CalOPPA, and CCPA (now CPRA).

Conclusion

Hopefully you found this comparison helpful on your journey to a more compliant website! Obviously, coming from a Termageddon blog post, we’re biased towards our own product as it:

  • Has upfront pricing
  • Is founded by a privacy attorney
  • Has questions that change and adapt depending on previous answers
  • Auto-updates as laws change or new laws go into effect

Hopefully this comparison helps you see that not all Privacy Policy Generators are created equal. And even with its faults, Termify is still a better option than some of the other generators out there.

With that being said, if you feel Termageddon will be a good fit for your website, you can find our Privacy Policy Generator here.
