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

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

  • Montana Consumer Data Privacy Act (MCDPA – effective date October 1, 2024)
  • Texas Data Privacy and Security Act (TDPSA – effective date July 1, 2024)
  • Oregon Consumer Privacy Act (OCPA – effective date July 1, 2024)
  • Delaware Personal Data Privacy Act (DPDPA)

Termify

Their website claims that it covers the following privacy laws:

  • California Online Privacy and Protection Act (CalOPPA)
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations – but not the actual law? 
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations – but not the actual law?

Notes: 

  • See below on Privacy Policy generation process – the generated policy does not actually provide the disclosures required by any of the above privacy laws. 
  • Regulations are used to interpret the compliance requirements of the law. The law itself and regulations must be combined to achieve full compliance.

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 states that “termify.io regularly supervise all policies and if we found new updates we will contact you and let you know about it.” So it looks like they find new updates and just contact you but do not actually update your policies for you (this is super unclear). But then in their help center, they state “no extra charges will be billed to you every time we make an update to your policies.” So maybe they do update the policies? 
  • Could not find any articles talking about new laws or updates for new laws and no posts on social media either. It seems like they have also missed quite a few updates since they started in 2020 so I don’t think that they are updating policies.

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

  • Only found one employee via LinkedIn (The Founder and CEO). No legal experience according to his profile.


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

  • Technically, you can select if you want your Privacy Policy to be CalOPPA, GDPR and/or CCPA compliant, but This does not help determine whether these privacy laws actually apply to you. In addition, the statements provided are misleading (e.g. stating that the 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 that law applies to you. 
  • These questions also come in the middle of generating your policy so the questions do not actually adapt based on the privacy laws that you have selected

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

  • Can select what privacy laws apply to you (3 privacy laws total covered). These questions do not actually determine what privacy laws apply to you and are misleading in their explanations as to who needs to comply with those laws. 
  • The questions to determine what privacy laws apply to me came at the end of the policy generation process, meaning that the policy questionnaire does not ask you the questions required to create the disclosures required by those laws. 
  • For example, I selected that CalOPPA applies to me but was not asked whether my website responds to Do Not Track signals (a disclosure required by CalOPPA); 
  • I also selected that GDPR applies to me but was not asked about the legal basis of processing the information (a disclosure required by GDPR); 
  • I also selected that CCPA applies to me but was not asked whether I sell data (a disclosure required by the CCPA);
  • Their website states that they offer a free plan to receive a preview of your Privacy Policy. However, when I finished answering the questions, I was told to upgrade to a paid plan. This is super deceptive as when I went back to my account, I could load a preview but their process made it seem like I could not do that. 
  • My generated Privacy Policy contains a lot of information that I did not select. For example, it states that I share information with advertisers, contest sponsors, promotional and marketing partners and others. However, I was not asked about this in the questionnaire and did not select any of that. Another example is that I was not asked whether I sell personal information so I did not provide any input on that but my Privacy Policy states that I do not sell personal information (even though I did not say that). 
  • Other super bizarre random information in the policy: 
  • GDPR – the policy does not include all of the disclosures required by GDPR (e.g. it does not list the legal basis of processing personal data, which is required to provide in the Privacy Policy. 
  • CalOPPA – states that California consumers have the right to delete and the right to know and access even though those rights are not provided by the law. Also does not include information about Do Not Track signals, which is a requirement of the law. 
  • CCPA – does not include the right to correct, which is a right provided by the law. Does not provide information as to how to opt out of sharing of personal information for targeted advertising, even though I selected that I perform targeted advertising when filling out the questionnaire.
