Easy Privacy Policy Generator for GDPR Compliance

May 3, 2018

On May 25th 2018, a new European Union privacy regulation—known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—will come into effect. The aim is to protect the personal data of all EU citizens. Whatever the location of your business, if you own a website with EU visitors, you will want to make sure your website is GDPR compliant.
 

To meet GDPR requirements, make sure to create a privacy policy, letting visitors know how your site processes and uses visitors' data—including information on cookies and other tracking technologies.

As a 
Denver Website Designer, adding a Privacy Policy on websites is part of the design process. Having a Privacy Policy on your website is an important but often overlooked page to have on company websites. If you don't already have a Privacy Policy, here is a simple and free tool that generates a Privacy Policy that you can then copy and paste to use on your website:

Basically, if you have a site and you want it to be GDPR compliant, here are the simple steps we recommend:

 

  • 1. Contact Forms: Add a checkbox to all forms that asks users to agree that you are collecting their data and agreeing to the terms in your privacy policy.
     

  • 2. Create Privacy Policy for page – Link to your privacy policy on your form (ideally next to the agreement checkbox)
     

  • 3. Form to Opt Out of User Data Storage: On the Privacy policy page, include a form users can fill in to have you remove their data if they wish. Setup a notification from the form so you get an email notification, and remove their information if requested.
     

And please, don't abuse people's information! The people who have been abusing it have caused all this extra aggravation for the rest of us. Be good. Don't spam!



Not simultaneously bored and annoyed with all the GDPR compliance demands yet?  ;)
