Privacy Policy – Principles

A privacy policy is a statement that discloses some or all of the ways in which a website collects, uses, discloses, processes and manages data of its visitors and customers. A privacy policy also typically includes an explanation of the website's commitment to privacy and the various mechanisms the website has in place to protect privacy.


Different jurisdictions have different legal requirements for what must be included in a privacy policy, so you are responsible for ensuring compliance with laws relevant to your business activities and location.

Matters to be stated in the privacy policy

Generally, a privacy policy will include information such as: what type of information the website collects and how it collects it; an explanation of why the website collects this type of information; the website's practices regarding sharing the information with third parties; how visitors and customers can exercise their relevant privacy rights and rights under data protection laws; and any specific practices regarding the collection of data from minors.
