What is a Privacy Policy?

A privacy policy helps you communicate to your audience and customers how you are obtaining their data, and what you are doing with it.

A good Privacy Policy is fit for purpose

Regulators, businesses, and people are increasingly aware of how their privacy and personal data should be collected and used. However, many businesses still fail to explain effectively how they are protecting their users' privacy rights.

Even Big Tech, such as Facebook, is not doing too well either ("Accept this 50-page legal text. Else, you cannot use our services nor access your historical data again"). Sure it turns off its Users, but Big Tech's products have such immense lock-in powers that most people are forced to accept them.

For everyday people and small businesses however, a poorly worded Privacy Policy can turn off your prospective clients. You might be losing opportunities even before they started.  

Drafting a good privacy policy does not have to be difficult however. Be upfront and honest about how you intend to collect data, and what you intend to do with it. Thereafter, use clear simple language to communicate in the published Privacy Policy. When done well, it helps to establish stronger relationship with your Users. Mozilla is doing this so well that Users now see Firefox's privacy measures as a unique value proposition.

In short, don't underestimate a fit for purpose Privacy Policy!  

Specific Situations which require Privacy Policies

Sometimes, you may be specifically asked to provide your Privacy Policy to be able to use certain digital services from Facebook, Google and more. If your privacy measures are not sufficient or poorly communicated, you might be refused from using their services.

• Running ads on social media platforms (even if you run an offline business with only a FB page!)
• Publishing a mobile application on Google Play or App Store

This just further underscores the importance of having your Privacy Policy available from the get go.
