by Feb 3, 2020WordPress Tutorials - WP Tutorials, Tools

To protect yourself, your business, and the data of your website’s visitors it’s highly recommended to place a privacy policy on your website.

The Privacy Policy Tool in WordPress will help you and your website visitors understand all the ways your website collects user information.

Many countries are required by law to disclose this information to their visitors. Some ways your site may collect user information are collecting email addresses, Google Analytics tracking.

WordPress’ Privacy policy tool gives you a great outline to get started. It currently includes the following:

  • Who we, (your company, organization or individual), are
  •  What personal data we collect and why we collect it
  • Who we share your data with
  • How long we retain your data
  • What rights you have over your data
  • Where we send your data
  • Your contact information
  • Additional information

WordPress comes with a basic privacy policy page generator that anyone can use and edit for their business. 

  1. First, go to Settings > Privacy. WordPress provides a privacy policy page draft for you. You can either select to use the draft or generate a new version.
