The basic requirements for a privacy policy are quite simple. You need to list all the ways you collect or intend to collect user information on your website. 

A simple privacy policy page should contain the following information: 

  • Information you collect about users visiting your website.
  • Methods used to collect information, e.g. cookies and web beacons, sign up, registration, comment forms, etc.
  • Mention all third-party advertisers collecting user information on your website like Google Adsense.
  • Include links to the privacy policy of each advertising program you participate in.
  • How users can block cookies and opt-out of third party advertisements.
  • Your contact information so that users can reach out if they have questions.

There are many websites on the internet that allow you to automatically generate text for your privacy policy or terms of service pages. 

WordPress itself comes with a basic privacy policy generator that you can use. 

You can also take a look at WPBeginner’s privacy policy page as an starting point. Simply replace all references to WPBeginner and our parent company with the name of your website or business.
