Why do companies need a privacy policy?

Companies need a privacy policy because it’s legally required in most countries for websites or apps that collect personal information from users. It’s also a best business practice to be transparent with users about how you handle their data.

Laws that require privacy policies include the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

WordPress Privacy Policy FAQ

Do all websites need a privacy policy?2022-11-16T22:57:15-07:00

No, not all websites need a privacy policy. A privacy policy is a document that explains how  websites collect, use, and share personally identifiable information (PII). Only websites that collect PII and are subject to certain privacy laws need a privacy policy.

PII is information that can be used by itself, or in conjunction with other data, to identify a person. If your website collects PII like any of the following, you may need a privacy policy:

  • Names
  • Social Security numbers
  • Physical addresses
  • Email addresses
  • Birthdays
  • Biometric information

If you collect PII, you should have a privacy policy to comply with different privacy laws of the world.

Do I need a privacy policy on my website?2022-11-16T22:57:58-07:00

Yes, you need a privacy policy on your website. If you collect personal information from users, many laws require you to include a privacy policy on your site that explains your data-handling practices.

How often do I need to edit or update my privacy policy?2022-11-16T22:59:59-07:00

You need to review and update your privacy policy regularly. At a minimum, you should review your privacy policy at least once a year to make sure it reflects your current data processing activities.

Privacy policy reviews are also important when you’re launching a new or updated product or service, using data in a new way, or sharing data with a new partner or vendor.

Some privacy laws require updates after a specific period of time. For example, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) contains an explicit requirement that businesses subject to the law must update the information in their privacy policy or policies at least once every 12 months.

Is it illegal to copy a privacy policy?2022-11-16T23:00:36-07:00

Yes, it is illegal to copy a privacy policy. Privacy policies are protected by copyright, so copying another website’s privacy policy puts your business at risk of legal penalties.

Your privacy policy should fit the unique needs of your website and comply with any applicable data privacy laws around the world.

What is a GDPR privacy policy?2022-11-16T23:01:06-07:00

A GDPR privacy policy is a privacy policy that complies with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. The GDPR requires privacy policies to clearly explain how EEA visitors’ data is collected and processed.

A single privacy policy can be used to comply with both GDPR and other regulations that require privacy policies, like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

WordPress Cookie Consent FAQ

Are cookies personal information under the CCPA?2022-11-16T23:02:50-07:00

Yes, cookies are personal information under the CCPA.

The CCPA classifies cookies as “unique identifiers.” They therefore fall under the CCPA definition of “personal information” because the data cookies collect can be used to recognize a consumer, or a device linked to a consumer.

Do I need a cookie policy on my website?2022-11-16T23:04:22-07:00

No, you do not need a cookie policy on your website. However, some laws such as the ePrivacy Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) require websites to detail their use of cookies to users.

To comply with these laws, websites need to provide users with the following information:

  • What cookies the site uses
  • Why they use those cookies
  • Who provides the cookies (aka the cookie vendors)
  • How users can set their cookie preferences

This can be done by dedicating a section of your privacy policy to cookies, or by having a separate cookie policy.

Is There a Cookie Law in the US?2022-11-16T23:02:00-07:00

No, there is not a cookie law in the US. However, some states have laws that regulate cookie usage as it relates to their residents, like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
