If you’ve done business with anyone, ever, at some point in time you probably received a notice in the mail stating the company’s privacy policies. This is commonplace with financial services businesses, such as your insurance company or bank. While your business may not need to have an elaborate, printed and mailed policy, it’s a good idea to clarify what data is being collected about your website visitors, and what your practice is with any data you collect. Having a posted policy helps build trust with visitors and demonstrates your concern with visitor and customer data security.
Here’s a few providers to check out, but please do your own due diligence before using!
