Create a Privacy Policy


The latest requirements of the FADP necessitate an updated Privacy Policy that provides all essential details for your users to assert their rights and understand the data processing activities clearly. With our enhanced Privacy and Cookie Policy Generator, you can effortlessly align your online activities with FADP requirements.

Both websites and apps need a privacy policy that is compliant with FADP. It should be clear, easy to understand, and easily accessible.

Maintain FADP Records of Your Processing Activities


You're required to keep records on how you collect, process, and store data as follows:

  1. Note down who is responsible for managing the data.
  2. Clearly state why you're gathering this information.
  3. Describe the types of data you're collecting and whom it's about.
  4. List the people or organizations who will have access to this data.
  5. If you can, mention how long you'll be keeping the data or how you'll decide when to delete it.
  6. Provide a simple explanation of what you're doing to keep this data secure.
  7. If the data is going to be shared outside the country, you need to specify which country it's going to and what safeguards are in place.

And don't forget, maintaining this list isn't a one-time thing; it's part of ongoing compliance with FADP requirements.

Do I need a cookie banner for FADP?

No, FADP adopts an opt-out approach, so a cookie banner isn't specifically required. However, our tool offers a dedicated option for displaying a cookie banner if you wish to do so.

What if I also have to comply with GDPR or LGPD?

Our tool offers geolocation features to apply different consent mechanisms based on user locations. Alternatively, you can apply a global prior-consent approach.

Can I customize the cookie banner myself?

Yes, enable the Switzerland option in Manual Configuration within the Privacy Controls and Cookie Solution Generator to customize it to your needs.
