Is it ok to include the same privacy policy in other sites and apps?

We’re often asked by customers whether it is ok to include the same privacy policy in other sites and other apps. Since this is a question that has come up a lot, it should also be interesting to blog readers.

A privacy policy for each site/app

Creating a privacy policy for each site/app is simply the most convenient and correct way to use our service. Most projects/sites/apps don’t do the same thing, that’s why different policies are required. Moreover, if moving forward something changes in one app or site (by for example the addition of features that have an impact upon the privacy policy), it won’t necessarily change the other.

A single privacy policy for multiple sites/apps

An alternative approach to the previous one is to use the privacy policy purchased for your main site/app on other similar websites or apps.

When multiple sites are managed by the same owner, are related to the same business and are identical in terms of data processing or can still be described by a single privacy/cookie policy, you can use a policy common to all.

In this case, generate the privacy policy for the “main” site/app and add a custom clause: select “Create custom service” and indicate that this policy also applies to sites/apps X, Y and Z.

To add a custom clause, log in to your dashboard, choose your policy, select “Add service” and finally “Create custom service“:
