Update and refine your policy when needed
Services generally fall into two categories:
Services related to your own data collection activities (eg. contact forms)
Services related to third-party data collection activities (eg. Google Analytics)
We’ve added a Site Scanner within the services window of the generator which allows you to quickly inspect your site in real-time and identify which services you need to add to your policy. Do note that although our scanner is powerful, it can only scan for technologies that are directly integrated on your pages. You will, therefore, still need to add manually the clauses that relate to data processing practices like newsletter sending.
When figuring out which basic services to add to your policy, it may help to ask yourself the following questions:
What user data do I collect myself and how do I collect it?
Ad services (e.g Google Adsense, Google Ads, AdButler).
For which purposes do I collect these data?
In most cases, the purpose of the data collection is standard and automatically included within the services added, however, there are some instances where you’re required to add additional disclosures. Some common ones are:
Selling goods and services online
Direct Email Marketing (DEM) purposes ( monetizing your newsletter or promoting third-party products and services)
We constantly monitor the major legal regulations and automatically update your policy to keep it valid and up-to-date, however, should you need to manually update your personal information, contact details, custom clauses or add additional services, you can simply log back into your iubenda dashboard and make changes anytime.
