Yes, you do, and here’s why:

Under most countries’ laws, you are legally required to have a valid privacy policy in place to inform users about your data processing activities and how you use their data.

Failing to do so can result in significant penalties, the legal invalidation of the data you’ve collected (for example, email contact list), and harm your website’s reputation.

Furthermore, third parties like HubSpot explicitly require you to have a privacy policy in place in line with applicable law.

When figuring out which essential services to add to your Policy, remember that your privacy policy should be individual to your particular needs and should contain, at the very least:

  • What personal data do my site process, and the reasons why? (Remember IP addresses can be considered personal data).
  • Do I share the data with third parties? This data can include everything from social widgets to payment processors (not sure what services you use? Try our site scanner, and it’s free!)
  • What rights do your users have in regards to their data?
Here’s an example of what a privacy policy could look like:
