Privacy Policy Generator for Entrepreneurs

May 14, 2019

Are you looking for a privacy policy generator that is GDPR proof? In this post I will show you the easiest way to generate your privacy policy for your website, regardless of the type of business you have!

If you've been in business for a while, then maybe like me you still remember May 2018 vividly? GDPR came into effect and it caused a LOT of problems for online entrepreneurs, including many of us having to throw out a big part of our email lists because they were not GDPR proof.

A second challenge was, that we all now needed a GDPR proof privacy policy. I did a lot of research into GDPR and found a fabulous solution for generating a GDPR proof privacy policy, which I will share in this article.

But before we do that, let's go through some questions

WHAT AGAIN IS GDPR?

GDPR is a law that protects the privacy of EU residents. It came into place in May 2018 and it governs how you need to protect consumer data (for example in your privacy policy, in your database, in your website cookies, which data to store etc). 

WHEN DO I NEED A GDPR PROOF PRIVACY POLICY?

Any website that has visitors from inside the EU is subject to GDPR and thus needs a GDPR proof privacy policy.

So EVEN if you are in the USA, or Canada, or Asia, or anywhere in the world, if you have website visitors from inside the EU, you are subject to GDPR. The only way to by pass this is to actively block traffic from the EU. I've seen some websites do this, but I personally think this is a bit over the top, I mean why shut out a whole continent, just because you have to stick to some rules?

HOW DO I COME UP WITH A GDPR PROOF PRIVACY POLICY?

You can hire a lawyer to help you create your privacy policy, but this is ex-pen-sive. Or you can use an online Privacy Policy Generator. The BEST online privacy policy generator I've found is Iubenda. Iubenda is a subscription based solution, that is continuously updated to ensure that you are always up to date with the latest laws and legislation.

Here's why I love iubenda (and why I am an affiliate, links in this article are affiliate links, you will get 10% off your first purchase if you purchase through me):

  • It is GDPR proof
  • It is available in many languages, so if your website is in another website then that is no problem.
  • It is updated all the time, so you don't have to worry about any new legislation. It for example is up to date on the European laws of GDPR and the New California's Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
  • It covers all the different systems we use as online entrepreneurs, like analytics, retargeting, ads, user research etc etc., so you are sure to be covered.
  • It is super easy to implement (just add a piece of code to your website header).
  • It is $27 a YEAR, which is a tiny fraction of what it would cost to hire a lawyer to draw up a custom privacy policy.
  • It also comes with cookie policy (another page your website needs) and a cookie consent (that little annoying popup your website needs that shows visitors what you are doing cookie-wise. These are included in the $27 fee.
  • There's also a terms and conditions generator, which looks promising. I have not had time to try that one yet. 

So my recommendation is, if you want a GDPR proof privacy policy, use the Iubenda Privacy Policy Generator and you will be legally covered everywhere, for a small fee of $27 per year (which is maximum 10 minutes of time from a lawyer)!
