Privacy Policy Generator for Entrepreneurs

This article was updated on 24 February 2020

Are you unsure how to come up with this privacy policy without consulting an expensive lawyer? In this post I will show you the easiest privacy policy generator (and cookie policy generator) for entrepreneurs!

I did a lot of research into GDPR, the new data protection act that came into place in May 2018 and found a fabulous privacy policy generator that doesn't break the bank. And that is what I will share in this article, whoop whoop. 

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). 


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?


PRIVACY POLICY GENERATOR OR LAWYER?

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 to help you come up with a tailored privacy policy for a much lower price than a done-for-you solution with a lawyer. 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. The price is $27 per website per year.

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 (for EU website visitors) and CCPA proof (for Californian website visitors).
  • It is available in many languages
  • It is updated all the time, so you don't have to worry about any new legislation. 
  • 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.
  • You don't have to figure out what to add to your privacy policy and you don't have to worry if you're covered. All you need do to is click "scan website" on the Iubenda website, and their privacy policy generator will tell you exactly which articles to add to your privacy policy. And adding them is done with the click of a button.
  • It is super easy to implement: add a piece of code to your website header, scan your website and add the relevant articles to your privacy policy with the click of a button.
  • It is only $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 very promising, for e-commerce, SaaS and marketplace websites. This comes at an additional fee, and I have not had time to try that one out myself. 

So my recommendation is, if you want a privacy policy that's always up to date so you are covered, use the Iubenda Privacy Policy Generator. You will be legally covered everywhere in the world, for a small fee of $27 per year (which is like max 10 minutes of time from a lawyer)!
