What is a Privacy Policy?

A Privacy Policy represents a legal document that stipulates what does an entrepreneur do with all the personal data collected from clients, and how is this data processed.

In 1968, the Council of Europe published a study on the risks of the Internet development, being distressed with the future effects of the WWW on human rights. This represents the beginning of the era of "Privacy Policy." While the name "Privacy Policy" refers to the legal agreement, the concept of privacy and protecting user data is closely related. Such an agreement might also be called:

  • - Privacy Statement;
  • - Privacy Notice;
  • - Privacy Information;
  • - Privacy Page.

In the EU, the GDPR demands that all firms that serve EU citizens have their own Privacy Policy. This law became enforceable in 2018 and has affected all businesses around the world. The law also includes requirements for what must a Privacy Policy contain and how it must be written and displayed. As a rule, if a firm compliant with Privacy Policy requirements of the GDPR, it will, automatically comply with most other privacy laws around the world. That is especially true because the GDPR is severe and demands rigid requirements.
