Website Privacy Page? What’s that?
Simply put, a “website privacy page” is a policy located on your website that explains to visitors what information you’re obtaining from them and what you plan to do with that information.
The policy describes in detail how personal information is obtained, stored and released and whether the information is kept confidential. Most businesses with websites use this tool as one way to communicate with their potential customers and website visitors. In a sense, without one, your business may stick out like a sore thumb.
