How To Create Privacy Policy & Disclaimer For Your Blog

Kyle Judkins 20-01-2009

how to create privacy policyMost professional blogs have a privacy and disclosure policy. These policies can be very important to your blog, as they inform your readers about some of the more legal aspects of your website.


However, writing your own privacy policy or disclaimer can be extremely hard unless you’ve had years of law school or have extra cash to pay a high priced lawyer.

I’ve found two free websites that will take the place of your lawyer and help you create a privacy policy and disclaimer for your site.

Why Do I Need a Privacy Policy?

Most people online like their privacy and like to keep their information to themselves. The thought of giving out your Social Security number or email and having it be used in a way you don’t approve of scares many Internet users.

Privacy policies let all of your readers or users know exactly what you do with their data.  If you don’t plan to do anything with it, it is good for your readers to know that.  This might make them more likely to sign up for your service or whatever your website does.

How To Create Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy Generator makes it extremely easy to make your privacy policy.  All you need to do is type in your company name, mark if you accept credit cards and enter your email address.

Why Do I Need a Disclosure Policy?

Many bloggers and website owners around the Internet get paid for their content, so their opinion or articles could have a slight bias.  A disclosure policy lets your readers know exactly how you are compensated and how that affects your articles and services.  This makes your readers more comfortable with the content you provide.


How To Write A Disclaimer

You can generate your disclosure policy or disclaimer by visiting this website.  All you have to do is answer six easy steps. Within these steps you will fill in a few blanks and answer a few questions. Once that is done, your disclosure policy will be presented to you. It really is that easy.

These two websites allow you to quickly and easily make a privacy and a disclosure policy. My privacy and disclosure policies were made using these websites, and I feel confident using them.

    Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your blog. You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!

    Good to see some posts and articles on this side of designing a web site and blog. Always usually left unnoticed, but important to get right, depending on your site ofcourse.

    But i believe Google does give extra points for sites that have a privacy policy in the header or footer.

    Don't quote me on that,

    An additional point w.r.t. the privacy policy is that required by adsense publishers about cookies and web beacons.
