A website privacy policy is a published statement concerning the way in which a website owner will collect and process the personal information of users. Privacy policies are important not just from a legal perspective, but also from a usability/marketing perspective.

The first few sections of this website privacy policy can be seen here:

Precedent Website Privacy Policy

The most important provisions of this policy include:

  • Information collected: exactly what kinds of personal information are collected by the website operator?
  • Cookies: does the website use cookies? If so, are they session cookies or persistent cookies, and what are they used for? Are any third party cookies served by the website?
  • Using personal data: how will personal data collected through the website be used? For example, will it be used for marketing purposes?
  • Disclosures: to whom - and in what circumstances - will personal information be disclosed to others?
  • Security: what measures will the website owner take to secure the personal information?
In full, the website privacy policy includes these sections: (1) What information do we collect? (2) Cookies, (3) Using your personal information, (4) Other disclosures, (5) International data transfers, (6) Security of your personal data, (7) Policy amendments, (8) Your rights, (9) Third party websites, (10) Updating information, (11) Contact, and (12) Data controller.

Note: in general terms, data protection and data privacy laws are contained in detailed national statutes and regulations. Data protection law in the European Union is largely based on laws promulgated at the EU level. As with our other templates, this template has been drafted by English-qualified lawyers and therefore reflects the position in the EU. If you are using this template outside the EU, it will likely need a greater degree of adaptation.

The policy is 4 pages long. If you buy this policy, it will be delivered via email link in downloadable MS Word (.doc) format immediately following purchase.

Web Privacy Policy FAQ

Web Privacy Policy FAQ

Does the privacy policy include a consent to the use of names and email addresses for marketing purposes?

The privacy policy includes an optional consent covering email newsletters and other marketing communications. Of course, as with any data protection or data privacy consent, applicable law may require something more definite that a sentence in a privacy policy.

What disclosures are included in the policy in relation to cookies from third party advertisers?

As an example of the type of disclosure that may be useful in relation to third party advertising cookies, the policy includes an AdSense interest-based advertisements disclosure. The disclosure highlights that the website publishes this type of advertising, and outlines briefly how cookies are used to tailor advertisements to the interests of the user. It goes on to mention the ways in which a user might avoid being tracked, for example by using the Google browser plug-in or and opt-out cookie.

Does the deal with the new EU laws on consent to the use of cookies?

It is probably not possible to gain consent to the use of cookies under the new EU laws simply by including a consent statement in a privacy policy, particularly where the policy itself is not expressly accepted by the user, for instance by means of a check box. Notwithstanding this problem, the policy does include the following statement: "by using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy".

Professional documents

The contract forms and precedents on this website are designed for use by lawyers and other contract professionals. They are jurisdiction-neutral, and need to be adapted for a particular jurisdiction before use. Because of the application of substantive national laws and national rules of interpretation, non-professionals should avoid using our forms to create legal documentation unless the legal documentation will be checked by an appropriately qualified lawyer before execution or use.
