Well… If you’re starting any kind of company today (yep, even a yoga business), the answer is likely “yes, you really do”.
Before we dive in deeper, let me just quickly state this little legal disclaimer:
Nothing in this article should be taken as legal advice. I advise that you consult with your own attorney to ensure you comply with your local law.
Finally, privacy policies often include the security policy you use to protect the data you’re collecting. This usually means an outline of the security measures taken to safeguard customer data by you, or the vendors you use.
- Your relevant contact information.
- What information you collect and the basis for collecting it (for example when you collect email addresses so people can sign up to your newsletter)
- What you do with the data (including who else gets access).
- The visitors’ rights under the GDPR.
Again, I emphasize that you should consult with an attorney on what type of policy is best for your needs.
You should create a standalone page on your website that includes the policy.
Put links to that page in your footer navigation on your website and on any other opt-in pages, sales pages, webinar registration pages, etc.
