Asked on Apr 21, 2021

When do you recommend I draft a custom Privacy Policy for my site?

I downloaded a free privacy policy and we are starting to get more users on our site. I am not sure when I would need to draft something custom.

The Privacy Policy should be located on your website from the moment your website is "up in the air" therefore it is recommended to contact a lawyer to draft it at least 2 weeks prior to the launching of the website. The privacy policy provides information to visitors of the website on the operators of the website collect, use, store and protect the personal data of the visitors. Personal data can be information provided by the users (personal and financial is most common) or information collected automatically such as IP. Each privacy policy should be tailored to the specific website or app. Any information provided as an answer to these questions does not constitute legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship between the attorney and anyone in relation to any information provided under the Q & A section of this website. it is being used because the exact content of the privacy policy is dependent upon the function of the site that it relates to, the information it gathered, and how it is being used. An important note about PP is that certain countries and states have specific rules regarding the use of their residence data and those should be addressed in your PP if you are planning to operate in these areas.
