The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) makes it mandatory for an organization (in this case, the website) to disclose information to its EU users if it collects their personal data. It ensures transparency in your data handling, which is one of the most crucial GDPR requirements.
The answer to this question lies in the answers to several other questions. Here we will discuss all of them.
What and how do you collect personal data?
If you use any third-party services that collect data through your site, mention it on the page.
You must also mention if users can opt-out of data collection and how they can do that.
Why and how will you use personal data?
This section should also mention how long you will store the collected data on the website.
You must also add if the personal data is transferred to any third party (with user consent) and why.
What do you do about user rights?
Users have certain rights under GDPR. You are responsible for providing provisions for them to exercise those rights upon request.
How do you protect personal data?
As a website owner, it is your responsibility to keep the users’ personal data safe. Users have the right to know what measures you have in place, should there be any threat to the data collected.
Clearly explain if you have any terms and conditions regarding the security of the data. Let the users know how they can contact you in case they have privacy-related queries or concerns.
How to contact you?
You can add contact information such as the name, address, email address, phone number of the site administrator, organization, or the data protection officer (if the website has one). You can also direct the users to your support or contact page instead of adding all these details on this page.
When did you update it?
It is simple and easy to use and free of cost! Just fill in the required details, and you can create the page in less than two minutes.
