Launch your small business website with confidence and compliance using our essential small business Privacy Policy template. In today’s digital age, where data privacy is paramount, ensuring your website adheres to legal standards is not just a necessity but a cornerstone of trust with your audience. Our template simplifies the complex process of creating a Privacy Policy that is both comprehensive and understandable to your visitors.


Basically, a privacy policy tells your website’s visitors when & what type of personal info (i.e., name, email address, email sign up, etc.) you collect from them, how you use it, and what they can do to change it. It also describes what you’ll do to keep their info private. If you have an email sign-up form, contact page, or take people’s info anywhere else on your site, you’re required to have one.


In the U.S., you’re legally required to have a privacy policy on your website if you…

  • Collect email addresses and/or names for your email list
  • Have a contact page on your site
  • Send out emails to your list
  • Use cookies, Google ads/analytics, tracking, or anything else to study who’s viewing your site
  • Run surveys, contests, giveaways or anything else that collects ANY personal info from people (name, email address, address, phone number, etc.)
  • Send emails to anyone located within the EU, thanks to the GDPR


  • DIY Privacy Policy TemplateOne (1) downloadable, editable .docx file containing a detailed privacy policy with fill-in-the-blanks to make your own.
  • How-To Video Tutorial — a video tutorial (that actually shows you the document while I talk!) where I walk you through what each paragraph means (in English, not legal language) & where you’ll need to make changes. You’ll be comfortable and confident to make the Privacy Policy your own.
  • Guidelines & Tips PDF Guide — to let you know what to do with this document & how to make it your own.
  • BONUS: you’ll receive my Super Simple Guide to Legally Protect Your Online Business to make sure you’re on the right track.
