How to Write a Good Privacy Policy

A privacy policy is a written statement posted on a website that explains what information is collected from a user, and how that information is used. Most e-commerce websites contain a privacy policy. It should be written clearly so that it is easy to understand. Once a privacy policy is stated, the company must abide by it and can not change it unless they have the consent of their customers.
