    Privacy policy is all about how you handle customer data if you taken it from customer like their names , emails etc,etc...
    Customer wants to know what you will do with their private data like name and email and phone no etc...
    whether you are going to sell it further or not...

    So if you take any data then it is must for you to have firm policy to avoid having sue like things...

    I would say it's a policy worth having. It takes little time and can cover your backside, so to speak.

    It could also be useful for SEO. Just a theory, but having a privacy page could help to build trust.

    A privacy policy is definitely something you should include. As mentioned you don't need to go into massive detail just enough to cover yourself from any problems that may arise in the future.

    Also a disclaimer if you are providing any sort of information.

    Does anyone know of some free resources for help writing a privacy policy? Such as a template?
    There tends to be a lot of legal stuff in privacy policies and I can't afford a lawyer to write one. These things tend to be pretty standard, right?

    Thanks.
