Do you want to add a privacy policy on your Weebly website? Privacy laws require you to have a Privacy Policy on your website if you collect personal information from your visitors. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to easily add a privacy policy in Weebly.

Do I Really Need a Privacy Statement on my Weebly Website?

In many countries, websites are required by law to disclose the information they collect about their visitors, if any, and how this information is used.

Here are some of the ways in which a typical Weebly website collects user information.

  • Name and email address in comment forms
  • Comment form cookie which remembers a user’s name or email address.
  • Name and email addresses submitted using a Weebly contact form
  • Name and email address submitted to sign up for email list
  • Information collected when users register on a website.
  • Google Analytics tracking
  • Advertising programs like Google Adsense which track users

In short, any website should have a privacy policy page. It protects your business and helps build consumer trust.

What to Include in a Privacy Policy?

It’s really simple. You basically need to list all the ways you collect user information on your website.

Adding a Privacy Policy in Weebly

First, you’d need to add a page via your Weebly Site Editor. You obviously should name your page Privacy Policy, so that your users immediately know what this page is about.

Next, you need to add the content for your privacy policy page. There are a bunch of online privacy policy generators that you may use in this matter.

Adding Link to Privacy Policy in Weebly

Websites usually display link to their privacy policy page in the footer area. This way the link appears on every page but is not taking space in your main navigation menu.

To do that, you just need to click on the footer area from your Weebly Site Editor and you’ll be able to enter the link to your newly added page.
