Looking for a privacy policy for your website or app? Our privacy policy generator will help you create a policy that’s customised to your business. Providing privacy information on your website or app is a key legal obligation under data protection law and your business risks huge fines if it doesn’t comply. Read our definitive guide for SMEs to find out what a privacy policy is and why your website needs one.

Our template policy has been produced by a team of experienced lawyers and contains all of the privacy information you’re legally required to provide. Our questionnaire asks you a series of questions about your data processing activities to help you customise the policy to your needs and make sure you’re covered.


How to use the privacy policy generator

  1. Fill in the questionnaire to customise the privacy policy to your data processing activities (we’ve included some helpful tips along the way!)
  2. Download your completed privacy policy
  3. Host your privacy policy on your website

What is a privacy policy?

It’s a notice to individuals setting out how you will process their personal data. It might also be called a privacy notice.


Is a privacy policy required by law?

Yes. If you process any personal data about individuals then you must tell them what you will be doing with it. It’s common to set this out in a privacy policy. This is an important legal obligation under the UK GDPR and you could be fined if you don’t comply.


How should I provide my privacy policy to individuals?

For detailed guidance about privacy policies, including how to provide them to individuals whose data you are processing, see our privacy policy guide for SMEs.


What other policies do I need on my website?

A privacy policy isn’t the only policy that you need on your website. You might also need:

  • a cookie policy
  • website terms of use
  • terms and conditions for goods and/or services


You’ll also need to provide some basic business information, including your business’s name and address and company number if your business is a limited company. For a full run-down of what you need to make sure your website is legally compliant, you can use our checklist or read our Q&A on website content and terms of use
