What is a Privacy Policy?

A privacy policy is a statement or legal document (in privacy law) that discloses some or all of the ways a party gathers, uses, discloses, and manages a customer or client’s data.

The GDPR is an EU privacy law that requires businesses to disclose their policies regarding the collection, use, storage, and deletion of user data while also providing privacy rights to EU consumers. The European Data Protection Regulation is applicable as of May 25th, 2018 in all member states to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. 

There are various international laws on user data privacy (CCPA, CalOPPA, GDPR) and the requirements of leading Advertising and Affiliate Networks, such as Google AdSense or Commission Junction. 

There are international standards too. Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 17 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights provide that no one shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy, family, home, or correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his or her honor and reputation.

They further state that “everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.” While the right to privacy under international human rights law is not absolute, any instance of interference must be provided by law and subject to a careful and critical assessment of its necessity and proportionality.

A Privacy Policy is therefore a legally binding document.
