It’s important nonetheless, so grab yourself a cup of coffee and listen up.

Your website must have a privacy policy!

This is according to California law, and it pertains to anyone doing business in California. Recently, a handful of our clients received a spammy email claiming their websites were out of compliance with this law (even clients with a privacy policy); we saw this as an opportunity to provide some information.

So what does this mean for you?

If your requirements are relatively simple, we recommend using a privacy policy generator that creates policies specific to California’s requirements. We recently updated the privacy policy on our website using termsfeed.com. (Side note: These generators should never be seen as a replacement for sound legal advice, especially if you feel your website’s needs are complicated, if you’re storing tons of personal data, etc.)

And if you’ve read this far, congratulations! As a curtesy to our existing clients without privacy policies, we will gladly add a privacy policy to your website free of charge. Simply provide us with the content, and we’ll post it on your website. Email renee@alpenlily.com for details.
