eCommerce Privacy Policy

Any good eCommerce website needs a privacy policy. It creates trust between the business and its customers and protects both sides, reassuring buyers that their data is safe, and protecting the business in case of legal issues.

What is an eCommerce Privacy Policy?

Most simply put, it lays out the way that the business collects, processes, stores, and perhaps shares the personal information that website users share with it.

It is a necessary contract between the business and its customers which safeguards both parties. It’s also a legal requirement in many countries.

The creation of an eCommerce privacy policy requires research and legal knowledge. Every business is different, and that’s why your eCommerce Privacy Policy needs to be tailored to your individual needs.

Importance of Privacy Policy for eCommerce websites

There are five main reasons why an eCommerce privacy policy is a necessity:

  • It helps to protect your business from legal claims in the event of third parties using the data or a data breach
  • It builds trust between your business and your website users
  • eCommerce sites collect and store sensitive personal data that can be used to the detriment of the user
  • There are legal requirements
  • It’s required by many third party apps, such as Google Analytics or AdSense.
