Basic Privacy Policy Template

Website Privacy Policy - Basic - Limited Data (GDPR-Ready)


This Basic Website Privacy Policy, as its name implies, is designed for use with simple websites that collect little or no data directly from or about their users (save for contact details collected when a user sends an email to the operator of the website and data that is collected automatically by the site, such as IP addresses).

This document has also been written with the GDPR in mind, covering important points such as details of data subjects' rights, information on the retention of personal data (i.e. for how long it will be kept), and data subject access requests.

This template has been reviewed and updated in light of best practice which has become established since the GDPR came into effect in May 2018. More detail is provided to data subjects in a number of key areas, including how personal data is collected, the source of that data, how it is used, and how it is shared. Furthermore, references to the Data Protection Act 2018 have been added to help make for a smoother Brexit transition in 2019.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
