Although this document cannot magically absolve you from the risk of data mismanagement, it is a giant first step. Informing your visitors and customers (and other parties) about the data you collect about them is a requirement. A privacy notice is a simple way to comply, but a good privacy notice goes further. It is prime evidence to everyone with whom you deal that you take confidentiality seriously. That can help increase the trust that visitors and customers have in your business and boost their confidence in using your services or buying from you.
The law in this privacy notice
This document complies with Irish law, including the Data Protection Legislation. (Note that having a privacy notice is just part of the requirements for compliance with the Data Protection laws).

In other places, we have provided ideas and the most common scenarios, but the notice may require a little customisation to fully reflect your business.
The notice is drawn around:
- covering you for compliance with the Data Protection Act 1988 and 2003;
- protecting you from claims that you have misused data;
- reminding you how to avoid contravening the Irish Data Protection Legislation;
- providing re-assurance to your customers or clients;

For the money I spent I was very pleased. I just wish I had used the service earlier rather than trying to develop my own policy by synthesising elements from actual websites. One very small suggestion: include a date indicating when the content is in conformance with legal requirements, i.e., correct as of Sept. 21st, 2016

I hate any kind of legal documents so dreaded what lay ahead of me when I downloaded your document. However, what I found was a wonderfully easy and user-friendly document that could be very easily tailored to suit my needs...the notes were very easy to follow. I now have my privacy document.
So my feedback: superb...so easy and user-friendly.

The document was very easy to understand and i amended to suit my needs. Support was quick and useful. Would recommend others use this site.
"I will certainly be advertising your company to other business colleagues.
The lease was like picking up an old favourite novel and understanding everything from the first turn of the page. So easy to read and complete, what a joy and your site was recommended to me by another colleague.
Hope this brings a smile to your face knowing you are making business life easy for people and furthermore the price was just as pleasing.
