Privacy policy website

It is indispensable for any website: a thoughtful and legal privacy policy. A privacy policy is not only a legal requirement, it also shows that you take your users’ personal data and privacy extremely seriously. Your privacy policy should state transparently and in understandable language how you collect, use, protect and process your visitors’ collected data. In this blog, we’ll tell you what steps to include in getting privacy policies right on your website.

Our website privacy policy

At 2manydots, we understand the importance of privacy policies. Our privacy policy is designed to be fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a legal basis designed to protect the privacy of individuals. We believe that every website should have a customized and fully compliant privacy policy. This is the key to building trust and engagement with your users while meeting your legal obligations.

How customer data is managed in WordPress

In WordPress, we manage customer data in a very structured way. We clearly explain how an IP address and other personally identifiable information are collected, used and stored. We are also keen to ensure the security of this data and apply strict security measures to ensure that it is not shared with third parties and falls into the wrong hands. Below you can read about some of the security measures we employ and how data is used.

Cookie notification

A cookie notice is a crucial part of the privacy policy. When users visit our website, they are immediately informed of the use of cookies. We ask the visitor’s permission before we post them and give them the ability to change these settings at any time. Importantly, we require users to actively consent to the use of cookies, rather than giving implied consent.

Privacy Statement

According to the Personal Data Authority, a clear privacy notice is mandatory. Our privacy statement is designed to explain in an understandable way how we process data, what data we collect, why we collect it, how long we keep it, and whether it is shared with third parties. We strive to present this information as clearly as possible so that our users know exactly where they stand.

SSL certificate

An SSL certificate is a technology that establishes a secure connection between the website’s server and the visitor’s browser. This ensures that all data exchanged between the website and the user remains encrypted and secure. At 2manydots, we use SSL certificates to ensure that all data collected is stored and processed securely.

Processor Agreement

A processor agreement is legally required documentation between a data controller (often a company or organization that processes personal data) and a data processor (an entity that processes privacy-sensitive data on behalf of the controller). This agreement is highly relevant in the context of AVG. We see a processor agreement as a crucial step in ensuring user privacy and AVG compliance.

A processor agreement establishes the expectations and requirements of the data controller to the data processor, including the security measures to be taken to protect the data. Data processing must have a legal basis. It also describes how and why the personal data collected will be processed. The processor agreement can also specify how the rights of data subjects (the individuals whose data is being processed) will be guaranteed, such as the right to access, correct, and delete. These rights should be clearly communicated in the privacy policy.

Is your website completely AVG-proof

Having a fully AVG-proof website is not only a legal obligation, but it is also crucial for building trust with your visitors. At 2manydots, we can help you fully AVG-proof your website. We do this by analyzing your current policies, identifying any gaps, and making sure you are in compliance with all the requirements of the AVG.
