    Every new website of every new small business and Internet startup needs a privacy policy. While it is extremely tempting to simply go to another website and cut and paste the privacy policy from that website onto your website, this is typically a bad idea. While there are thousands of sample privacy policy terms which you can access through a simple Google search, none of them are designed specifically for your business model. Before you can draft a privacy policy for your specific website, you need to take an inventory of all the different types of data you are collecting from website visitors and registered users. The best approach is to hire an Internet law attorney who understands how to correctly draft a privacy policy designed specifically for you. While using a sample privacy policy may get you started, you should always remember to have your privacy policy customized as soon as your budget will allow. While our Internet law attorneys are often asked how much does it cost to draft a privacy policy, the better question is how your new company might be affected in terms of reputation if your policy does not match your actions.
