Create a Privacy Policy for Your Website   by Mark Heinemann

Creating trust is the most important thing you can do if you sell products or services over the internet. Initially, it helps you get your first order. Secondly, if people trust you and your site, they will return and buy again.

This is why you need a privacy policy for your website. A privacy policy essentially lets your site visitors know what information you collect about them, how that information is used, and under what circumstances it is disclosed.

You can always write your own privacy policy and post it to your site. But, what do you say and how do you say it? And, how do your words convey trust? This is why you should always use a third party validation service. This type of service ensures that you, the merchant, will keep the promises made in your policy. They act as an advocate in the event of a dispute... meaning, that if you fail to act on a complaint within a reasonable amount of time, the consumer has the option of contacting them.

Most reputable online merchants use some form of this service. Our site,
WebProfitReport.com is a certified member of PrivacyAffiliates.com We have a validation stamp at the bottom of our homepage, and most of our products are sold through affiliation.

PrivacyAffiliates.com has a wizard that simplifies the complex process of creating a privacy policy for your website. And, it is very affordable too. To create one privacy policy costs only $19.95. However, you can purchase a multi-site license which allows you to create 20 privacy policies for personal use or resale. The multi-site package costs $99.00 (a savings of $300.00!).

PrivacyAffiliates.com is a must for all internet and affiliate marketers.
