Ugh. Legal mumbo-jumbo.
Especially in the wake of the GDPR news coverage earlier this year.
It’s true, it is one of the less interesting aspects of launching a website, or a business.
I’m sure we would all much rather focus on the exciting things, like the design, a new product, marketing dare I say it, maybe even logistics!
Hey, I actually enjoy logistics so no judgement from me if you like that too!
Then there’s the cost!!!
Having a solicitor draft one up for you isn’t particularly cheap!
Unfortunately, though, privacy waits for no one.
In the West, our societies tend to be very individualistic and a high value is placed on individual privacy.
The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner conducted a survey in 2017 into just how Australian’s perceive privacy:
What do I mean by practical you ask?
I mean something that complies with your privacy requirements but that you can actually live up to as well.
Yes, that costs money, but they may pick things up that are especially relevant to your business.
Don’t let privacy be a burden in your business.
Yes, it’s right at the bottom of the list of things you want to do today, but find a way to make it fun.
If you build your business in a privacy-centric fashion, then it is less of a chore to implement.
Yeah. I did.
If you like solving product problems, think of privacy as another piece of the product puzzle.
If you are all about marketing, think about how privacy serves your marketing efforts.
Privacy doesn’t have to be, and shouldn’t be a negative thing.
