Privacy Policies: Why Are They Necessary?
*This post contains affiliate link(s). An affiliate link means I may receive an advertising/referral fee if you make a purchase through my link, without any extra cost to you. You can read more on my affiliate disclosure HERE.
Why do companies use privacy policies? The legal side
Once the customer has accepted the terms, the company can use the customers’ information for their database. That way, they can send information related to the webpage to those on the list.
When are privacy policies required?
Privacy policies must be required for all the webpages and companies that pretend to use the customers’ information in any way. It can be to create an e-mail list of returning customers or to facilitate the payments of a customer by keeping a copy of their data from the first time they purchased your store.

How different legal constitutions affect collecting data?
Resources that we use often, and share with our clients are below:
Our Trusted Providers
All of our clients websites are hosted on Bluehost – unless they have something else set up. It by far is our most favorite provider. Besides providing an affordable plan for hosting for as little as $3.95/month, you also get a free domain (if you don’t already have one), and even at the basic plan, you get 5 free email addresses!
Plugins & Support
WPMUDev has been a staple in every one of the websites we have developed. This package of plugins has everything from security (Defender), to image optimization, to page caching…the list goes on….111 plugins that is.
For all of our online booking we use Acuity. This platform allows us to make booking appointments easy for us, and for clients. We can elect to have different types of appointments, as well as if we wanted to do classes – this platform allows for classes to be booked.
We were going between MULTIPLE websites just to maintain my clients, their invoices, emails, where they are at in their design/site, then we were introduced to Dubsado. This LIFESAVER of a website has it all in one place, and allows you to do a lot of automation with prewritten emails, and auto-populate contracts.
