Don’t Have a Privacy Policy. (Ha Ha..oops)

I think a part of me was really hoping when starting this site (I make NO that I was going to focus on discussing my past grievances and blogging mistakes. I was expecting to do everything right here. This was going to be the site where things were going to go exactly how it was supposed to. All my content for the blog was going to come from my PAST and not the present because, well…I’m done making major blogging mistakes. Apparently, not so.

I was reading a blog parody site this evening, “Blog Badly” written by Max Miroff. A very funny blog that I would recommend you check out if you appreciate a great sense of humor. I clicked on his privacy policy link and read his privacy policy introduction where he explains his need for a policy because he “wants (his) right to use Adsense upheld”. Huh? What is he talking about?

So I went over to and typed in “privacy policy” in the Google Adsense help and I learned something totally new tonight. According to the new Adsense terms that I had agreed to at some point, I am supposed to have a privacy policy generated for this site because, “publishers must notify their users of the use of cookies and/or web beacons to collect data in the ad serving process” Yeah, I have not been doing that. Not just for this site but ANY of my sites and I am pretty sure I have Adsense on ALL my sites. Haha…oops. I was wondering where my Adsense check has been.

I immediately went to Google and typed in: “Privacy Policy Creator” in Google and the first search result was what I clicked on. It took me to “WebDev Tips” which has an online privacy policy generator. This generator allows you to type in your website URL, email and then automatically creates a privacy policy that you can cut and paste in your site. It is nice because it also allow you to choose the option to include if you collect credit card information and will modify your code for that option. So you’ll now notice a privacy policy for this website. Thanks Max for the unintentional tip.

Lesson: Actually there are two of them.

When changes are made to the term and agreements between you and…well, anyone (Google, Credit Card…Wife) it would be advisable to actually READ those new terms and agreements before you click “I agree”.

If you place Google Adsense ads on your site, have a privacy policy to comply with those term and agreements that you agreed to when you signed up for the program. It would be a shame to lose such a great sense of revenue (not that I make any money with it, but you might).
