Privacy policies are an important aspect of running a successful business and building client relationships. You want to ensure that your customers feel safe providing your company with necessary or relevant personal information. If clients don’t feel safe providing you with basic information, it will be very difficult to continue moving forward with your business. 

To ensure your customers feel safe, you’ll want to write a privacy policy that they can understand. Check out the four steps of writing a privacy policy for your Ft. Myers business below.

1. Let Them Know This Is Voluntary

No one likes to feel as if they are being forced to do something. That’s especially true if they’re you’re asking them to provide personal information. Your privacy policy should start by explaining that the client is providing information at their own will. If they are not comfortable giving out certain details, they do not have to do so. Every piece of information they provide is completely voluntary.

2. Explain Why You Are Asking for This Information

The next step in writing your privacy policy is explaining why you are requesting certain information. Your clients need to understand why they are giving you these details. Explain what you are asking for, why it is relevant to your company, and what you will use the data for. If this information is going to be used to contact the client, then you should state this explicitly. 

3.  Let Them Know Their Information Will Not Be Shared

A very important part of every privacy policy is ensuring the client understands that you will not share their information with any other parties. Explain that the information you collect is strictly for purposes within your company and that you will not share this data with any third party, advertising company, or research firm.

4. Allow Them to Opt Out

The final part of your privacy policy should provide clients a way to opt out of sharing their personal information (i.e., choose not to participate in sharing that information any longer). This may be a phone number or email they can use to contact someone and request you no longer collect their information.
