1. Define Your Policy Goals.
2. Explain Your Policy.
Explain what information you collect from users, how you use that information, and why it is necessary. Make sure users understand how their information will be used and why it is necessary.
3. Protect User Privacy Rights. Make sure your policy protects the privacy rights of users.
For example, do not collect personal information unless it is necessary for the operation of the blog or website. In addition, do not share user information without the user’s consent.
4. Notify Users of Changes to Policy.
Make sure users are notified of changes to the policy so they know what rights they have and how to exercise them. Also, keep a copy of the policy onsite for users to reference.
5. Cooperate with Law Enforcement Officials If Necessary.
If law enforcement officials request access to user information, make sure you cooperate fully with their requests. You may also need to provide them with a copy of your policy in order for them to comply with legal requirements.
