It’s an honest question. Judging by the amount of people who have read my iWeb tutorial post on adding a contact form to an iWeb site many of you want some way for your site visitors to be able to contact you.
If you are asking your visitors to complete a form that collects information (ie name, e-mail address or site URL) thaen perhaps it would be wise to let them know what you are going to do with this information.
In fact in some countries now it is law that a web-site that collects personal information does just that; lets its users know what will happen to the information that is collected.
Internet research has repeatedly shown that many consumers are reluctant to engage in electronic transactions because of concerns about the privacy of their personal data.
Privacy policies don’t have to be complicated either. You don’t need a degree in law to write one. Take a look at my contact page and you will see mine is just a few lines explaining that I will do nothing with the information you provide unless the ‘old bill’ come knocking on my door and tell me I have to.
