Crafting Your Privacy Policy

Default Privacy Policy

Since Launch Effect’s core function is to collect people’s email addresses, it’s important to have a privacy policy that is transparent and protects your users’ personal information.

While our theme comes with a generic privacy policy, your policy should be tailored to your business and the data you collect.

Here are main questions your privacy policy should address and answer:

  1. What type of information do you collect? e.g. email addresses, names, IP addresses, etc.
  2. How and why do you collect the information? e.g. We use Google Analytics to track traffic data.
  3. How do you protect your customers’ or users’ personal information? e.g. We never share information to any third-parties.


Rather than peppering your privacy policy with big terms, use simple and sensible language so that it’s easy to read and understand. Remember, your privacy policy shouldn’t read like Lorem Ipsum.
