If you are conducting eCommerce on your website, not only is it critical, in most cases it is absolutely necessary in order for your payment gateway to release your sales revenue into your account.
Most clients of Opuscule, though, only have simple “Contact Us” forms on their sites. And for a few of your visitors, it is ver important to them what you do with the information they put into that form. Are you creating a huge list of completed form entries and selling them to other websites for SPAM purposes? That would be something I’d like to know…
- If you are collecting a person’s information through a form, than you will want to make it clear what is happening with that information. If you have a form where people can subscribe to your email newsletter, or the form they fill out to get in contact with you, they need to know what’s happening with their information. This is especially critical if you are conducting any online sales where people enter their credit card information. This also includes how you are protecting that information.
- When you link your website to other sites, like in this post for example, you should explain that you are not responsible for the content of those websites. This is commonly called “Third Party Links.”
