Iubenda – Create a Privacy Policy

Iubenda is a tool that nearly every web publisher could use. The privacy policy creator quickly and efficiently generates legally binding privacy policies for web-publishers in just three basic steps.

To create a custom privacy policy for your own website, head over to Iubenda and enter your URL into the search bar on Iubenda’s home screen. Register for an account by entering your email address and choosing a password, and accept Iubenda’s terms of service to begin. Iubenda will ask you to input all of the services currently used on your website. Services are broken up into 10 basic categories, including commenting services, analytics, advertising, and social networks. For each service you add, Iubenda will include a few sentences or paragraphs of text that its legal team has written. Preview your policy at any time to see how the document is shaping up. When you’re done adding services, you can fill in your company’s name and address. Within seconds, Iubenda will provide you with a comprehensive policy that you can embed on your website using the provided code.

In addition to its basic services, Iubenda also offers an upgraded Pro version for publishers who need additional options and features. Iubenda’s Pro version can generate policies in multiple languages and allows for multiple updates. This version also comes with a white-label policy and an infinite number of custom additions for publishers with more exacting needs.
