Demographics & Interests

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Good evening,

 

I'm new on Analytics and I'm a bit confused. I wanted to enable the Demographics & Interests reports and then I found out that I should be having a Privacy Policy and cookies information. My intention is to have a blog to practice Analitics, SEO and probably as soon as I manage those two maybe do Adwords and Display.

In this case do I need to create this Privacy Policy? I will create a Newsletter, so for this I will ask for the Name and email.

Thanks for your help in advance.

 

Regards

Hi Susan :-)
I'm not a legal person but in my opinion, any site that uses cookies or some method to track site visitor.. and/or collects visitor information in some way eg newsletter signups, subscriptions etc, should have a privacy policy

You can create a privacy policy yourself or use a paid 3rd party solution such as iubenda

 

Unfortunately Google cant provide a template of what your privacy policy should say as legal requirements will vary from country to country etc
You can get more information on what should be covered in the privacy policy here:
