Do I Even Collect Personal User Data?
You may think you don’t collect any data from users. However, suppose you use Google Analytics, allow comments on your site, offer users to send a contact form, or use a third-party service that tracks users (like Google Analytics). In that case, you collect and process user data.
Use a service like TermsFeed to generate all the legal agreements and documents you might need to operate online.
The whole process can take less than 15-minutes, cost less than $300 for every possible upgrade, and be pasted into any website system – WordPress, Shopify, Wix, and others.
