Privacy policies for Blogger need to address the possible ways that the site collects data, whether it’s through direct methods such as sign-up pages, or indirect methods such as analytics tools.
Some examples of personal information include:
- IP addresses
- Phone numbers
Many countries and states have privacy legislation that require privacy policies — CalOPPA and the GDPR being two notable examples.
- What personal information is collected
- The purpose of data collection
- Which parties you share the information with
- Users’ rights over their data
- Whether there’s any cross-border data transfers
- How long data is stored
Whenever you add third-party services to your Blogger site, always check their terms of service to ensure that you’re complying with their guidelines.
They also address user rights for different privacy laws that might apply, including the GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
Like in the example, addressing the privacy laws that could apply will help shield your blog from potential legal penalties.
