What Is Privacy Policy?

Privacy is implemented to keep the information of customers private. Privacy is one of the most important aspects of running an eCommerce business. It’s important for the customers to know they can trust the merchant with what happens with their personal data provided. Personal data is being collected after every purchase made so the privacy policy needs to be the number one priority. Customers should be given a privacy policy statement that explains where their personal data is being sent to and what happens after the checkout process. Remember to keep the customer’s personal information confidential! Europe and California have passed laws protecting the privacy of their citizenships data retrieved with online shopping.
