Contact Forms and Privacy
Posted 6 years ago on 8/19/2013
Take Away:

Creating a Contact Form necessitates the use of a Privacy Policy (normally linked to in the footer).

The State of California requires any commercial website or online service collecting information about consumers residing in California to post a privacy policy on the website used to collect information. 

Make sure that your estimate includes time for creating a privacy policy as part of the task.


Create a Privacy Policy as Part of the task for adding a Contact Form

Make sure that your estimate includes time for creating a privacy policy as part of the task.
--Gerald Renton

If a website collects a user’s name, physical address, email address, telephone number, and/or social security number, then a privacy policy must be present.

The following information must be present in the policy:

  • What information is being collected and who it may be shared with
  • If and how consumers can make changes to information collected by the site
  • How the operator of the site informs site users of privacy policy changes
  • The effective date of the privacy policy

The policy should be posted on the home page through an icon or hyperlink displayed so that a reasonable person would see it; or through a text link that is written in all capital letters, a larger type than surrounding text, or includes the word privacy.
An operator of a website is only in violation of this subdivision if they fail to add the privacy policy within 30 days of notification.
