    Just wondering if you think I should include one on my website? I cover all this type of stuff already in the web dev agreement my clients sign, but I’m just wondering does the website need one too?

    Only stuff on there really would be the contact and quote forms where they provide me with any information.

    If so, would anyone be able to help me out with a simple one?

    Thanks very much!

    You should have a read of the Privacy Act which is the basis of the National Privacy Principles. Depending on the information gathered, certain organisations may be exempt from a strict application of the NPP.

    National Privacy Principles:
    http://www.privacy.gov.au/materials/types/law/view/6893

    In relation to your question:

    An organisation must set out in a document clearly expressed policies on its management of personal information. The organisation must make the document available to anyone who asks for it.

    If you are collecting any private information from a client it is highly recommended that you do so in a manner consistent with the Privacy Act and the National Privacy Principles.

    If you intend accepting payment on-line you will find that most if not all payment gateways, and your bank if you have a merchant account, will require a Privacy Policy.

    I really liked this one from The Daily Satire

    1. We don’t mind if you see us naked
    2. But we’d be mortified if you saw us doing a poo

    Although we do not collect….

    PS I’m NOT suggesting you use it although they are always so serious it would be cool to see some fun injected while still getting the message across.

    It will always be good if you can include a privacy policy whenever you can. That way, people who interact with your site knows the risk of sharing information.
