1.7 Adding Privacy Policy to your website

Adding a Privacy Policy to your Website

4) hide on device

The key to transparency is having a privacy policy on your website that clearly states how you gather and manage visitor data. You can have this policy on a separate page on your website and then link out to it. If you make the page hidden, it won't show up in your main navigation. 

1.7.1 Add policy text in Global Data

4) hide on device

Under Content > Legal, you can add various legal texts, including a Data privacy policy text in the field {legal_privacy}. You can also add a heading for your privacy policy in {legal_header_privacy}. Note that you can create individual texts for each language on your website. 

1.7.2. Create a separate privacy policy page

The easiest way to display your privacy policy on your website is to create a separate page for it. This way, you can make sure to link to the same privacy policy content throughout your website. Read how to create a new page on your website here. After creating it, you can hide the page so it won't show up in your main navigation. In Page Settings, click Settings > Hide page in navigation, and tick all three boxes to hide the page on all viewports.


When adding content to this separate privacy policy page, we recommend you to use the Global Data tag (see above). This way, you only have one source where you change and edit your privacy policy which helps you keep your content consistent. Insert a Text module on the page, click the globe symbol and select {legal_header_privacy} to insert the headline you have added inGlobal Data and {legal_privacy} in order to insert your privacy policy body text.
