The collection of accurate personal information from your site users is essential to the health of small and medium businesses. According to a 2006 Singapore research, the adoption of privacy notices is a “fundamental prerequisite for firms soliciting information from their clients”.

Website users are increasingly aware of the importance of protecting their personal information online. Business websites, blogs should all include a privacy policy that outlines how you intend to protect the data you collect.
