Websites + Marketing Help

Add a privacy policy to my website

Many countries have enacted laws that require businesses to provide information about how they collect, handle, and process personal data gathered from visitors to their websites. We recommend consulting with legal counsel to determine if you require a privacy policy and, if so, what information it should contain and provide.

This video is part of the How-To series for Adding Advanced Functionality in Website Builder.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll down, expand Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your website.
  3. Select Edit Website or Edit Site to open your website builder.
  4. Go to the page and location where you want to add a section for your privacy policy, and add a section, searching for Privacy Policy and selecting Add. If you don’t see this option, you’ve reached the limit of 6 privacy policy sections.
  5. Note: If you're a customer in the European Union, the first time you launch a new Websites + Marketing site, it automatically adds a blank privacy policy section in your site and a link to that section in the footer.

  6. Customize the accent color and title. Write or paste your privacy policy into the text box. If necessary, you can customize your text to include bold, italic, underline, lists and links.
  7. When you're ready, select Done.
  8. Your changes are saved automatically. Use Preview to see the results and when you're ready to make the changes public, publish your site.
