GDPR – Privacy policy template

Net Lawman has provided a privacy policy template which they have adapted for bookkeepers and accountants.

The document is a standard privacy policy and could be given to new clients with a letter of engagement, or be placed on a website.

It has been called a website privacy policy simply because most people are used to it being displayed on a website.

The policy doesn’t just cover the privacy of website visitors. It covers the privacy of any individual related to the business.

Download the template

Once you download the document you will find guidance on how to use and adapt the template for your own business on pages 14 to 20.  This should be read before using the template to ensure you adapt the template according to your business and so that you don’t include any sections which are not applicable to you.

Within your privacy policy you should also ensure you cover other areas including but not limited to:

If you use personal data for marketing purposes, then under GDPR you are required to obtain consent to use the data in this way. Further information can be found here: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/lawful-basis-for-processing/consent/.

Neither Net Lawman nor any other party, including the IAB, accepts liability for your use of it, nor gives any representation or warranty that it will be suitable for your business.
