The legal document your Facebook business page must have

Do you have a business page on Facebook, or plan to set on up? If so, do you know what document you are legally required to have on your page? Drum roll......A Privacy Policy! Yup. Facebook requires a privacy policy if you are collecting any personal data from your page through a CTA (call to action) - such as emails for your newsletter/mailing list. You have to provide notice to users and have a privacy policy in place and on your page (as well as your website).

A privacy policy is a legal disclosure that gives your clients/users the FYI about how you gather information about them and what you intend to do with it. What's that? You don't collect emails (or any other personal info) on FB? Well, do you have a link to your website on your FB page and then collect this information on your website? If so, you have to have a privacy policy on FB.

If you're super nerdy like me, you can go to FB's Guidelines, Statement of Rights and Facebook Page Terms (yup, they have it in 3 places) to read about this requirement.

It specifically states:

"If you collect information from users, you will: obtain their consent, make it clear you (and not Facebook) are the one collecting their information and post a privacy policy explaining what information you collect and how you use it."

If you don't have a privacy policy on your FB page or on your website, run over to The Shop x Complianceology and grab one ASAP! You don't want to be that person (or business) who gets sued for not having this document and come running to me to help you. HAhhahhahaha, obvs come running to me, but ya know what I mean. ;)
