Easy Privacy Policy Generator 250x300 JPG

IMPORTANT UPDATE!!! Go to the bottom of the post!

You should always be sure to put a "Privacy Policy" page on your website, and the Easy Privacy Policy WordPress plugin makes this an absolute snap. It's a simple, single-purpose plugin that generates a great "legal boilerplate" policy page and allows you to customize it for your site. You can get a copy of the plugin code at this page or you can download it off the WordPress.org Plugins Site.
