One of the requirements of app ownership is having a privacy policy, available for public viewing. 

A privacy policy is a statement or legal document (in privacy law) that discloses some or all of the ways a party gathers, uses, discloses, and manages a customer or client's data.

You can get a privacy policy created by a lawyer, through an online generator, or copied from a template.

ACTIONERA has created an editable Privacy Policy template to help app owners meet this requirement.


Creating a Privacy Policy in Your Web App

  • Login to the Content Portal
  • Navigate to ACTIONPAGES, then click Resources
  • Click Add Resource

  • Fill out the fields:

  1. Title - Name this resource Privacy Policy
  2. Description - Copy and paste the text from your modified privacy policy template (you need to update the red text in the template to be YOUR business and app information)
  3. Call to Action - we suggest Contact Us
  4. Call to Action URL - put a link to your website contact page or your profile page in the app
  5. Web URL- Copy this link. Provide ACTIONERA this link when you submit your app store form

Adding a "mailto" or Clickable email Address

  • Click on the Web tab
  • Paste the same text into the Description

  1. Web Tab - click this to get to the WYSIWYG
  2. Highlight your email address at the bottom of the text
  3. Click the Link icon

  • In the URL field, type mailto:[your email address] (example: mailto:jennifer@actioneralcom)
  • Type in whatever text you want to display. This will be clickable and automatically open a new email when the user clicks on it.
  • Click Save when done
  • Don't forget to click Submit to save!

View Your Privacy Policy Online

You can easily view your new privacy policy by pasting the web url into a new browser. The mailto link you made in the WYSIWYG will be clickable.

View Your Privacy Policy In Your App

If you want people to be able to get to your privacy policy in your mobile app, you will need to add it to an active topic. If you want it in a directory, you would add it to an active directory AND and active topic.  Make sure it's in a place that is viewable to all (no tags).

PRO Tip: Use an online mailto generator

There are lots of online mailto generators to choose from. Do a quick search to find one you like.

You can add customizations (like adding a subject line, etc) and just copy the link and paste it into the URL field in the WYSIWYG when creating a link!

Here are a few examples:
