Whittier, CA asked in Business Law for California

Q: Does hiring a lawyer to create Privacy Policy benefit my company more than using an online Privacy Policy generator?

For example, can a company either user an online generator, or pick and choose and adjust existing language from similar companies in order to make a Privacy Policy that seemingly works for the company itself? Does hiring a lawyer to either sign-off on an existing Privacy Policy or generate a Privacy Policy have any benefit?

A: If you hire an attorney to either review one or to draft one for you, then you know it covers you appropriately. If you don't, there is always the chance that your document will miss an important legal clause or section that it needs to give you the protection you need. I know it costs more than crafting one yourself but it can save you hundreds or thousands later.
