Privacy Policy created for Knacksteem.

Linked Task Request

There was no task request for this contribution. However, after stating my intention to render my copywriting services to the project via an issue on Github, the project owner has since then relinquished almost all writing tasks to me. But only at request.


Knacksteem is progressing steadily. There are so many things put in place to steer Knacksteem to the next phase on it's roadmap. Standardized documents are being implemented on the project's webpage. The documents are Terms of Service(ToS) and Privacy policy.
The importance of a privacy policy on any project cannot be overemphasized. It is even more important for projects that have to do with data collection of end users. A privacy policy statement gives end users, the developer's policies regarding data collection, type of data collected, the use of data collected, and security of data collected. In cases of projects where these do not occur, a privacy policy statement helps to bolster the confidence of end users using the services of the project.
Knacksteem is a platform that gives the impression that user information can be collected remotely, but it is not so. That is why a policy statement is vital for the project to clear doubts of end-users.

Actual content

The content I created this time, is a Privacy policy. Being a standard document, there are several templates online. However, I tweaked content to suit only Knacksteem.
The privacy policy I created covered some necessary points, excluding points that required actual legal backing. The exclusion of those points was to avoid any backlash from law enforcement agencies.

These are the points covered in the policy statement;

  • Introduction
  • Information Collection and Use
  • Cookies
  • Service Providers
  • Security
  • Links to Other Sites
  • Children’s Privacy
  • Changes to This Privacy Policy
  • Contact Us

Additional information

The policy statement is now live on Knacksteem's webpage.

Thank you for your contribution.

There are sections like the one referred to Children's Privacy that should be better explained as the current copy is lacking enough information on how the site deals with this topic. Also, there are heavily repetitive paragraphs such as the one in the Service Providers section.
