    Google Adsense says you need a privacy policy.

    https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=100557

    I noticed that many adsense websites don't bother.

    Is it worth the bother to put up a privacy page? Have people been banned/lost accounts on adsense when you didn't have a privacy policy?

    If you get a manual review the last thing you want is to be banned for not having the policy in place. It won't take you much time and is better to be safe than sorry if you are wanting to make serious money from Adsense.
