    First I want to apologize if this isn't the right forum. A mod can move it if I'm in the wrong section or even delete it if it violates some rules.

    My buddy recently launched a gaming site that contains only guides.
    I've been trying to find him a decent adnetwork, but the truth is that as a new site he can either use crappy adnetworks or he can't get accepted.

    As such I decided that he should try to get his hosted adsense account upgraded. The only issue I'm facing is that adsense require(as far as I know) for each site to have a terms and conditions and privacy policy to get accepted.
    Now while I can make a simple terms an conditions for him the privacy policy is a bit of a blur to me. What should I put into there? The truth is that the site as I said is a simple wordpress site with guides. The site doesn't collect any information whatsoever. The only thing that the site can see is the emails(and IPs of course) users, use when they leave a comment on a post, so I guess that's the only thing that can be considered "collected".

    Is there a good plugin for Privacy Policy creation? I know there is one for terms and conditions, but I haven't found any decent for privacy policy. Talking about a plugin that have a completed form and all it requires is for you to input few things like site name etc...
    Also adsense says this
    "You must disclose clearly any data collection, sharing and usage that takes place on any site, app or other property as a consequence of your use of any Google advertising service. To comply with this disclosure obligation with respect to Google’s use of data, you have the option to display a prominent link to - and there is a link here that I can link I guess"

    Can I just write something along the lines of:
    Per Adsense user agreement the site collects certain data. For more info you can visit - link to the adsense privacy policy.

    Really hoping that someone can give me some good suggestion.
    I really want for his hosted account to get accepted on the first try and I'm pretty sure that if he tries to get accepted without Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy it will be A LOOOT harder to do.
