Do you have to have a privacy policy if you only sell Amazon items?

    If you have your own site and you only sell Amazon products on the site, do you have to have a privacy policy? I know Adsense requires it, don't know about Amazon. I did try to find an answer to this question, couldn't. I know the privacy policy requirement applies to any site that collects information about the user, as far as I understand. I know Amazon uses cookies. But is this construed as my site using cookies if Amazon uses cookies?

      I have one on all my sites + the new Amazon disclaimer regarding kids under 13, although I only have Amazon and CJ.com links on them. I do believe that Amazon requires a privacy or at least a disclaimer*.

      ETA: Disclaimer --> XXX is participant in Amazon LLC affiliate program, etc.

        Thanks, justholidays. i'm going to go ahead and make a privacy policy for these sites then, to be on the safe side.

          Good decision - I believe you don't have to add the Google double cookie dart if you don't use Adsense, but a disclaimer is nevertheless crucial on all websites.
          Don't forget the European cookie disclaimer as well smile

            On one of my sites I put up a policy for Amazon and excluded the Adsense part. We seemed to be thinking the same way on this, I put that policy up on that site before I came over here to HP.

    You should have a privacy policy on your website if you get any private information from users and visitiors e.g. registration; email addresses, cookies (IP Addresses)

    Depending on the country you come from there is a general list of what a privacy policy should include.  It is usually found on government websites. e.g. Australian Privacy Principles (APP).
