NewsSet up Your Windows 8 Privacy Policy in Five Minutes (or Less) Pin

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and the fact your Windows 8 application will fail certification if it’s network-capable and you don’t have a privacy policy. I can’t fix the first two, but I can help with the last one. If you read the full text of the requirement, you’ll note that the policy needs to be accessible from the description of the app as it appears in the Windows Store (as well as from the Settings Charm when the application is running), and that means you’ll be hosting it on the web at a minimum. Enter Windows Azure Web Sites – create a free site and publish your policy in less than five minutes (yes, I timed it!).
IANAL, so I can’t guide you as to what your privacy policy should say... but this is how you make one.
