    I love this plugin - very useful...

    BUT I noticed the by-line "This privacy policy was created by the Easy Privacy Policy plugin for WordPress..." with the out-bound link (I don't mind an outbound link to download the privacy policy) -

    It went to a COMPETITOR'S SITE for my niche!!!

    WTF?!

    Seriously, WHAT THE #u%!? Are you ****en kidding me??

    hi, great plugin but it should be nice if there was php tag to insert privacy page manually into template

    I agree with the first comment here - a great plugin, works beautifully, cheers to Kevin for making it. I'd be perfectly happy to provide an outbound link from my site to the WordPress Easy Privacy Policy plugin page or the author's own plugin page.

    But I'm actually not willing to unknowingly provide a link to a completely unrelated site. The option to 'include a credit link for the Easy Privacy Plugin' shows a link to the plugin homepage (which of course implies that this particular link will appear on the privacy page), but then the link generated is something completely different.

    So yes, a useful plugin, but in my opinion, don't check the box to include the external link.

    I agree an outbound link to the author's plug-in page would be fine, but I'm not for linking to other, unrelated sites. Thumbs up for the plug-in, but not of the unrelated link...

    how bout building in an option that the obl to the plugin creators site goes away with a paypal donation,that would be fair to both sides. i mean even at a buck a pop,with 85k downloads....not to shabby

    If you feel that a plugin is inserting spam links, then please feel free to contact plugins@wordpress.org.
