For a founder, privacy policies are an unknown area and often low on the priority list.

Copying Privacy Policies Is Like Torrenting Songs
In 2003, when Steve Jobs presented the iTunes store, he explained why buying songs is better than downloading them for free.
He believed that most people don't want to steal songs, but there was just no legal alternative that worked well.
He highlighted critical issues with copied content:
- unreliable quality
- content created by non-experts
- it's stealing

Each business collects different personal data and uses personal data differently. For example, your product may have different functionalities than your competitors. Thus your data usage practices will be different from your competitors.
