Once you are logged into WordPress, go to Settings > Privacy.
Then select “create a new page” and you find the generated policy page. Edit as desired, adding new content as it pertains to your site. For instance, if you are using Google Analytics, you’ll need to add a clause about data usage.
The default policy includes a blurb about Cookies, Embedded content from other websites, how long data is kept, etc.
