Ideally you will be best off creating a P3P [1] privacy policy as this 
will give you a structured, complaint, platform independent policy 

Last time I created one I used a free tool downloaded from IBM[2], although
they now seem to charge 500 dollars! There is mention of a no-charge Tivoli
online one but the link is broken[3]! I also came across another site that
has some info and links with two possible in the free to 50 dollar
