Nope, You Should Be Good


While it's generally a good idea to have a contact page, privacy policy, and all that other good stuff on your site, it isn't necessary to have in order for you site to be well ranked. We definitely highly suggest having a contact page, but obviously there are certain times when one isn't needed.

And just in case you were wondering if having a privacy policy or other boilerplate type of content on your site could hurt you as a lot of privacy policies are rather similar, here's Google' Matt Cutts to debunk that theory.
