Add Privacy Policy Field/Slice

Hello. I am integrating Prismic into my NextJS project and am trying to make a field or a slice for HTML content that I get from my privacy policy generator.

Basically, I have this HTML code that I can get from my privacy policy generator tool so that I can embed it on my website. I have referenced this post to handle the case:

  1. Created a Page type called "Privacy Policy"

  2. Added a Rich Text field to the Static Zone (screenshot below).

  3. I copied the HTML code in the policy_html field.

  4. I can see that the HTML can be retrieved as a string on the NextJS side, but I am not able to render it properly. This is a sample of the HTML code:

<h1 class="privacy-policy-h1">Privacy Policy
<br><span>Last Updated On 26-Dec-2023</span>
<br><span>Effective Date 26-Dec-2023</span>

<p class="privacy-policy-p">

I cannot use as innerHTML for my div element since it is a RichTextField. I gave it a shot and tried the followings and neither worked (since I am getting a string back)

<PrismicRichText field={} />
    preformatted: ({ children }) => <pre>{children}</pre>,

Any help would be very much appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi Akbar,

We don't recommend handling HTML in Prismic. This can introduce usability and stability issues. Nonetheless, I can tell you how to make this work if it is the only option for your use case.

You'll need to use the asText help from @prismicio/client.

import * as prismic from "@prismicio/client"

function MyComponent() {
  return <div dangerouslySetInnerHTML={prismic.asText(} />;

asText() will render your rich text field as plain text (HTML code) and dangerouslySetInnerHTML will inject the HTML into your component.

Hi Sam,
Thanks for the response. Your code worked (almost) perfectly. I just needed to modify it a little bit to stop typescript screaming at me:

<div dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{__html: prismic.asText(}} />

On a relevant note, what would be the recommended way (or how would you recommend) to include a Privacy Policy on a website using Prismic since you warned me about using HTML in Prismic?

Thanks again for the help.

Hey Akbar,

Normally, we would recommend that a user create a Privacy Policy document using a standard rich text field. Rather than inputting HTML, you could input rich text and template it using <PrismicRichText>. Why are you using HTML in this case?


Hey Sam,
Just because the privacy policy generator tool ( or similar platforms) that I use normally give me the HTML code for it. I thought that is easier to copy and paste into a pre tag, but now that you mentioned using RichText, I suppose that is also possible. I can just copy the formatted text directly from the tool and paste into the Rich Text editor and it preserves the links, tags, etc.

Thanks for the help again :slight_smile:
