You have a choice. If you have two policies, the policy for the 
listserv pages should mention the listservs AND the web server logs and 
cookies (if you use cookies on those pages). The other policy would not 
mention the listservs. It is easier to administer a single policy that 
discloses all your practices in one policy. However, if you want to 
make it clear that you don't collect PII anywhere except on the 
listserv pages than you will want to have two policies.

I hope that helps!
