You should have a machine readable policy for all pages on your site. 
Even if you are not actively collecting information you probably have 
web logs that are collecting information and that needs to be disclosed 
(and if you are actually not keeping logs or scrubbing them, than you 
should disclose that too).

It makes sense to have a generic policy for all the pages that don't  
actively collect info through forms and then specific policies for 
pages that collect information.
