Does Your Website Privacy Policy Need Some Love?

Bookmark and Share

Lane Powell Attorney ​Annie Robertson authored an article in the October issue of Oregon Business magazine titled “Does Your Website Privacy Policy Need Some Love?” In the article, Robertson discussed the purpose of website privacy policies, as well as the information all policies should provide to their readers. The article also discussed several tips and best practices to use when authoring or posting a privacy policy to a website, while highlighting the differences that may apply to individual policies based on federal and state laws and regulations.

The purpose of a privacy policy is to describe how a website, mobile app or other online service uses, stores and shares information received from users.

The policy should accurately and completely describe what your company actually does with the collected information, which may differ from what Facebook or other companies do with the information they collect.
