FTC has enacted several new laws which help protect an individual’s on-line privacy and their data security. Failure to comply can have a disastrous financial effect on a website owner.
Two Cardinal Rules Regarding Privacy And Data Security
- Disclose clearly, the categories of information collected at the site
- How this information will be used
- With whom the information is shared ( or who will have unfettered access to this information )
Do check if:
- Does it describe all the ways you use the information?
- Does it describe with whom such information is shared ( or who has the means to access it )?
