What Does the Privacy Policy Really Say?

Privacy policies – most if not all reputable websites have them.  Privacy policies are helpful in telling website visitors about which information is being collected and tracked.  However, typical privacy policies are long and full of legal jargon that can be overwhelming and dare I say boring to the average website user.  Let’s face it, most people don’t ever read them.

There is a great new online tool to help with all of that!  It is called Usable Privacy.  Basically, you plugin the website URL where you want to view the privacy policy.  The Usable Privacy tool reads the policy for you and then breaks it down into comprehensive sections.  All of the important stuff is highlighted and explained, making privacy policies actually accessible and user-friendly!
