About Privacy Policies
A privacy policy is a statement or a legal document that discloses some or all of the ways a party (particularly a web site or blog) gathers, uses, discloses and manages a customer, site visitor or client’s data.

Personal information can be anything that can be used to identify an individual, not limited to but including

  • name
  • address
  • date of birth
  • marital status
  • contact information
  • ID issue and expiry date
  • financial records
  • credit information
  • medical history
  • where you travel
  • intentions to acquire goods and services
  • web ‘cookies’
  • IP Address

 

In the case of a business or website/blog/portal it is often a statement that declares a party’s policy on how it collects, stores, and releases personal information it collects. It informs the client what specific information is collected, and whether it is kept confidential, shared with partners, or sold to other firms or enterprises.

 

Privacy Policy Contents
The exact contents of a privacy policy will depend upon the applicable law and may need to address requirements across geographical boundaries and legal jurisdictions. Most countries have their own legislation and guidelines of who is covered, what information can be collected, and what it can be used for.

 

Privacy Policy in Europe
In general, data protection laws in Europe cover the private sector as well as the public sector. Their privacy laws apply not only to government operations but also to private enterprises and commercial transactions.

 

Privacy Policy in America
In North America, privacy laws (except in Quebec) apply only to the public sector, not to the private sector. However, most private sector organizations in North America have taken the initiative to develop their own privacy policies and codes of conduct.

 

Google Privacy Policy
Google operates a highly popular PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising network known as Adsense. This is a very popular method for ‘monetizing’ websites, blogs, forums and portals. When site visitors click on an Adsense link, this click is registered by Google and the revenue generated by this click is shared with the site publisher.

Google Adsense requires that web publishers prominently feature an Adsense-Compliant Privacy Policy on their website.
