To get it started,
Why are such agreements necessary?
- What data do you collect
- How do you collect this data
- How do you store and protect this data
Is there any difference between the data being collected?
The United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides the following definition of identity information:
“Any information about a private person held by the agency, including (1) any information that can be used to find out or track the identity of a private person, such as name, social security number, date and place of birth, mother’s maiden name and biometric records; and (2) any other information that is related to or that may be associated with a private person, such as medical, educational, financial and personnel information. ”
Defined of Non-confidential information as:
“Information that may relate to an individual, account or profile, but which is not sufficient to identify, contact or find the location of the individual to whom this information belongs.”
Among the examples are:
- Web browser type
- Web browser plugin information
- Local time zone
- Date and time of each visitor’s request (e.g. entry, exit to/from each web page)
- Language selection
- Referrer site
- Type of device (e.g. PC, laptop, smartphone)
- Screen Resolution, Screen Color Depth, System Fonts
Many concerned users use special web browser extensions to mask this data. By the way, VPNs prevent the use of certain types of non-confidential data. For example, a VPN service may mask the time spent visiting the ait and the user’s time zone. If you want to know more about VPN, go here.
Websites that do not comply with GDPR standards may receive fines of up to EUR 20 million or 4% of total revenue.
Due to the complexity and the sheer volume of online privacy agreements, most users simply don’t read them. In fact, according to one study, these agreements are so complex that on average it would take the user 30 full working days to read the agreements of all the websites he visits during the year.
Despite the complexity, these agreements nevertheless relate to those aspects that concern most Internet users most of all: data protection, fraud protection and privacy. As online users are increasingly concerned with protecting private information, website owners, in turn, need to make their privacy agreement as clear and clear as possible. Below we provide an analysis that details the most important sections of this agreement and provides a free template for phrases that will become a clear alternative to legal jargon.
Item 1: Data Collection
- what information the website collects
- how this information is collected
- and what happens to this information
Item 2: Data Use
Companies (the same is true for their websites) that are serious about protecting user data:
- Never sell data that can be used to identify a user to third parties
- Encrypt and/or anonymize data to protect the database from hacking
- Only a small amount of time is stored
Item 3: Online Commerce Guidelines
Item 4: Transfer of data to third parties
This section should describe in simple language the relationship of the website with third parties. Ideally, your website should not share or sell data that can be used to identify users until there is a legitimate reason for this. It should also detail what your company does with non-confidential information.
Item 5: Data Security and Tracking
To date, the best examples of confidentiality agreements is
- how data is protected and cookies are used.
Item 6: Ways to cancel your subscription
