Lawyer’s Site Scores Company Data Policies
ONLINE PRIVACYSeptember 11, 2012
TIME reports on one lawyer’s analysis of how 25 major websites handle customer data. Andrew Nichol’s ClickWrapped.com evaluates sites on four categories, including how user data is used and when it can be disclosed. The evaluations are based on a 100-point scale, and points can be gained based on whether the site’s policy is consumer-friendly. Editor’s Note: Google Senior Vice President and General Counsel Kent Walker will discuss Big Data at the Navigate 2012 executive forum, to be held in conjunction with the IAPP Privacy Academy in San Jose, CA, this October.
