Web Site Privacy Notices
A web site privacy notice (or privacy statement) is a public description of an organization's information management practices with respect to information collected by the organization's web site. Such notices serve two purposes:
- educating your visitors and users
- institutional accountability
Notification of privacy practices is a basic principle of good information management, and builds visitor confidence. Furthermore, the process of creating and maintaining a privacy notice requires web site content owners and site managers to understand their information-handling practices and may reveal potential issues to be addressed.
