At Novcon we believe that organisations should have privacy notices that allow consumers to understand their privacy rights and to make informed decisions. We can achieve this by making sure that the wording, structure, and design of our privacy notices are so clear that consumers can easily find what they need, understand what they find, and use that information.
Here are our favourite examples of privacy notices that do just that:
The people at DuckDuckGo are so serious about online privacy, their privacy notice is shorter than a Tweet: We don’t collect or share personal information.
#3 The Juro
There are many elements of Juro’s privacy notice that we find delightful, but our favourite by far is the very last section called ‘Making this policy great’. It congratulates the reader on reaching the end of the policy, giving us the warm and fuzzies. We appreciate the clever use of icons, ‘read more’ links and colour. Unfortunately, Juro’s writing is somewhat inconsistent.
Jenny transformed this:
You are responsible for any activity that occurs through your account and you agree you will not sell, transfer, license or assign your account, followers, username, or any account rights. With the exception of people or businesses that are expressly authorized to create accounts on behalf of their employers or clients, Instagram prohibits the creation of and you agree that you will not create an account for anyone other than yourself. You also represent that all information you provide or provided to Instagram upon registration and at all other times will be true, accurate, current and complete and you agree to update your information as necessary to maintain its truth and accuracy.
Don’t use anybody else’s account without their permission or try to find out their login details.
