Public-facing privacy policies are contracts that represent what an organization may and may not do with personal information. This privacy information provided to consumers is often the individual’s only insight into an organization’s privacy practices and, therefore, it plays a fundamental role in building trust.  This session will look at a number of interesting topics including:

  • Drafting an effective privacy policy
  • Are privacy notices required, in addition to privacy policies?  If so, when?
  • The role of the privacy policy in marketing privacy practices to the public
  • How to communicate changes in privacy policies and practices to provide adequate notice about new collections, uses or disclosures of personal information (and how can you establish sufficient consent to such changes).
