California Issues Recommendations for Privacy Policies

The California Attorney General recently published recommendations
for developing meaningful privacy policies that comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act of 2003 (CalOPPA), including recommendations for complying with “Do Not Track” disclosure requirements.  According to the Attorney General, a meaningful privacy policy is one that addresses significant data collection and use practices, uses plain language, and is presented in a readable format.  While the recommendations are not regulations, mandates,
or legal opinions, they do identify certain best practices for privacy policies that satisfy the minimum legal requirements.
