Some General Thoughts on Privacy

Privacy on the Internet has become a really great concern to ISPs, their corporate clients as well as their regular users – that makes it virtually anyone. Unlike the European Union (EU) countries and Canada, the United States does not yet have serious regulations regarding privacy on the Internet. Even though there have been some widely publicized cases of privacy violations and also considering the fact that US holds a very significant share of the world’s Internet industry, privacy can hardly be considered a seriously protected area.

About Website Privacy Policies

Many people believe that a good web site must have a Privacy Policy page. This is generally a publicly displayed document which outlines the restrictions on the ability to collect and use customer information. You would usually see a link to a web site’s privacy policy placed within the footer of the page in many cases accompanied by a “Terms of Use” link and a copyright notice.
