The company should clearly disclose that it provides notice and documentation to users when it changes its privacy policies.
It is common for companies to change their privacy policies as their business evolves. However these changes can significantly impact a user’s privacy rights and what user information companies can collect, share and store. We therefore expect companies to commit to notify users when they change these policies and to provide users with information to help them understand what these changes mean.
This metric seeks clear disclosure by companies of their timeframe for notifying users about changes to privacy policies.
Privacy policies – Documents that outline a company’s practices involving the collection and use of information, especially information about users.
Clearly disclose(s) – The company presents or explains its policies or practices in its public-facing materials in a way that is easy for users to find and understand.
