In the age of digital dependency and ease of access to information, companies are having to rethink the way they collect and retain data from users. With the threat of hacking and Internet misuse at an all-time high, users are demanding a new wave of transparency from websites and social media apps they once trusted in.
The New Age of Privacy Policies
Are teenagers and tween-agers on social media? The answer is unequivocally yes, and this can be problematic. Companies need to be diligent when it comes to underaged users by laying out any information they collect about young users and any expectations they have of them. One way this can be done is by not allowing users under a certain age to use parts of a website or an app.
Personal Information Privacy
Most people are concerned about how their information will be handled. The latest news when it comes to cybersecurity failings features mishandled privacy information, so companies need to include this information upfront and honestly.
Most people have heard of cookies and understand the idea of what they do, but having a fully transparent outline of how your company utilizes them will instill trust with users. Experienced Web users and app users will want to know how sophisticated series of cookies function and what type of data is being extracted.
