Does your web site collect information? Does your web site post a privacy policy? If not, post one today. Here’s how:

Consumers and government regulators are looking at web sites to determine how well business protects consumer privacy. The first thing they look for is a prominently posted and clearly written privacy policy.

The Online Privacy Alliance ( encourages all commercial web sites to post such policies. A good privacy policy informs consumers about what information the web site collects and what they do with that information once it is collected. In developing your own privacy policy, ensure that it contains all the elements of the Alliance Guidelines and that the policy is backed up by effective enforcement.
