In this month’s Contract Corner, we are highlighting considerations for drafting an up-to-date privacy policy.

Drafting and posting a clear, concise, and accurate privacy policy is one of the most important tasks when creating a company’s website, particularly given today’s legal and regulatory environment. Privacy policy legal requirements are becoming more stringent and shortcomings less tolerated, and consumer sensitivity to privacy concerns are at an all-time high.

Does your website or application collect user data? Does your company sell that user data to other third parties, such as advertisers? Does your company disclose this practice to your users in a privacy policy or terms or use? If you answered yes to these questions, you are most certainly not alone. But is your disclosure sufficient? That is the question a new challenge is poised to answer.

As 2018 comes to a close, we have once again compiled all the links to our Contract Corner blog posts, a regular feature of Tech & Sourcing @ Morgan Lewis. In these posts, members of our global technology, outsourcing, and commercial transactions practice highlight particular contract provisions, review the issues, and propose negotiating and drafting tips. If you don’t see a topic you are interested in below, please let us know, and we may feature it in a future Contract Corner.
