Congress, FTC Look at Online Privacy

A new buzz phrase is emerging in this area called, “privacy by design” which is thoroughly considered by the Information Law Group in this post.  Here are some highlights:

  • Know how and when your business interacts with consumers and the implications on the privacy of the information they provide
  • Consider the demographic of your company’s products or market – certain segments will be more concerned about privacy protections than others
  • Stay abreast of what the FTC and Congress is doing in this area as it’s pretty fluid right now
  • Keep in mind data collection, security and retention when drafting the appropriate policies
