Privacy notices – clarity and effectiveness

“Please tick here to confirm you have read and agree to our privacy policy”

This is a phrase we see a lot when registering on websites, filling in forms, installing software and logging into apps. But how many of us can honestly say we always click through to the privacy policy and read the terms? Do we all need a lawyer on hand to help us to understand the complex provisions? Should an organisation be able to do whatever is written in its policy merely because we had the opportunity to read it and were forced to accept it?

This article answers these questions and discusses some recent developments in relation to privacy notices.
