Let me play “David Blaine”:http://www.davidblaine.com/ for a moment and channel your inner thoughts.
Think about your privacy policy.
Imagine the first line of it. Read it silently to yourself in your mind and I’ll see if I can make out what it might be.
Are you thinking “Your privacy is very important to us”?


I had a client recently who provided me with the copy for _their_ privacy policy page and it looked _very_ sophisticated – and included privacy coverage for things we weren’t planning on doing on the site. And that got me to wonderin’…
A quick Google search on “We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a “cookie”” revealed where they had “found”:http://pages.ebay.com/help/newtoebay/cookies-web-beacons.html their policy.
It looks like they aren’t alone because (at this moment) “We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a cookie”:http://www.google.com/search?&q=%22+We+offer+certain+features+that+are+only+available+through+the+use+of+a+%22cookie%22.%22 reveals that 718 other sites had the same idea.
So where did your privacy policy come from?
