Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Making Privacy Notices Simple: An OECD Report and Recommendations, OECD Digital Economy Paper No. 120 (July 24, 2006) (full-text).
Privacy notices are an excellent tool to disclose an organization’s privacy practices and policies. Research suggests, however, that many notices are too lengthy, confusing, and contain complex legal language. This report recommends that privacy notices be short, simple and usable to make it easier for individuals to assimilate the information they contain and to compare the privacy practices of the organizations processing their personal data.
