I've recently read Reading the Privacy Policies You Encounter in a Year Would Take 76 Work Days and was pretty shocked that it was that bad. So I thought how this could be improved.
Creative Commons licenses are nice, because they are modular:
- CC: Indicates that it is a creative commons license
- [-BY]: Attribution
- [-NC]: Non Commercial
- [-ND]: No Derivates
- [-SA]: Share Alike
I think one could eventually make such modular privacy policies. Eventually a tabular policy would be better:
- Received Information
- Information you provide to us: Name, Content, Transactional information, Location, Friends
- Collected information when you use the service: Site activity information, Access Device and Browser Information, Cookie Information
- Third Parties: ...
- Usage of Information
- Manage Service
- Sell to third parties
- Contact you
