So why are most privacy policies confusing? How can an unintelligible mass of words be transformed into a user friendly policy? Let’s take a look at a well made policy to learn more.
We don’t read we scan
For starters, they divide all the information in easy to scan blocks. We don’t read: we scan. And these large distinct blocks make it easy for us to locate and consume information; instead of getting lost in the document!
Next, UHEAA uses a table to show what information they share and if one can limit it. This is great because I can quickly find an important topic and then see if it’s shared and if I have any control over it.
Make contact easy
Have you ever tried to find the contact information for a company and been thwarted? That can be very frustrating, especially when it comes to your private details. UHEAA, however, has made it very easy to contact them with more questions. At the bottom of the page you can find their phone number and email address easily.
If we flip to the backside, UHEAA uses the distinct blocks to collect similar information together. Quickly, one can find out who sent this notice, what UHEAA does, and a list of definitions.
