New Privacy Option by WP

The Moon

The latest WP update installed a rather interesting feature in its settings options… a Privacy Policy generator!

Having a privacy policy on a website is required by US law if personal data is collected (like recording stats). Since the Facebook data mining fiasco earlier this year, sites have been making efforts to inform users that they do track stats and collect information for marketing. Even stat information is considered data gathering.

I am glad that WordPress installed this feature. The only drawback I see thus far is that the PP generator lacking some detail. Because of the lack of depth, I will continue to use my current PP and TOS plugin.
