Hi,

 Just to reiterate what I said on the call yesterday: there are apps and
> sites with good, user-protective policies, and there are apps and sites with

> those policies somewhere (usually in a human-readable privacy policy), and
> some apps with not-so-good policies disclose them as well, although many do
> not. Giving appss/sites a place to communicate the most salient points from
> their policies could incentivize more good policies and create transparency
> about what the policies are (since most people do not read or understand
> privacy policies as they are today).

You're thinking of something like the Creative Commons "license deed" (for

Thanks - Paddy
