1. Several Third Parties
It is typical for services to rely on third parties to share information on their visitors/customers. But where should you draw the line?
It may not be a major concern in some circumstances if it is a blog/website that does not directly gather any data from you. However, if a service works with customers, user accounts, or other user-generated data; it must provide information about all third parties involved in the data gathering methods.
2. Creative Wording
Some privacy policies emphasize avoiding crucial details; in order to avoid being questioned. Such rules can be identified by scanning for excessive terminology, jargon, and an unclear tone.
3. A lack of information
4. Date Last Updated
If the policy contains a lot of text that doesn’t make much sense
that’s a poor sign. Some businesses/services strive to make the policy complicated in order to irritate readers & prevent them from reading it.
