All in all (without even copying every single page), I had a 26 page document in front of me. Simple policy? I think not.
On the policy preview page, it talks about the type of information they collect, how they use the information, transparency and choice, accessing and updating your information, information they share, information security and a few others subjects.
After reading the 7 page document, I am still wondering where the one simple policy is.
I am neither a technophobe nor a technophile, so I feel that I, as a typical user, should be able to find this information on a page titled “Policy Preview” quickly.
Is the new policy really 7 pages long? Or have they buried it in the pages of information? Or do they not explicitly include the policy in the pages at all? To be honest, I have no idea.
The page that leads the user to the “Policy Preview” states the following:
That seems easy enough right?
I will be the first to say that Google is my ‘go to’ search engine. It’s easy, intuitive and wicked useful. That being said, I am immensely turned off that I, a person who considers herself an intelligent and technologically adept woman, cannot even FIND the new, simple, easy policy.
Am I missing something here? My guess?: Many of us are missing something, and it’s not okay. After all, in the words of Google, “This stuff matters”.
