"which will provide organisations with a practical and common sense approach to protecting individuals’ privacy online. The new draft guidance explains how the law applies and calls on organisations to give people the right degree of choice and control over their personal information, for instance by giving them clear privacy choices or making it easier for people to erase their personal information at the end of a browsing session."
The consultation begins on 9 December 2009 and ends on 5 March 2010.
What makes life unnecessarily difficult for those wanting to read the consultation document is that the ICO are using a new "consultation portal" where you can respond online, but the link to read and comment on the consultation document only leads to a list of links to the contents -
I can understand their wanting to separate comments section by section, but why not give us the option to print the whole thing to read?
There's a Search box but it doesn't work (I tried it in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome), please give me a single PDF or webpage I can search -
As you can tell, I don't think this consultation portal is as good as it could be, if the aim is to encourage consultation responses.
As for the substantive content, I'll post my views if I find the time to print out all 13 sections! Probably over the Christmas break.
