Too many Privacy Policies are lengthy and opaque, the result being that users don’t understand what they are signing up to. This can of course be blamed on the users who are supposed to be responsible adults and should look into what they sign up for; however, I don’t consider this a reasonable view. It is not beyond the whit of companies to make simple summaries of their policies whilst referring to a more legalistic version for the absolute ground truth.
“for any other purpose for which the information was collected.”
This is a classic of bore you until you can’t be bothered and then give you the ‘sucker punch’ of “oh and anything else we can think of, so don’t complain later we didn’t tell you”. I am not impressed.
