PPGS Grade B

Overall Grade: B

1. Transparency (Clear and Complete):

The LinkedIn privacy policy is written in clear and simple language, making it easy for users to understand. The policy covers the types of personal data and usage information collected, but there could be more clarity on certain aspects.

2. User Control (Access, Deletion, and Changes):

The policy allows users to access their personal information and provides options to modify or delete it. However, it lacks clear instructions on how users can exercise these rights. The policy does mention the ability to opt-out of certain data collection and sharing practices.

3. Third-party Sharing (Limits and Consent):

The policy outlines the circumstances in which personal information is shared with third parties. It covers whether users can give or withhold consent for sharing their personal information. However, there could be more detail on the limits placed on third-party sharing.

4. Security Measures:

The policy describes the security measures in place to protect users’ personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. It ensures the commitment to maintaining the security of users’ data.

5. Notification of Changes:

The policy explains how users will be informed of significant changes to privacy practices. It mentions that updates will be provided through email and notifications on the website.

6. Readability:

The policy is written clearly and concisely, making it understandable for an average 9th-grade United States student. It meets the readability criteria.

The LinkedIn privacy policy mainly meets the criteria for transparency, user control, third-party sharing, security measures, notification of changes, and readability. However, there are some areas where improvements can be made, such as providing clearer instructions on how users can exercise their access and deletion rights and providing more comprehensive information on third-party sharing limits. Overall, it offers decent privacy protection but has room for improvement.

“Friends don’t spy; true friendship is about privacy, too.”
Ayn Rand
Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

If we don't act now to safeguard our privacy, we could all become victims of identity theft.

Anyone who steps back for a minute and observes our modern digital world might conclude that we have destroyed our privacy in exchange for convenience and false security
Edward Snowden
I don't see myself as a hero because what I'm doing is self-interested: I don't want to live in a world where there's no privacy and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity.
