Grade and Review of

PPGS Grade B

Overall Grade: B


The privacy policy of Pinterest meets several of the PPGS criteria, but there is room for improvement. The policy demonstrates transparency by using clear and simple language to explain the types of personal data collected and the purposes for collecting it. Users are provided with some level of control, as they can access, delete, and modify their personal information. However, the policy could expand on the options for users to opt-out of certain data collection and sharing practices. The policy adequately outlines when personal information may be shared with third parties and provides some information on user consent. However, it could be more explicit about any limits on third-party sharing. The security measures in place to protect users’ personal information are described, but the commitment to maintaining security could be more explicitly stated. The policy explains how users will be notified of significant changes to privacy practices, but the methods of notification are not specified. In terms of readability, the policy is generally clear and understandable for an average 9th-grade student, although some sections may require a higher reading level. Overall, while the policy meets several criteria, there are areas where it could be strengthened to enhance privacy protection.

“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.
Bill Nelson - NASA
If we don't act now to safeguard our privacy, we could all become victims of identity theft.
John Twelve Hawks
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.
