Grade and Review of

PPGS Grade B

Overall Grade: B


The Yahoo privacy policy addresses several key aspects of privacy protection but also has room for improvement.

Transparency: The policy is written in clear and straightforward language, making it accessible to users. It provides comprehensive coverage of the types of personal data and usage information collected, as well as the purposes for collecting such data.

User Control: The policy allows users to access their personal information and provides options to delete or modify it. However, it could be more explicit about opt-out choices for data collection and sharing practices.

Third-party Sharing: The policy outlines when personal information is shared with third parties but lacks clarity on user consent for such sharing. It does mention limits on third-party sharing but could provide more specific details.

Security Measures: The policy describes security measures in place to protect users’ personal information, demonstrating a commitment to safeguarding data.

Notification of Changes: The policy explains how users will be informed of significant changes to privacy practices, although it doesn’t specify the methods of notification.

Readability: The privacy policy is well-written and generally understandable, aligning with the readability level of an average 9th-grade United States student.

In conclusion, while the Yahoo privacy policy covers several important aspects of privacy protection, there are areas that could be enhanced to provide stronger user control and clearer information on third-party sharing and notification methods.

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

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.
