Grade and Review of

PPGS Grade B

Transparency (Clear and Complete): B

The privacy policy of Yahoo is written in fairly clear language, making it understandable for users. It covers the types of personal data and usage information collected, however, some sections could be more comprehensive. The purposes for collecting personal data and usage information are explained, but could be more detailed.

User Control (Access, Deletion, and Changes): B

Yahoo’s privacy policy allows users to access their personal information and provides options to delete or modify it. However, the process for accessing and modifying information is not clearly outlined, making it less user-friendly. The policy also includes opt-out options for certain data collection and sharing practices.

Third-party Sharing (Limits and Consent): B

The policy clearly outlines when personal information is shared with third parties, and users are given the ability to give or withhold consent for sharing. However, there could be more clarity on the limits of third-party sharing and the specific circumstances in which sharing occurs.

Security Measures: A

The privacy policy describes the security measures in place to protect users’ personal information and emphasizes the company’s commitment to maintaining security.

Notification of Changes: A

Yahoo’s privacy policy explains how users will be informed of significant changes to privacy practices and specifies methods of notification, such as email or updates on the website.

Readability: B

The privacy policy is written in a relatively clear and concise manner. However, the reading level seems to be slightly higher than that of an average 9th-grade United States student, which slightly affects the overall grade.

Overall Grade: B

“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.
