PrivacySpy rates, highlights, and monitors privacy policies. Understand how your data is being used.
Unfortunately, most privacy policies are convoluted—sometimes even intentionally so. They can be difficult to read, and even more difficult to comprehend. Rarely do they provide actionable insight into protecting one's data.
Making matters worse, companies are often only held accountable for their privacy practices when a data breach occurs or when they experience fallout from mishandling user data (think Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal, for example). More Info »
If companies were held accountable for their privacy policies—not just for creating policies, but also for creating good ones—our data would be safer. And if our data is safer, so is democracy. Because privacy matters.
PrivacySpy is helping to make privacy policies relevant. Privacy policies should be more than just a box to check; they are fundamental to ensuring data transparency and allowing users to make informed choices. PrivacySpy is trying to make this our reality in three ways:
Ratings — We rate our policies using a consistent and vetted rubric. You can understand the key features and drawbacks of any rated policy at a glance.
Highlights — We use natural language processing to bring your attention to key elements of privacy policies. After all, reading something is better than reading nothing.
