Most states require website owners to create and post website privacy policies. A recent opinion from the Third Circuit Court of Appeals (linked here) demonstrates the importance of ensuring that website privacy policies accurately reflect the actual privacy practices of the website. Otherwise, the policy might be viewed as deceptive and can give rise to litigation, including claims for invasion of privacy.

Sussman Shank is available to assist with website privacy policies and the laws, principles and best practices related to them.
