The first sweep takes begins today and continues for a week during which the enforcement agencies will focus on Privacy Practice Transparency.

In Canada, the Commissioners will be reviewing websites to determine whether they have a privacy policy and how difficult it is to locate. The Commissioners will also examine privacy policies to determine whether they contain contact information and to assess the readability of the disclosure.
