Privacy Policy

A privacy policy is a disclaimer placed on a website informing users about how the website deals with a user's personal information. The privacy policy generally contains information regarding whether or how their information is shared with parent companies, subsidiaries, or third parties. Often this also explains how or if the website uses cookies and web bugs.

Some websites also define their privacy policies using P3P or Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA), allowing browsers to automatically assess the level of privacy offered by the site. Sometimes it's not good to give your personal information and that's why you should read the privacy policy.
