Peter Fleischer points us to some examples of plain language privacy policies:

…. Many government regulations aren’t really drafted for normal citizens. They’re drafted by and for lawyers, lobbyists, specialists, and regulators. The same is often true of privacy policies. I’m in the school that thinks that privacy policies should be drafted for the general public, and that they should look something like plainlanguage.gov’s privacy policy. Even the IRS, which is not an agency generally celebrated for its brevity of its prose, managed to publish a privacy policy that is exactly 7 sentences long.

Wouldn’t it be great if businesses wrote so simply and clearly?
