The full new policy is here. We have strived to make it simpler and more human-readable, all while ensuring it is as precise and legally robust as possible. (Just like our legal tools!) Substantively, the most significant changes are:
- We rewrote our privacy principles to better reflect the ideals that motivate CC’s current practices.
- We provided a more detailed explanation of our analytics tools and the instances in which the information they gather may be tied to your other personal information.
- We described our retention practices, which reflect CC’s recent effort to begin to streamline and centralize data storage practices internally.
- We added a simple process for you to request to access the data CC holds about you.
If you are already on our mailing list, we are not requiring you to opt back in to continue to receive CC email updates. We decided that measure was not necessary given that CC has been consistently strengthening its mailing list sign-up procedures over the years, up to the double opt-in mechanism we use now. As always, you should feel free to update your preferences or unsubscribe entirely at any time by going to this link.
CC will continue to monitor privacy regulations around the world and look for ways to improve our privacy practices.
