Giving Compass’ Take:
· After reviewing recent surveys, Pew Research Center zeroes in on the problem Americans have with understanding privacy policies and laws and how personal data is used by companies in different ways.
· How can philanthropists advocate for user privacy and data protection? Why is this so important?
Many Americans have little to no understanding of what companies are doing with the data that is collected about them. At the same time, nearly all Americans encounter companies’ privacy policies at some point. This survey explores whether they fully read them and how much they understand about these policies.
