Most privacy policies are unhelpful. They fail to clearly define the user's rights, they use ambiguous language, and they don't clearly explain the data they collect.
OPD:I means your data is never shared with third parties. You don't have to read
their entire policy to know your personal data will be respected.
OPD:N compliant (no individual
tracking whatsoever), and provide a link to the

For fine-grained control and flexibility, OpenPD policies have two parts: a single base policy and collection of clauses.
The base policy gives the 'big picture' about the data you collect about your users, how it's used, and how it's shared.
A simple and absolute base policy that respects the user's privacy.
Perfect for static websites, command line tools, and other simple software.
A base policy that keeps all user data internal and out of the hands of third parties.
Perfect for all projects where the users' personal data isn't the product.
A flexible base policy that keeps the user in control while still allowing data sharing.
Perfect for all other projects.
Clauses allow you to be more specific about how you use, collect, process, and share your users' data. You can include any combination of clauses in your site's OpenPD policy.
