As an example, take a look at the 1-paragraph Privacy section of Google Analytics US Terms Of Service document, and compare it to their 4-paragraph Privacy section in the TOS for the UK. The common verbiage is around the fact that they collect information, using a cookie as an identifier, and they do not want site operators to send them any personally identifiable information. A good idea to be sure.
There are a few differences worth noting:
- They have a short paragraph noting that Google may review your website to make sure you've posted an appropriate policy.
- Finally, they note that they will retain all of the data.
Oh, and perhaps Xavier can come out of retirement to confirm that the French version does indeed look like the UK version (it looks the same to me...but of course, I can't read French).
