#52272 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Inconsistent use of "Your" in boilerplace privacy policy

Reported by: TylerTork Owned by: Shital Patel
Milestone: 5.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Privacy Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:

Description

The privacy policy is addressed to the website visitor. In this document the word "we" refers to the website owner. The word "your" refers to the website visitor.

Therefore, the heading "Your contact information" in the default policy text, is incorrect. The section is intended to tell how to contact the website owners, and is not about the visitor's contact information.

Please change the section header to something like, "How to contact us".

Hello and thank you for opening this ticket.
However, my preferred option would probably be to remove the word "Your" and only keep "Contact information".

Adding this to milestone 5.7.

In 49956:

Privacy: Clarify the "Contact information" heading in default privacy policy content.

The section is intended to tell how to contact the website owners, and is not about the visitor's contact information.
