- How does the company protect the information it collects?
- How does the company use the information it collects?
- Does the company share the information it collects with others, and if so, what is shared and with whom is the information shared?
- Do customers have control over their personal data, and if so, what control do they have?
4. Have a COPPA Compliant Policy for Users Under 13 Years Old:
5. Be Clear About Your No Spamming Policy:

While enforcement is spotty, the FTC does have the power and does on occasion actually prosecute companies that violate the promises in their privacy policies.
