Hi Guys,

When is the dead-line to have privacy statement added on your website?

It's a current requirement, so my interpretation is that the "deadline" was the moment you clicked your acceptance of the updated terms. (Realistically, I expect that Google is allowing a reasonable time to update your terms, but by now I don't see why any site couldn't be in compliance.)

i have been clicking the "remind me next time" radio button until we fully comply with the new requirements. from the login page:

You must accept the above Terms and Conditions by May 25, 2008, or you will no longer be able to login to AdSense and make changes to your Account.)

nomis5: its odd, but Google seems to be taking the point of view that you have to meet your local privacy requirements, so they can't help you.

This isn't from my correspondence, but is what I have gathered from what other people have said here following the 'require cookie notification' change

Anyone ever track how much traffic their privacy policy page gets?

On my info site, with only a relatively small amount of user generated content, it's about 1 in 10,000 visitors.

What is the use of privacy page. I visit the adsense site, cookies stored/used already then go to the privacy policy page - this doesnt help, no way to undo adsense cookies from homepage visit.

The only page I dont run adsense adverts is the homepage, and this is the only page that links to my privacy statement :)

i couldn't tell from the terms anything about how accessible the privacy page need be. I have added links to mine from the home page and the site map.

I have seen MFA sites proudly displaying their cut and paste privacy policy...so that is great that they conform to the adsense policy but still the sites are a joke so...joketown privacy policy = joketown MFA but within new money making policy parameters...YAWN!
