UK ICO Offers Guidance On Privacy Notices Under The GDPR And The UK Data Protection Act

The UK's Information Commissioner's Office recently updated its code of practice for privacy notices in an effort to help companies comply with the “good practice” recommendations in the Code.
The ICO has recommended that businesses inquire and test before launching any privacy notice language, as well as construct a layered notice, being cognizant of third party transfers and remaining compliant with the GDPR.
In addition, the ICO encourages businesses to use a combination technique when presenting privacy information, including front page notice of unexpected use, a just-in-time notice, separate opt-in boxes for different uses, dashboards, and icons, symbols and videos.
