Questions Related to Privacy Policy Law

A privacy policy is a legal document or statement that explains the way personal information is collected, used and managed. Personal information can be any information that can identify a person. A person's name, age, contact information, marital status, hospital records, banking information, etc. are some forms of personal information. This article provides answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about issues related to this.

Are privacy policies uniform or should I hire a lawyer to review or create it?

Privacy policies vary widely from one business to another. Each policy illustrates the need for the individual use of each entity. It means what is applicable for a blog may not work for an online bank. Each policy is different and applicable to the need of the business or site. It allows the owner of the privacy policy to decide how much control they allow a user. It is advisable for you to hire an IP business attorney to help you write the privacy policy for your requirement. This will help you draft the right policy as well as save money at the same time.

Does the Privacy Act apply to hotels releasing information to anyone besides myself without my permission?

It depends on what is mentioned in the Hotels privacy policy. Laws do not mention specifically what information can be disclosed by a hotel on demand. However, if the hotel’s privacy policy mentions they can’t disclose any personal information about their guests, and still they do, then that would constitute breach of contract. While this is a serious matter, it doesn’t place the hotel in violation of any law or statute.

What happens if a bank misplaces my file and another teller, customer etc. gets access to it? In case they had taken copies from my file, can the law protect my personal information, ID, SS#, etc. from being accessed due to their negligence?

Case details: I was discussing certain issues with a bank officer at my bank. The lady pulled my file containing my personal information, photo ID, passport, SSN and account numbers. The officer left my open file on a desk next to another officer with a client.

Your personal details are protected by the bank’s privacy policy. The bank should send you a copy of the privacy policy at least once a year. They are always bound to protect your personal information. Your personal information can be accessed only when banking related business is conducted.

As for another officer accessing the information while the file was lying on the desk, they can access the information at any time by accessing your file. That per se is not a matter of concern since the person is an employee of the bank. The only concern is if and when an individual from the street walks in to the bank and sees the information lying on the desk and notes it down. In that case, the bank will be liable for any damages arising out of it.

You may discuss the issue with the bank’s manager. Convey your displeasure about the careless handling of your personal details by the bank employee. You should put forth your views without an element of hostility. After discussing the matter verbally with the manager, you have to issue a written letter demanding to know what measured they would take to address the issue. You should inform the manager that if something happens to your personal information and someone wrongfully abuses the information, the bank will be held liable since they have been informed of the matter.

If you wish to know more about how privacy policy works you may consult a business lawyer.
