STEP 1: Specify information
STEP 2: Provide An explanation
To garner an environment wherein your users/ customers trust you, it is a good idea to provide them with an explanation as to why this information is necessary for your business Creating a narrative wherein they feel that sharing their information to organisation is in some way beneficial for them may make them less skeptical about it. Using language such as ‘creating a personalised experience’ is an impactful way of bringing meaning to the use of their data. Over recent years, customers have become more aware and critical as to how their personal information is used and shared as a result of the rise of online platforms.
STEP 3: Specify method of information collection
STEP 4: Specify user’s information and its accessibility to third parties
It is extremely important that you mention any third parties involved who may also have access to this information. This is crucial as your customers might be willing to share their personal information with you but not with others. Therefore, you need to ask your users for consent and provide them with the option to opt in or opt out of having their information be shared with third parties.
STEP 5: Explain future updates
STEP 6: User information protection
Cybersecurity is an important issue that every organisation must consider. Having an actionable plan on what you will do in an instance of cyber-attacks must be thoroughly communicated with your users/customers. This includes stating the current software being used, encrypted files etc.
