The IAOC would like community input on a proposed IETF websites’ Privacy Policy.

We are required by California law (and good net citizenship) to have an accurate 
privacy policy on our websites.  Counsel have reviewed this statement for compliance 
with US and EU privacy regulations.  

The policy discusses the following:
  a.  Information collected
  b.  What’s done with the information
  c.  Information accessible to the public
  d.  Cookies and other tracking technologies
  e.  Participant database
  f.  Security
  g.  Links
  h.  Discussion groups
  i.  Children
  j.  Compliance
  k.  Consent and changes to this policy

The proposed Privacy Policy is located here:

The IAOC will consider all comments received by 17 February 2015.
