If people were to actually stop and read all of them for every website that they visited, they could spend on the order of 200 to 250 hours a year — about a month of time at work each year that you could spend reading privacy policies.

I wonder if there’s a crowd-source project here that users can then identify what’s most important to them and each form would highlight/flag the appropriate policy.

Just a reminder folks,”instant personalization” is set to opt-in by default. So remember to set it to “not allow” if that is your choice. Go to “Account” pull down. Select “Privacy Settings,” then “Applications and Websites,” and then edit settings for “Instant Personalization.”
