Survey: 74% of Presidential Candidate's Websites Fail on Privacy

According to an audit of the websites of the 2016 Presidential Candidates, only 6 of the 23 candidates received passing grades for their website privacy policies - Bush, Chafee, Christie, O’Malley, Santorum, and Walker. Four sites had no privacy policy at all, several failed to disclose their data disclosure practices, and several more said they would disclose personal information to others, or even sell the data. EPIC conducted the first privacy web site survey, Surfer Beware: Personal Privacy and the Internet, in 1997. And EPIC promoted non-partisan debate on privacy issues in the 2012, 2010, and 2008 Presidential elections.
