Trying to convince clients and PHBs that spamming, selling user data and removing optout email addresses can be tough.

Help is at hand. The team in PwC Consulting responsible for advising clients on regulatory best practise have put together a generic guide on ePrivacy best practise, and have made it available as a downloadable pdf.

Recommendations include:

  • Stay abreast of emerging standards
  • Have a privacy policy that is publicly-stated, robust - and up-to-date.
  • Have good [privacy] training programmes
  • Know what your site's practises are and how they interact with your off-line business model
  • Consider [privacy] seal programmes
  • Utilise privacy sensitive technology solutions
  • Constantly control and monitor for privacy compliance
  • Utilise third party verification solutions

It's in PDF format, so you'll need Acrobat.

Disclosure: I'm a PwC Consulting eBusiness consultant. The print version of this guide arrived on my desk today - it's obviously intended to sell specific Risk Management consultancy, but the info is of value in itself.

Martin Burns has been doing this stuff since Netscape 1.0 days. Starting with the communication ends that online media support, he moved back through design, HTML and server-side code. Then he got into running the whole show. These days he's working for these people as a Project Manager, and still thinks (nearly 6 years on) it's a hell of a lot better than working for a dot-com. In his Copious Free Time™, he helps out running a Cloth Nappies online store.

Amongst his favourite things is ZopeDrupal, which he uses to run his personal site. He's starting to (re)gain a sneaking regard for ECMAscript since the arrival of unobtrusive scripting.

He's been a member of since the very early days, a board member, a president, a writer and even contributed a modest amount of template code for the current site. Above all, he likes to do things because it knowingly chooses to do so, rather than randomly stumbling into them. He's also one of the boys and girls who beervolts in the UK, although the arrival of small children in his life have knocked the frequency for 6.

Most likely to ask: Why would a client pay you to do that?

Least likely to ask: Why isn't that navigation frame in Flash?
