Privacy Still Matters

Privacy Still Matters. A Harris Interactive poll finds that 91% of consumers would do more business with firms whose privacy policies are certified.

With so much concern about safety and security today, many have assumed that privacy no longer matters.

The fact is that privacy is more important today than it ever has been. Consumers are indeed concerned about their safety and security. Their behavior has shown that their concern about these issues continues to increase.

Confirming these assertions is a Harris Interactive poll conducted November 5-11, 2001. Results summarized below.

62% Independent verification would mollify concerns

85% Policy certification should be required

91% Would do more business with companies whose privacy policies were certified.

83% Would stop doing business with a company if they heard or read that it was misusing customer information

 So now the question becomes: what are you doing to show your customers that you hear them?
