Personal Data in Plain English


This was a primer I did on the collection and use of personal data. The explainer uses a simple step-by-step explanation describing your private information, how it’s collected, who’s using it, and how you can be affected.

A link to the graphic is here.

I put this together because I thought readers needed a plain-English guide to data privacy. I consulted a few outside sources, including the Center for Democracy & Technology, to make sure the information was accurate.

I used one of our new visual formats for the presentation. The format, viewable on both mobile devices and laptops, limited the amount of text that could be shown, which, in hindsight, is a bit of a handicap. I would have preferred more information on each page.

I did the visual elements in Illustrator to give the overall appearance more of a punch.
