Macedonia: Increasing number of e-stores with privacy policies
The latest monitoring of the presence of privacy policies in the e-stores conducted in February 2012 by the Metamorphosis team indicates an increase in the number of e-stores, as well as an increased percentage of privacy policies in this sector.
The survey indicates a significant increase in the number of e-stores, from 57 in July 2011, to 81 in February 2012. In February 2012, 80% of the active e-stores had privacy policies, an increase of 3% compared to July 2011.
Since May last year, the Metamorphosis team held 5 presentations as part of the trainings on opening e-stores, organized by Exquisite in the Yes Incubator. Presentations were held as a follow-up to the Online Privacy Initiative, aimed at increasing the public awareness for online privacy protection among members of the key target groups.
