When it comes to flavored coffee, go for sugar-free. You’ll avoid the empty calories and maintain your weight loss goals.

Dietitians often recommend coffee to help lose belly fat, which can lead to health complications over time. But the type of coffee matters: some beans are higher in polyphenols than others.


Cookies are small files that web servers save on users’ computers. When a web page is visited, the server sends the cookie back to the browser with the requested information. The browser then stores the cookie for future reference.

Cookies help make websites work as they should and allow for user customization. However, they can also be used to track a user’s browsing activity across multiple sites, which raises privacy concerns. In addition, they can be used to target advertising on a website.

These concerns have led to new legislation in Europe, the United States and other countries that require websites to obtain consent from visitors before storing non-essential cookies on their devices. They have also prompted renewed debate over digital privacy and how best to balance the benefits of cookies with users’ rights and expectations. The good news is that there are tools available, such as Termly’s free cookie scanner and our Cookie Policy Generator, that can help ensure you have the most up-to-date and accurate information about your cookies.

Embedded Content From Other Websites

When you embed a block of media such as a video or image, the code for it is added to your page’s HTML. This allows it to appear as part of your page and be viewed and shared in the same way as other content on your Dialogue. If your site collection administrator hasn’t allowed you to embed content from external websites, you’ll see an error message when trying to add it.

Most major social media and video platforms allow you to embed their content on your pages, in exchange for a link back to the source site. This helps keep your readers on your site and makes the experience better for them. It also helps prevent them from being sent off to other sites where they may encounter clickjacking attacks or data theft attempts.

When you embed content from other websites, those sites are able to collect data on your actions and behavior. This is why it’s important to make sure that you only embed content from websites with secure URLs, which are identified by the prefix HTTPS.

Who We Share Your Data With

Despite the fact that most Americans say they are asked to approve privacy policies before agreeing to them, few actually read them. Moreover, among those who do read them, only one-in-five say they read the entire policy. As a result, people are understandably wary about how companies handle their personal information. Roughly three-in-ten report having experienced at least one of the following major problems: someone put charges on their credit or debit card without permission; somebody took over their social media or email account without permission; or some other issue that threatened their identity or financial security.

In the United States, data retention laws vary by state, but the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California’s Consumer Privacy Act require that companies clearly articulate their retention policies and be able to demonstrate compliance. Our retention policy is based on the needs of our business and legal obligations. It is also influenced by our obligation to protect the vital interests of you and others. The length of time that we retain your data depends on the purpose for which it was collected.

How Long We Retain Your Data

A privacy policy should include a description of how long the company will retain its customers’ personal information. This will depend on regulatory requirements and business needs. The policy should also describe the process for securely destroying personal data when it’s no longer needed.

A good privacy policy should also provide contact information for someone within the organization who can answer questions about the company’s privacy practices. This will be important to consumers who may have concerns or need to make a complaint. The policy should also indicate whether the company is a member of any programs that offer assistance with consumer complaints, such as TRUSTe and BBBOnline Reliability Programs.

A privacy policy should also indicate if the company will share customer personal information with other businesses or government agencies. This will depend on local, state, national and international policies, rules and laws that regulate the collection of sensitive information, minimize individual privacy risk and meet compliance with data subject access requests. A company should regularly update its privacy policies as regulations change.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

For businesses and websites that collect personal data, privacy laws (including PIPEDA, GDPR, CCPA) require you to disclose your policies in clear, easy-to-read language. You also need to offer an opt-out to make it easy for people to take back their information. And because technology changes so quickly, it’s important that your policy is up-to-date.

For example, recent changes to cloud storage can affect what expectations you can have about your data — a fact that was not factored into the Supreme Court’s Carpenter decision. Contemporary ethicists talk of a “golden rule” for data: that those who receive personal information have an obligation to treat it as a fiduciary would, which includes acting in the interests of the data subject and refraining from self-dealing.

Even if you’re not required by law to have a privacy policy, having one can help build loyalty with users and reflect well on your business. And if you do have to follow the letter of the law, it’s important that you do so, since violating privacy laws can lead to serious fines.

Where Your Data Is Sent

If you have a good privacy policy, it should clearly list where your company sends data. This helps protect you against a customer who claims they didn’t know you would share their data. For example, if your company collects birthdates to build an internal sales demographic and then sells those dates to a marketing company, you should list this in your privacy policy.

Your company should also make the privacy policy easily accessible to customers and site visitors. This can be done by adding a link in the footer of your website or placing it in menus on mobile apps. It should also provide an internal contact or point person to answer questions and concerns about the policy.

A good privacy policy demonstrates that you care about your customers’ personal information. It shows that you’re taking steps to keep it secure and follow all relevant regulations. It can also help you avoid the costly consequences of a data breach or legal action by customers who feel you haven’t lived up to your privacy promises.
