A Perplexing Plurality of Privacy Policies
On some pages it links here:
However on other pages it links here:
One of those pages is the simple, honest PP that Instructables has had for as long as I can remember, going back to the distant bygone era of at least 2008, by my recollection at least.
and that leads to an op-out form, which contains the plural question:
"Would you like to receive information from Autodesk, our affiliates, or partners including information about new products and special promotions? Via Email?Via Phone? Via Postal Mail?"
And there are three little [Yes][No] radio buttons for those.
For some reason, maybe it's just the voices in my head, I don't even want to know what happens to anyone who submits that form. I mean its probably mostly harmless. Probably. But, still, I don't want to touch it.
Moreover, it would be extra special nice, if the PP page all Instructables pages link to is the nice, simple one, on the Instructables domain, here:
And maybe everyone here could just ignore that other PP on the Autodesk domain.
I mean, that's my suggestion for solving the consistency problem.
In fact there exists a clause in the Instructables PP under "Business Transfers", and the language in that sort of infers the Autodesk PP may be in effect. That is, assuming everyone knows about Instructables being owned by Autodesk.
What I'm saying it that you could just leave it up the members who read the Instructables PP, to conclude that the AutoDesk PP may be in effect, that might be good enough, and interested persons could look into that can of worms, on Autodesk's domain, on their own if they want to.
and call that good. Because the alternative, links to plural PPs across different domains, is confusing, and kinda looks inconsistent and bad.
