Does the service allow third-party access to private personal data? No

10/10

Decided May 17, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This may come in the form of outright data sharing or by using local third-party analytics software (such as Google Analytics, which collects a plethora of user information).

Note that whether the policy allows sharing aggregated user data does not affect this question.

If the personal data is encrypted when it passes through the third-party, it does not count as third-party access (as the data is inaccessible to that party).

If personal data has been made public by, for example, posting it to a blog, it does not count as private personal information (and is therefore not considered by this question).

5/5

Decided May 17, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 6% of the final score.

Collection

Is it clear why the service collects the personal data that it does? Yes

10/10

Decided May 17, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This question deals with transparency. Even if the service uses data for reasons that aren't ideal for privacy, provided they list all of those uses, the service can still receive full credit for this question. However, if they are not explicit about their uses (by employing language like "such as"), a lower score is assigned.
