Step 2

Find out where your data lives.

Most companies have privacy or data policy webpages specifying the types of information they collect and who can access this data. Reviewing these policies can help you decide whether you feel comfortable sharing your information with the companies. To find a company’s privacy or data policies, look for a link at the bottom of its website or within its app. Make sure you understand what the policies say, and remember that a company’s policies are only as good as its commitment to complying with them.
