Layered Notice

A privacy notice designed to respond to problems with a excessively long notices. A short notice — the top layer — provides a user with the key elements of the privacy notice. The full notice — the bottom layer — covers all the intricacies in full. In its guidance on complying with the General Data Protection Regulation, the Article 29 Working Party, which has now been replaced by the European Data Protection Board, recommended a layered notice in order to meet requirements of the GDPR that privacy notices be easily accessible and easy to understand, and that clear and plain language be used.
