Companies that do a good job protecting their customers' information include Google, Microsoft and Apple, as reported by Computer Weekly. Yahoo, Twitter, Sonic, Dropbox, LinkedIn and Facebook also earn high scores for data protection and privacy as of 2015.
Customer data protection and privacy are huge issues in the digital age. After several high profile data breaches, customers often worry about whether the customer information that is stored on websites is safe.
In 2015, a different advocacy group called the Center for Plain Language conducted a review of privacy policies that ranked how understandable company privacy policies are. Google, Facebook and LinkedIn scored high in the review, whereas Uber, Twitter and Lyft scored closer to the bottom of the list.
