Here’s the legal stuff: The Washington State Office of the Chief Information Officer, Consolidated Technology Services, Washington Technology Solutions and Office of Privacy and Data Protection (collectively, the “State of Washington”) have provided free access to the Privacy Checklists. Use of the Privacy Checklists App is not a substitute for legal advice, especially with respect to compliance with or interpretation of complex privacy laws. When in doubt, consult your lawyers! If you have questions about compliance with Washington’s Public Records Act, consult our resource link to the Act, or use the Open Government Resource Guide
The Privacy Checklists App contains only general information about legal matters and does not attempt to make recommendations about statutory interpretation based on the scenarios selected by the user. None of the information generated in the checklists constitutes legal advice. You ultimately are responsible for the content of the products or services that you develop based on your use of the Privacy Checklists App.
We extend the Privacy Checklists App to you with the following limitations:
- The legal information on this website and generated in the application is provided “as is” without any representations or warranties, express or implied. The State of Washington makes no representations or warranties in relation to references to legal information on its website, this Guide or in the Privacy Checklists App or its results.
- You must not rely on the information you obtain through your use of the Privacy Checklists App and related materials as an alternative to legal advice from your attorney or other professional legal services provider. If you have any specific questions about any legal matter, you should consult your attorney or other professional legal services provider.
This Privacy tool was funded, in part, with a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation as part of their Cyber Initiative.
