Total Page Count 2

Privacy: 1 page; Trademark Policy: 1 page. I almost think it's too short.

The Right to Privacy 4 out of 5

BAD ASPECTS: There is no date on the privacy policy, so it's unclear how current it is. The first paragraph could be broken up into three sentences that are much clearer. GOOD ASPECTS: It's super short. Just three paragraphs. No personally identifiable information is retained by Harvard Law.

The Right to Equal, Fair, & Reasonable Expression 5 out of 5

This is almost not applicable because it seems to be a static website; there doesn't seem to be any way for someone to 'log in' or 'create an account'. Therefore, they get a 5.

The Right to Control My Intellectual Property 5 out of 5

The trademark notice is exclusively regarding the trademarks owned by Harvard Law. Therefore, there is no restriction.


The Right to Sue 4 out of 5

Law is presumably Massachusetts, though it doesn't say. Also, you probably don't have any standing to sue because it's very unlikely you or your business can be damaged since it's a static website, unless they somehow defame you. GOOD ASPECTS: No restrictions. BAD ASPECTS: I wish it would tell visitors clearly where to file a lawsuit if necessary.

The Right to Low-Cost Arbitration 4 out of 5

See above.

The Right to Join a Class Action 5 out of 5

No waiver.

The Right to No Hidden Terms or Fees 5 out of 5

Not applicable.

The Right to Fair Process & To Be Heard 0 out of 5

Not applicable.

The Right to Appeal & The Right to Return 0 out of 5

The Right to Reasonable Terms 0 out of 5
